Under cross examination, by the counsel of the defendant, Adegbite Adeniyi, she admitted that not all that happened in the sex toy shop was contained in the video given to the police as some things have been removed.
In the course of the trial, It was also confirmed by the court that the witness is not a nursing mother, as it was publicized and that her child was twelve years old
