Chrisland Schools: Lagos Arraigns OAP For Sharing S*x Tape

Lagos state government has arraigned on-air-personality (OAP), Uche Igwe for allegedly sharing the viral s*x tape involving pupils of Chrisland School.

Gatekeepers News reports that the 40-year-old broadcaster was brought before a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in the state on Monday.

Igwe, who was arraigned on a two-count charge of cyberstalking and breach of peace, pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

Augustine Nwabuisi, prosecution counsel for the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) Panti, told the court that the defendant committed the offences on April 18.

Nwabuisi claimed that the defendant intentionally shared a video of the 10-year-old female student engaging in sexual intercourse with her colleague via his Twitter page.

He added that the defendant allegedly shared the video on the internet for public viewing without the consent of the student’s parents or the school.

According to him, this action, he said, contravened section 24 (1) (a) (b) (i) of the cybercrime (prohibition and prevention) act of 2015, and section 168 (d) of the criminal law of Lagos state, 2015.

Section 24 (1) of the cybercrime (prohibition and prevention) act of 2015 provides for 10 years’ imprisonment for cyberstalking.

Breach of the peace is also punishable with three months jail term under section 168 (d) of the criminal law of Lagos state, 2015.

Adeola Adedayo, the Chief Magistrate in her ruling, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N10 million with three sureties in like sum.

Adedayo ruled that the sureties must submit their National Identification Numbers (NIN) and their Lagos state residents registration agency cards.

She added that one of the sureties must be a landowner, noting that all the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.

According to her, all the sureties must be gainfully employed and have evidence of three years’ tax payment to the Lagos state government.

Adedayo thereafter adjourned the case until June 13 for the continuation of trial.

In April, the s*x tape of the pupils, who were earlier in Dubai for the World Schools Games, had surfaced on Twitter, evoking widespread criticism.

At the time, the state government had warned the public against sharing the video, adding that offenders risk 14 years in jail.
