Ayokunbi Olaniyi, a 22- year-old man, in Ibadan was arraigned today June 23, for allegedly having sex with a pig in April 2nd, 2020.
According to reports, the man works at a pig farm in Elewi – Odo area, Ibadan. There he was caught having sex with one of the pigs.
It is gathered that the suspect was being arraigned on one count of unnatural offence which violates the provisions of Section 214 (2) of the Criminal Code Cap 38, Vol. II , Laws of Oyo State 2000.
However, the man pleaded not guilty to the offence as his counsel pleaded with the court to grant his client bail in the most liberal terms. According to his lawyer, “the owner of the pig has forgiven his client.”
The presiding magistrate, Olaide Amzat, however said: ”If the owner has forgiven the defendant, has God forgiven him or the pig forgiven him? The law must take its cause”.
Ayokunbi Olaniyi was granted bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties..
The case was thereafter adjourned until July 21 for further hearing.
