A Family Court sitting at Iyaganku, Ibadan, on Monday, ordered the remand of a skit maker, Maruf Abdullahi, popularly known as Trinity Guy in Agodi correctional facility over alleged sexual exploitation of a 10-year-old girl.
The court also arraigned Isiaka Ahmed, 40, and his wife, Rofiat, 29, who are parents of the victim on two-count charge of conspiracy and sexual abuse and exploitation alongside the skit maker.
The Magistrate, Mrs P.O. Adetuyibi, who did not take the defendants’ plea for want of jurisdiction, said that the case file had been filed and duplicated at the Oyo State Ministry of Justice.
Adetuyibi remanded the three defendants in Agodi correctional facility, Ibadan, pending July 11 when the case would come up for mention.
The Defence Counsel, Mr Oludare Adebayo, argued that Section 41 empowered the court to hear the matter.
Adebayo also said the victim was a product of poverty.
The magistrate said that the case file had been duplicated, but added that not until the ministry of justice accepted to withdraw it that she could hear the matter.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp Oluwakemi Arowosaye, had told the court that the three defendants conspired together to sexually abuse the girl.
Arowosaye said that “Trinity”, on Dec. 17, 2022, sexually abused and exploited the girl at Kuolaa area of Ibadan.
“Abdullahi was asking the victim the colour of his penis, recording the scene and posting it on social media,” she said.
According to her, the offences are contrary to Section 35 (1) and punishable under Section 35 (2) of Oyo State Child Right’s Law, 2006.
Arowosaye said that the offences also contravened Section 516 of the Criminal Code Laws of Oyo State, 2000.
However, if the skit maker is found guilty of the offence, he is liable to 15 years imprisonment under the Child Right’s Law, 2006
‘This Is Pure Evil’ – Mary Njoku frown at Those requesting DNA Test From Mohbad’s Wife
Nollywood actress, Mary Njoku, has slammed critics questioning the paternity of the son of late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
News Direct reports that Omawunmi, the wife to Mohbad, has come under heavy backlash over the son’s complexion, with some people calling for a DNA test for the child.
In a post via Instagram on Friday, Mary described the call as pure evil and advised that people should not add to the widow’s misery.
The movie star added that if late Mohbad didn’t doubt the child’s paternity, the public should not think otherwise but should focus on getting justice for him.
She wrote: “Asking a mourning widow to submit her son for a DNA test is pure evil. Haba! She just lost a husband, lost a father to her child, lost her helper and protector of 10 years! Let her mourn in peace.
“If you can’t support her don’t add to her misery! Small money don enter for DNA tests. Just because she isn’t rich, if her husband didn’t doubt the paternity, who are we to think otherwise?
“Abeg make una no let the dead pare for una o. Don’t frustrate his family. Let’s focus on getting justice for Mohbad.”

Hard to stay sane, clean in music industry – Korede Bello
Singer Korede Bello has said it’s difficult to stay sane and clean in the entertainment industry.
He made this known in a post via his X handle #koredebello on Thursday.
He wrote on how challenging it is to stay mentally sound and sober in the entertainment industry.
According to him: “People don’t understand how hard it is to stay sane in a seemingly crazy industry. It’s even harder when you choose to stay clean.
“ So if you want to help an artiste stay alive, contribute to their mental health, support them while they’re still here with whatever you have, even if all you have are your kind words.
“You may not love their art, but you can choose to love the soul of the artist in the human being.”
