Popular Nigerian actor, Adeniyi Johnson has pleaded on behalf of Ibadan-based skit maker, Abdullahi Maruf, better known as Trinity Guy.
The skit maker was grilled by the police last week over a disturbing skit in which he sexualized a minor.
After honouring the Oyo state Police’s invitation on Friday morning, June 24, he was charged to court today, Monday, June 26.
A family court sitting at Iyaganku, Ibadan ordered Trinity Guy’s remand to Agodi correctional facility over alleged sexual exploitation of the 10-year-old girl as well as her parents on two-count charge of conspiracy and sexual abuse and exploitation alongside the skit maker.
Reacting to the report, Adeniyi Johnson took to Instagram to plead, asking that all agencies involved temper justice with mercy. He added that although what the skitmaker did is wrong, he has learnt his lessons. He wrote:
“Dear Nigerian police force and every other related agencies!!! many of us agree that our brother did what is wrong and absurd!! All I am pleading for is to TEMPER JUSTICE WITH MERCY. please @iamtrinityguy is a young man looking for what to eat legally but he incidentally fell on the wrong side of the law!!!
Please be merciful as I know he has learnt already @nigerianpoliceforce.”
