'Ashawo' Drag Customer To Court In Ondo

A middle age man, Oluwafemi Damilola, has been dragged before the Ondo Chief Magistrate Court for having sex with four ladies without paying them their money, the sum of N45,000.

The police arraigned the 25-year-old man for duping the sex workers; Glory David, Akere Bright, Valria Isaac, and Ngozi Okoro by sending them a fake alert with the aim of defrauding them.

The prosecutor, Akao Moremi, informed the court that the defendant committed the offence in October 2022 at Sabo Road Ondo City.

According to the charge sheet, ”you, Oluwafemi Damilola, sometime 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 who informed the court that he would be calling five witnesses to testify in the case, applied for a date to enable him to study the case file.

But the defendant’s counsel, Mr S. A Iluyemi, informed the court that there is a move of settlement between the defendant and the complainants.

He, however, prayed the court to release his client to him as he (the defendant) will pay the complainants money before the next day of adjournment.

In her ruling, the Chief Magistrate, Mrs Charity Adeyanju, granted the application made by the defendant’s counsel and order 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 the court.

She adjourned the case till June 23, 2023, for the final report of settlement.
