A 26-year-old Muslim cleric, Ovie Ejebor, who had anal sex with a 16-year-old boy, was on Tuesday remanded in a correctional centre by a Badagry magistrates’ court in Lagos.

Earlier, the prosecutor, ASP Akpan Nko, told the court that the accused committed the offence on December 15, 2022, at No 108, Kazeem Street, Ijyana-Cele, Ajangbadi area of Lagos.

He said, “The defendant who claims to be a Muslim cleric took the 16-year-old boy inside his house before assaulting him.”

The magistrate adjourned the case to April 25. (NAN)
