The police prosecutor, Inspector Sunday Osanyintuyi, said that the accused person unlawfully and indecently assaulted a 19-year-old girl (names withheld) by having sexual intercourse with her beside his house, after threatening her.

The prosecutor said that the accused person intimidated the girl with the voice note on a Glo line number 07055914940 and threatened to kill her if she disclosed what transpired between them.

The accused person pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge levelled against him.

The offence contravened Sections 86 and 360 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2002.

Owolawi, therefore, ordered for the remand of the accused person in Ile-Ife prison, pending the consideration of his bail application.
