A high Court sitting in Abeokuta has sentenced a 48–year-old man to fourteen years imprisonment with hard labour for allegedly having unlawful canal knowledge of an 11-year old girl in Ogun State, Nigeria.
The suspect committed the offence at Owode Egba, December 11, 2018. He pleaded guilty to the charge leveled against him.
The prosecutor, Adisa Adewale, has told the Court that, the girl who was hawking fufu after she has returned from school was called by the convict to come inside his house.
According to the prosecutor, the convict asked the girl to come inside his house, but the girl refused on the ground that her mother instructed her not to go into anyone’s home. The convict then dragged the girl into his house and sexually abused her, where her blood was gushing out of her private part.
The prosecutor also said that the convict threatened the girl that she would die if she tells anyone of what transpired between them.
The State Chief Judge found the convict guilt of the offence.
