An Ibadan Chief Magistrate’s Court sitting in Iyaganku on Tuesday discharged two corps members charged with committing sodomy on one of their students.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Kehinde Durosaro-Tijani, said the two accused, Daniel O’ Tega and Sulaiman Abari, were discharged but not on merit.
Durosaro-Tijani said: “this is based on the withdrawal letter and affidavit deposed to by the father of the victim.”
This followed the withdrawal of the case by the victim’s parents, Alhaji Hammed Sulaimon and Kafilat.
Sulaimon, in the affidavit, said he had forgiven the accused as Sulaiman’s father, Mr Dauda Abari and O’Tega’s guardian, Mr Michael Edewhosa, intervened in the matter.
Sulaiman, a graduate of Lagos State University, Ojo, and O’tega were serving at St. Louis Secondary School 2, Molete, Ibadan.
The two were arraigned on a three-count charge of conspiracy, procuring as well as getting hold of their victim.
