However, the police found him guilty and charged him in the Ogba Magistrates Court with statutory rape by engaging the girl in the conduct when she was a minor.
The Court did not hear his plea after the prosecutor, Supol Victor Eruada, requested that the case be referred to the DPP for consultation.Mrs. M.O.Tonimola, the Presiding Magistrate, ordered his remand at the Correctional Centre in Kirikiri, Lagos, without the option of bail.
The Court further ordered the prosecutor to copy the file and transmit it to the DPP, while the case was deferred until the DPP’s report was complete on November 6, 2021.
If the DPP considers him liable and recommends his trial for the alleged offence exceeding jurisdiction, the case will almost certainly be referred to the High Court.
