The Osun State police on Wednesday arraigned a 30-year-old-man, Adeoye Makinde before a Magistrates’ Court sitting in Osogbo for alleged sexual assault on a minor.
Makinde was arraigned on one count bordering on sexual assault of a 13-year-old.
The prosecutor, Mr Abiodun Fagboyinbo said Makinde committed the offence on 16 June 2020 at about 1:30 PM at Isona area, Ilesha.
The charge stated that “Makinde unlawfully and indecently inserts his finger into the virginal of a 13-year-old girl and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 360 of the Criminal Code Cap 34 Vol. Il Laws of Osun State of Nigeria 2002.”
The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge preferred against him.
Counsel for the accused, Mr Tunbosun Oladipupo told the court that his client is impotent urging the court to grant him bail on the most liberal term.
The Magistrate requested for the medical report from the police and Mr Fagboyinbo presented the report to the court, however, it was later returned to him after he checked the details of the report.
The Magistrate, Mr B. I Omisade said that the medical report that the prosecutor presented to the court indicated that the minor is still a virgin. He thereby granted the accused person bail with the sum of N200,000 with one surety who must be a blood relation.
He adjourned the case to 10/8/2020 and transfer the matter to Ilesha Magistrate Court for mention.
