The little girl was later persuaded to open up; she revealed to her parents what happened and how Pa Olaiya defiled her by penetrating her private part.
The matter was reported to the Police in the area and he was arrested. Pa Plays was later transferred to the Gender Section of the Command in Ikeja for interrogation and he admitted to have molested the girl.
He was subsequently charged before the Ogba Magistrates Court for defilement which attracts life imprisonment if he is tried and found guilty.

The matter was adjourned till 15th September, 2020, for report of the DPP’s advice to be available while the trial may be transferred to the High Court if the DPP finds Pa Olaiya culpable and recommends his trial for defilement.
