Adeniyi alleged that the defendant indecently assaulted a 10-year-old girl by placing her on his laps with intent to ejaculate thereby conducting himself in a manner likely to cause breach of peace.
Counsel to the defendant, Mr Olayinka Adelusi, urged the court to grant his client bail and promised that the defendant would not jump bail.
The Magistrate, Dolapo Babalogbon, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum and adjourned to March 13.
