The police charged Mr Adebayo, who resides in Mende, Maryland in Lagos State, with defilement and sexual assault.

Magistrate Ejiro Kubeinje, who did not take Mr Adebayo’s plea, ordered that he should be remanded in a custodial centre.

Magistrate Kubeinje directed the police to send the case file to the state Director of Public Prosecutions for advice, and adjourned the case until February 15 for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Kehinde Ajayi said that Mr Adebayo committed the offence on December 30, at Jonah close, Mende, Maryland in Lagos.
