The police on Tuesday arraigned a 21-year-old teacher, Matthew Sodake, at an Ota Magistrates’ Court for allegedly having oral sex with a 14-year old student.
The accused, whose address is unknown, is facing alleged charge of assault.
The prosecutor, Chudu Gbesi, told the court that the accused committed the offence on July 12 at about 8.00 p.m. at Ambassador Star Comprehensive Secondary School, Answer, Otta in Ogun.
Mr. Gbesi told the court that the accused, a teacher in the school, lured the 14-year-old student into the one of the classrooms and had oral sex with him.
He said the offence contravened Section 216 of the Criminal Code Laws of Ogun, 2006.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The Senior Magistrate, S.O Banwo, granted the accused bail in the sum of N100, 000 with two sureties in like sum.
Banwo said the sureties must be residents within the court’s jurisdiction and should be gainfully employed.
He also ordered the sureties to swear to an affidavit of means and show evidence of tax payment to Ogun Government.
The magistrate adjourned the case to Aug. 12, for hearing.(NAN)
