A popular Ibadan-based skit maker, Abdullahi Maruff Adisa, otherwise known as Trinity Guy, has been sent to prison after he was arraigned on Monday by the Oyo State Command of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

The jester was accused of sexualising a minor in one of his skits posted on the internet, which attracted condemnations from various persons.

He was invited by the police last week over the issue after the spokesman of the police, Mr Olumuyiwa Adejobi, expressed disgust over his skits.

Over the weekend, he appeared before the police in Oyo State and was charged to a Magistrate Court sitting in Ibadan, the state capital, today.

He claimed to have sought the consent of the parent of the 10-year-old child before making the video on December 17, 2022, in the Kuolaa area of Ibadan, Oyo State.

When the case came up on Monday, the Magistrate, Mrs P.O. Adetuyibi, ordered the remand of Trinity Guy in the Agodi correctional facility pending when the matter would come up for mention on July 11, 2023.

He is to remain in Agodi prison with the parents of the child, Mr Isiaka Ahmed, who is 40, and his wife, Rofiat, who is 29. The parents were accused of conspiracy and sexual abuse, and exploitation.

According to the Prosecution Counsel, Inspector Oluwakemi Arowosaye, the offences allegedly committed by the trio are contrary to Section 35 (1) and punishable under Section 35 (2) of Oyo State Child Rights Law, 2006, adding that they also contravened Section 516 of the Criminal Code Laws of Oyo State, 2000, and could lead to 15 years behind bars if found guilty.
