Two women were arraigned before an Ikeja Chief Magistrate’s Court on Friday for allegedly failing to perform their duties, and causing a two-year-old girl in their care to be sexually molested.

The defendants are Deborah Babajide, 42, a teacher, who lives at No. 4D, Akinlabake St., Akerele Estate, Oworonshoki, and Toyin Odusanya, 48, a nanny, of No. 10, Abajada St., Oworonshoki, Lagos.

The defendants who worked in a private school located in the Obanikoro area of Lagos are being tried for negligence.

According to the prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, they committed the offence on May 6 at Obanikoro, Lagos.

He said that the mother of the affected girl observed that her daughter was crying while she was bathing her daughter and washing her private parts in particular.

“Out of curiosity, the mother checked the place and discovered injuries near her private parts.

“Her mother asked her about the person who touched the place, and she could only say “Aunty”, apparently referring to the two defendants,” Akeem said.

The prosecutor said that the two defendants were arrested, as the offence contravened Section 262 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Both women, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The chief magistrate, Mrs B. O. Osunsanmi, granted bail to the defendants in the sum of N200,000 each, with two sureties in like sum.

Osunsanmi adjourned the case until Sept. 26 for mention.
