Man bags 25 years imprisonment for raping 11-yr-old girl in Ogun





Court sentences man to 25 years imprisonment for raping 11-year-old girl

An Abeokuta High Court on Wednesday sentenced a 36-year-old man, Ugochukwu Obiakor, to 25 years imprisonment for raping an 11-year- old girl

Obiakor, who had pleaded not guilty to a one-count charge, was convicted for forcefully having sexual intercourse with the 11-year-old.

Delivering her judgment, the Chief Judge of Ogun, Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu, held that all evidence presented before the court by the prosecution was tenable and found the convict guilty as charged.

Dipeolu consequently sentenced Obiakor to 25 years imprisonment with hard labour.

The prosecution counsel and Director of Legal Drafting in the state, Mr James Mafe, had earlier told the court during trial that the convict committed the offence on Sept. 4, 2017, at Omu- Aleku Village in Mowe area of Ogun.

Mafe said the convict forcefully had sexual intercourse with the 11-year-old girl while the medical results conducted revealed that the victim’s hymen and vagina laceration was broken.

He said the victim was in her mother’s shop when the convict came to make purchases.

The prosecutor said the convict later came back when the mother left the shop.

He said Obiakor told the girl that her mother was owing him money, adding he wanted to collect the sum.

The prosecutor said the convict opened the shop’s burglary-proof railings and dragged the victim to an uncompleted building beside the shop where he raped her.

He said the offence committed contravened Section 32 of the Child Rights Law of Ogun, 2006.
