Lado will remain at the Correctional Facility until July 28, 2022, when Senior Magistrate Fadile Dikko, who ordered his remand, will hear his case.

Lado was charged in Senior Magistrate Court on Tuesday. The police prosecutor, Inspector Lawal Bello, stated that on that day, the accused reportedly ambushed a nine-year-old girl along a bush trail and forcedly had carnal knowledge of her.

He, however, was subsequently arrested.
