35-Year Old Man Bags Life Imprisonment For Raping A 2-Year Old In Ogun

Justice Abiodun Akinyemi of an Ogun State High Court sitting in Isabo, Abeokuta, has sentenced a 35-year-old man, Adekunle Olalere, to life imprisonment for defiling a two-year-old girl.

The Assistant Chief State Counsel, Mrs Oluyemisi Aruleba, had told the court during the trial that Olalere committed the offence on March 22, 2017, at No. 18 Bashorun Street, off Unity Road, Olowotedo area of Mowe. According to Aruleba, the victim’s mother lived with the convict’s wife where she helped her to sell foodstuffs and other items. It was during the period that the convict forcefully had sex with the victim.

“The victim’s mother met her two-year-old daughter crying and noticed that she was not walking properly. She checked her daughter’s private parts and noticed that they were swollen.

She took the child to the hospital, where it was confirmed that there was presence of sperm cells in her private parts and also revealed that the child had been sexually abused by the convict.” Aruleba said

Aruleba maintained that the offence contravened Section 32 of the Child Right Law of Ogun State, 2006.

The convict denied the allegation and pleaded not guilty.

The presiding judge ruled that the evidence brought forward by the prosecution team were overwhelming and found the convict guilty as charged.

“Based on the evidence, I find and hold that the convict had sexual intercourse with the child and is guilty as charged,” Akinyemi said.

The judge then sentenced Olalere to life imprisonment.
