Adetuyibi ordered the police to send the case to the Oyo State Directorate of Public Prosecution for legal advice.

She adjourned the matter until July 20, for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp Oluwakemi Arowosaye told the court that the boy resides with his parents at No 4, Salawu Street, Ibadan.

The offence, she said, contravenes the provisions of Section 34 of the Child’s Right Law of 2006.

The baby has been taken by the Oyo State Child Welfare Department of the Ministry for Women Affairs.
