Adegboye told the court that Salimon unlawfully had carnal knowledge of the victim identified as T. Sunday, when the latter attempted to retrieve the borrowed charger.
”When she went to pick the charger, a friend to the victim’s neighbour allegedly raped her,” he added.
The prosecutor argued that the offence is contrary to Section 357 and punishable under section 358 of the Criminal Code laws of Oyo State, 2000.
Having heard the prosecutor’s argument, the Magistrate O. A. Enilolobo ordered that the suspect should be remanded at Agodi Correctional facility, Ibadan.
In her ruling, Enilolobo maintained that Salimon must remain in demand pending the outcome of the case file at the Oyo State Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP).
She, however, adjourned the matter till October 18, for mention.
In a related development, the Akwa Ibom State Government recently charged one Moses Armstrong with rape, intimidation, conspiracy and supplying of drugs or instruments to procure abortion.
The charges of Armstrong, a former aide to Governor Udom Emmanuel of the state, were read to the former for the first since his arrest on Monday, June 13, 2022.
