Osunsanmi said that the sureties must have verifiable addresses.

She ordered that the sureties must also provide evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

The magistrate, however, referred the case file to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution  for  legal advice and adjourned the matter till  Oct. 19

The Prosecutor, Insp  Simeon Imhonwa, said the accused,  who resides at Onadeko Street in Lawanson, Surulere, Lagos,  committed the offence at Adekunle St., Makoko, Lagos, on Aug. 6.

“The accused had forceful carnal knowledge of the victim without her consent.

“The victim, 17, a fellow student of the same university, had earlier followed the accused to a beach party at Lekki, Lagos.

“But after the party, the accused took the victim to an apartment.

“On getting into the apartment, the accused started touching, kissing and fingering the victim.

“The victim struggled with the accused but it was fruitless because he kept threatening to deal with her through blackmail.

“He eventually had forceful  carnal knowledge of the victim without her consent,” he said.

The prosecutor said that the case was reported by University of Lagos authorities and the matter was transferred to Sabo Police Division.

The offence, he added,  contravened Section 260 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
