A 23-year-old businessman, David Idoko, on Wednesday appeared before a Wuse Zone 6 Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Abuja, for allegedly forcing a five-year-old boy to perform oral sex on him.
Mr Idoko, who resides opposite ECWA Church, Karmo, Abuja, is facing one-count charge of unnatural offence.
The prosecutor, Fidelis Ogbobe, told the court that one Maria Agbo, mother of the boy with same address reported the case at Karmo Divisional Police Headquarters, FCT, Abuja, on March 29.
Mr Ogbobe said Mrs Agbo reported how Idoko lured the boy to his room at about 12pm, forcing his manhood into his mouth.
The prosecutor further alleged that when Agbo did not see her son, she went looking for him and found him vomiting in the defendant’s room, while the defendant was stark naked.
He said during police investigation, the defendant confessed to have committed the offence.
Ogbobe said that the offence contravened Section 284 of the Penal Code.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The magistrate, Njideka Nwosu-Iheme, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N500,000 and one surety in like sum.
Mrs Nwosu-Iheme adjourned the case until January 16 for mention.
