Skit maker, Trinityguy remanded in prison for sexualising minor
Oyo State Magistrate Court sitting in Iyaganku, Ibadan, has remanded skit maker, Abdullahi Maruff Adisa, popularly known as Trinityguy, in prison for allegedly sexualising a minor in his viral skit video.
Nigeria Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi had last week called for the skit maker’s arrest following a trending video of his dangerous pranks.
Oyo State Police Command in a statement on Friday announced that the skit maker and parent of the little girl in the viral video were quizzed by the Command and would appear in court Monday 26 June 2023.
Appearing before the Magistrate counsel to the defendant, Oludare Adebayo urged the court to grant his client bail.
Magistrate PO Adetuyibi while denying the bail application, said the allegation against the skit maker is currently receiving the attention of the state Ministry of Justice.
The court, however, ordered that the parents of the little girl in the video be remanded alongside Trinityguy till the next sitting.
Magistrate Adetuyibi therefore adjourned till July 11.
Reacting to this, Nollywood actor, Adeniyi Johnson pleaded on behalf of the embattled skit maker, praying the Nigerian Police to tamper justice with mercy.
Reacting to the development in a post on his Instagram page, he wrote: “Dear Nigeria police force and every other related agency, many of us agree that our brother did what is wrong and absurd.
“All I’m pleading for is to TAMPER JUSTICE WITH MERCY. please @iamtrinityguy is a young man looking for what to eat legally but he incidentally fell on the wrong side of the law.
“Please be merciful as I know he has learnt already @nigerianpoliceforce.”
