LAGOS COURT SENTENCES MAN TO 50 YEARS IMPRISONMENT FOR DEFILING 8-YEAR OLD GIRL
The Lagos State Sexual Offences Court, Ikeja on Monday, sentenced one Okechukwu Onyeakazi to 50 Years imprisonment for defiling 8- year old minor in Lagos.
Justice S. Nwaka-Gbagi delivered the Judgement in the charge No.ID/3901C/2017 between the State of Lagos vs Okechukwu Onyeakazi.
The defendant who pleaded guilty reportedly defiled the minor by putting his fingers into her bumbum and also inserted his penis into her vagina on a different occasion.
The convict was earlier arrested by the Police and arraigned on a – one – count charge of defilement which contravenes the Criminal Justice Law of Lagos State.
The Prosecuting Counsel, Adebayo Haroun , had told the court during the trial that the convict committed the offence in 2017 at Shogunle, area of Lagos State.
Haroun, however, urged the court to sentence the defendant accordingly having found him guilty of the charges against him.
Delivering judgement on the case, Justice S. Nwaka, held that the evidences and the two witnesses presented before the court by the prosecution were tenable and found the convict guilty as charged.
