The state prosecutor, Mrs Arinola Momoh-Ayokanbi, Adelana told the court that the suspect committed the offences from June 2018 to January 2019 at his residence. Momoh-Ayokanbi said the defendant lured the boys with cash gifts before sexually assaulting them.“The defendant sexually assaulted the complainants (names withheld) by having anal sex with them.“He sexually assaulted the first complainant, an 18-year-old makeup artist, from June to November 2018.“The second complainant, a 17-year-old trader was sexually assaulted from November 2018 to January 2019,” she said. The prosecutor said the defendant was arrested after the second complainant told his mother what had happened. The offences contravene Section 261 of the Criminal Law of Lagos 2015. Justice Abiola Soladoye ordered that the defendant be remanded at a correctional centre. Soladoye then adjourned the case until April 22, for trial.
