One of the youths arrested in Ondo State by security operatives during the EndSARS protest has given birth in prison custody.
The 18-year-old girl, Kemisola Oguniyi gave birth in Surulere Prison in Ondo West Local Government Area of the state where she was remanded.
Kemisola was arrested alongside three others, Ayodele Bukunmi, Ojo Samuel and Ani Obinna during the EndSARS saga.
They were remanded in prison custody shortly after a violent protest which rocked some parts of the country.
The charges preferred against them before the court were conspiracy to commit the felonies to wit, arson, riotous assembly, stealing and malicious damage.
It was gathered that Kemisola went into labour on June 15, 2021, and gave birth to a baby boy the following day.
Kemisola’s lawyer, Tope Tomekun, in a letter addressed to the Chief Judge of Ondo State, Oluwatoyin Akeredolu, said Kemisola was innocent of the crime preferred against her.
Tomekun emphasized that Kemisola was on her way to the Federal University of Technology Akure, FUTA, to obtain money for her mother’s treatment when she was apprehended by the Nigerian Army who handed her over to the Police for investigation.
He also appealed to the Commissioner of Justice and Attorney-General, Sir Titiloye Charles, to use his powers to discontinue the prosecution of Kemisola and others.
