The prosecutor further said that during police investigation, the defendant admitted the crime.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions sections 289, 312 and 364 of the Penal Code Law.

The Chief Magistrate, Omolola Akindele, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N1 million with two sureties in like sum.

She ordered that one of the sureties must be a civil servant on grade level 09 and above.

She adjourned the case until Sept. 22, for hearing.
