A Magistrate court sitting in Osogbo, Osun State has ordered the remand of a 35-year-old man, Femi Michael, over alleged fingering of a minor.

Michael was said to have indecently assaulted a 5-year-old minor (name withheld) by inserting his finger in her private part after removing her pants.

The offenses committed, according to the prosecutor, Adeoye were contrary and punishable under section 249(D),359 and 222 of the Criminal Code Cap 34 Vol ll Law of Osun State 2020.

The prosecutor also told the court that the accused person committed the offense on September 27, 2020, at about 8:00 pm at Kolawole Street Esuyale compound Osogbo.

Defense Counsel, K E Nwoke in his moral application urged the court to grant the defendants bail in the most liberal term, saying he would not jump bail but provide credible surety to show his readiness to face trial.

However, the prosecutor opposed the application on the ground that the victim is a minor and the fact that allegation is rampant in society.

In his ruling, the presiding Magistrate, Abayomi Ajala ordered that the accused person be remanded in Ilesa correctional centre and adjourned the matter till October 16 for ruling on bail.
