He was arraigned on a two-count charge of indecent treatment of a child and sexual assault.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.

The charge was read to the defendant in English and was interpreted to him in Hausa Language.

Justice Abiola Soladoye ordered the remand of Adamu pending hearing of his bail application.

The judge held that the defendant should be kept at the Kirikiri Custodial Centre.

The judge adjourned the case until 9th May, 2023, for hearing of the bail application.

Prosecution counsel, Ms Abimbola Abolade, told the court that the defendant committed the offences on June 25, 2021, on Atan Road, Surulere, Lagos.

The prosecutor said that the alleged offences contravened Sections 135 and 263 (1)(2) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015
