The police on Friday arraigned a teenager, Joshua Olayiwola before a Family Court sitting in Iyaganku, Ibadan, for allegedly defiling an eight-year-old neighbour’s daughter.

The police charged Olayiwola with defilement.

The Magistrate, Mrs S. A. Adesina however  did not take Olayiwola’s plea due to lack of jurisdiction.

She ordered that the defendant should be remanded in Abolongo Correctional facility, Oyo Town.
