She also added that when she understood what happened to her daughter, she immediately reported the case to the police who later took over.

The prosecutor, Kunle-Shina Adeyemo presented three witnesses and submitted various items, including the defendant’s statement, images of the victim and defendant, and medical report as evidence.
