Nigerian Man In Court For Impregnating Secondary School Girl

Owoeye was charged with one count of sexual abuse.



A 32-year-old man, Ojo Owoeye, was on Friday, arraigned before chief magistrate's court in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, for molesting and impregnating a 16-year-old secondary school pupil.

Owoeye was charged with one count of sexual abuse.

The police prosecutor, Inspector Johnson Okunade, said the defendant sexually abused the girl some months ago in Ado-Ekiti, which eventually led to her being pregnant.

“The offence contravenes Section 4 of the Ekiti State Gender-based Violence (Prohibition) Law, 2011,” Okunade stated.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge.

However, the defence counsel, Ojo Abioye, said in court that the accused would take responsibility for the pregnancy and prayed the court to grant him bail.

The Chief Magistrate, Aderopo Adegboye, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N20,000 and two sureties in like sum.

Adegboye adjourned the case until September 18.
