The actor was charged with six charges of child defilement at his arraignment before the Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court in Lagos. These counts included sexual assault, attempted sexual assault by penetration, and sexual assault by penetration.

The prosecution failed to establish the defendant’s guilt of all the allegations against him beyond a reasonable doubt, according to Justice Taiwo Oluwatoyin, who gave the ruling on Thursday.

The defendant was however found guilty of four of the six counts against him and was sentenced to jail for 16 years
