The accused, who resides at undisclosed address in Auchi, is facing a two-count charge bordering on attempted rape. He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge. But the prosecutor, Sgt. Daniel Mato, told the court that the accused committed the offences on Feb. 24 at his apartment somewhere in Auchi. According to him, the accused and the woman are living in the same house. “The accused touched the private part of the woman (names withheld) in an attempt to have carnal knowledge of her.’’ He said the offences contravened Sections 3,594 and 3,609 of the Criminal Code, Laws of the defunct Bendel of 1976 as applicable in Edo.
