A Family Court sitting at Iyaganku, Ibadan, Oyo State, on Monday, ordered the remand of a skit maker, Maruf Abdullahi, aka Trinity Guy, to the Agodi Correctional Centre for alleged sexual exploitation of a 10-year-old girl in a trending video clip.

The prankster was remanded in prison custody till Tuesday, July 11 when the case would come up for mention.

The court also remanded the minor’s parents, Isiaka Ahmed, 40, and his wife, Rofiat, 29, who were arraigned on two counts of conspiracy and sexual abuse and exploitation alongside the prankster.

The Magistrate, P.O. Adetuyibi did not take the defendants’ plea for want of jurisdiction, saying the case file had been filed and duplicated at the state Ministry of Justice, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Reacting to the development, Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi, using his verified Instagram page, @realyomifabiyi, said the prankster should be cautioned and advised on proper procedures.

“He sought parental consent; he never exposed his sexual organ to the child; he never sought to derive sexual pleasure at any time, and it was a skit/prank.

“All we want is a safer society for our children and ourselves. Intentions are what both the law and universe judge in every seen and unseen action,” his statement read in part.
