Man jailed 14 years in Lagos for defiling neigbour’s daughter

This sexual molestation of young children is becoming too much. Parents please be more vigilant. An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court today sentenced a 25 year old unemployed man named Ogboru Godspower, to 14 years in jail for defiling a 13-year-old daughter of his neighbour in Ikorodu.

The prosecutor, Jimah Iseghede, told the court that the grave offence was committed on Aug. 8 at the rapist's residence. The young girl was going to take her bath when the accused waylaid her, removed her towel & defiled her according to a report by Vanguard.

A neighbour who saw the accused in the act quickly alerted other neighbours and he was arrested.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Tajudeen Elias, sentenced the rapist after he pleaded guilty to the offence. He said, 'The accused is hereby sentenced to 14 years imprisonment to serve as deterrent to others and to reform him to be a law abiding citizen.'
