Court Jails Man, 25, For Defiling 13-Year-Old Neighbour

An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court has sentenced a 25-year-old man, Ogboru Godspower, to 14 years imprisonment for defiling a 13-year-old daughter of his neighbour. The Chief Magistrate, Tajudeen Elias, sentenced Godspower after he pleaded guilty to the offence. The convict was arraigned on Aug. 14 on a one-count charge of defilement. The prosecutor, Jimah Iseghede, had told the court that the offence was committed on Aug. 8 at Godspower’s residence. Iseghede said that the victim was going to take her bath when the accused pulled her towel off and defiled her. A neighbour who caught the accused in the act alerted the police.
