An Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court in Osun on Monday remanded a 27-year-old school bus driver, Oluwatomisin Oyelakin, in Ilesa Prison over the alleged rape of a four-year-old girl.
The magistrate, Mrs Rofiat Olayemi, adjourned the case until Feb. 28 when a formal bail application by the accused would be considered.
The plea of the accused was not taken by the court.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Temitope Fatoba, told the court that Oyelakin committed the offence on Jan. 15 at 4:00 p.m., within Osogbo metropolis.
Fatoba said that the accused allegedly raped the child, who happened to be the last pupil to drop from the school bus.
He said the offence contravened Sections 360 and 218 of the Criminal Code, Cap 34 Vol.11, Laws of Osun, 2003. (NAN)
