The court heard that Obi had unlawful carnal knowledge of the boy (name withheld), on November 6, at about 6pm at his residence No. 10 Oredeyin street, Oke-Ado,Ibadan.

The Police Prosecutor, Cpl. Oluseye Oyebanji, said, “Obi serves as Lesson Teacher to other children in the neighbourhood who pay N30 daily for the lesson.

“On the fateful day, Obi allegedly called the boy to his room and asked him to remove his trouser, after which he had unlawful carnal knowledge (through the anus) of the little boy.”

Daily Post reports that Obi warned the boy not to mention the incident to anyone, but the boy told his mother who in turn reported the matter to the police.

According to Oyebanji, the offence contravened section 214 of the Criminal Code Cap 38 Vol.II Laws of Oyo state 2000. The accused reportedly pleaded not guilty to the offence.
