A teacher, Alayoteti Oyebode, who was accused of defiling a 14 year-old-student of the Federal Government Girls College, Oyo, has been ordered by an Oyo State family court sitting in Ibadan, to be remanded in Abolongo Correctional Centre in Oyo town.
It can be recalled that the Oyo State Police Command had arraigned Oyebode on a one-count charge bordering on having unlawful sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old student.
At the continued hearing of the matter on Thursday, 4th August, 2022, counsel to the accused, Barrister Tunde Oluponna, said the accused, Oyebode, was charged with rape rather than defilement of a child.
Meanwhile, the Investigating Police Officer in charge of the case, Kehinde Afolabi, from the Oyo State Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku, told the court that the prosecuting counsel brought a case involving a minor which is purely defilement, and not a rape case before the court.
The court compelled the prosecuting counsel to perform further investigation on the allegation against the school teacher and return to the court on the adjourned date to substantiate its claims that the accused defiled a 14-year-old student.
Justice P.O. Adetunyibi consequently ordered that the accused be remanded at Abolongo Correctional Centre and adjourned the matter till August 22, 2022 for further hearing.
