The complainant made the request during the proceeding at Ikeja Sexual Offence and Domestic Violence Court on Thursday via a “Letter of withdrawal” According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)
In the letter, which was read in the court by Justice Abiola Soladoye, the complainant attributed her decision to the “intervention of family members” and for the sake of her integrity.
However, Mr. Akin George, a Deputy-Director in the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) and lead state prosecutor, however, opposed the complainant’s request.
After listening to the submissions of the prosecution and defense, Justice Soladoye said that the court would continue with proceedings, and that bail would not be granted to the defendants because the court had already delivered a ruling denying them bail.
The case was adjourned to June 18 for the continuation of trial.
