Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Sgt. Salewa Hammed told the court that Aliu, between 2016 and 2019, allegedly took nude pictures of one Bolanle Adegboye and sent it to her friend and husband.
Hammed alleged that Aliu committed the offence while he was dating Adegboye.
The offence, he said, was allegedly committed at Railway Quarters, Aleshinloye, Ibadan.
He said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 24 (1) (b) of the Cyber-crime (Prohibition Prevention) Act 2015 Laws of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The Defence Counsel, Mr Kolawole Adegoke, prayed the court to admit his client to bail on the most liberal terms.
