An Ibadan Magistrate Court in Oyo State has ordered the remand of popular skit maker, Abdullahi Maruff Adisa, aka Trinity Guy, in prison for allegedly sexualising a minor in a skit..
The Oyo state police command arraigned the comedian in court on Monday, Jue 26 after receiving “several complaints against him, and many groups, NGOs, and CLOs are interested in the case”.
The court also arraigned Isiaka Ahmed, 40, and his wife, Rofiat, 29, who are parents of the victim on two-count charge of conspiracy and sexual abuse and exploitation alongside the skit maker.
The Magistrate, P.O. Adetuyibi, while denying the bail application, stated that the allegation against the Skit maker is currently receiving attention of the state Ministry of Justice.
Adetuyibi remanded the three defendants in Agodi correctional facility, Ibadan, pending July 11 when the case would come up for mention.
Trinity Guy reported to the state police command last week for questioning regarding the allegation.
“Abdullahi Maruf Adisa AKA Trinity reported at the Oyo State Police Command at exactly 1000hrs today. Recall he was invited yesterday over a video depicting the sexualization of a female minor. Updates would follow in sequence, please,” Police spokesperson said.
“In addition, the Skit Maker during the course of the interview provided shocking revelations about the involvement of the minor’s parents before, during and after the production.
“He particularly emphasized that the consent of both parents was sought before uploading the skit on the internet. Consequent on the above, Isiaka Ahmed and his wife, Rofiat, both biological parents of the minor are presently being quizzed by the gender and juvenile related offences desk of the SCID alongside Trinity,” Police said on Friday.
