On-air personality, Uche Igwe popularly known as Darksam, has been rearraigned before a Chief Magistrates’ court, Yaba, for allegedly sharing the sex video of a Chrisland Schools pupil.

It will be recalled that earlier in May,  the Nigeria Police Force arraigned the 40-year old defendant who works with Metro FM, Lagos state, on a two-count charge of cyberstalking and breach of peace, which he pleaded not guilty to.

The  presiding Chief Magistrate, Adeola Adedayo, had also admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N10 million with three sureties in like sum.

However, the Lagos State government, on Tuesday July 25, through its counsel, Omolola Saliu, re-arraigned the defendant on a fresh one-count charge, which he pleaded not guilty to.

The new charge accused Mr Igwe of distributing via his twitter handle on April 18, the sex video of some Chrisland who were in Dubai for a World Schools Games.

The offense is said to be contrary to Section 23(2) of the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency Law, 2021.

Magistrate Adedayo thereafter adjourned trial  till September 28, 2022.
