Four commercial sex workers, Glory David, Akere Bright, Valria Isaac and Ngozi Okoro, have dragged a 25-year-old man, Oluwafemi Damilola, before a Chief Magistrate Court in Ondo town for allegedly defrauding them of N45,000.

 

 

Ondo-state owned newspaper reported on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, that the police brought Damilola before the court for sending the women a fake alert after having sex with them.

 

 

 

According to the prosecutor, the defendant was said to have committed the offence in October 2022 at Sabo Road Ondo.

The charge sheet read: “That you, Oluwafemi Damilola, sometimes in October 2022 at Sabo Road Ondo in the Ondo Magisterial District did conduct yourself in a manner likely to cause the breach of peace by fraudulently having carnal knowledge of Glory David, Valria Isaac, Akere Bright and Ngozi Okoro.

 

 

 

“That you, Oluwafemi Damilola on the same date, time and place in the aforementioned magisterial district did indecently assault Glory David, Valria Isaac, Akere Bright and Ngozi Okoro by fraudulently and unlawfully having carnal knowledge of them with the pretence of sending them the sum of N45,000 which you failed to do so but willingly send them fake alert with aim of defrauding them sexually and thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Sections 249 and 360 of the Criminal Code Cap 37 Volume 1 law of Ondo State of Nigeria, 2006,”

The police prosecutor, Mr Akao Moremi, notified the court that he would be calling five witnesses to testify in the case. He, therefore, applied for a date to enable him to study the case file.

 

 

 

The defendant’s counsel, Mr S. A Iluyemi said there is a move of settlement. He prayed the court to release the defendant to him and promised that the defendant would pay the complainants money before the next day of adjournment.

Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Charity Adeyanju, granted the application made by the defendant’s counsel and ordered that the money be paid to the complaints before the next day of adjournment.

 

 

 

Adeyanju added that the court’s orderly must confirm the payment and report back to court and adjourned the case till the end of June, 2023, for the final report of settlement.
