Justice may have come the way of a 12-year old girl, who was brutally defiled and injured by his captor, Uchenna Izuka, between 2018 and 2019 in Ajegunle area of Lagos State.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Lagos Special Offences Court, Ikeja, found Izuka guilty and sentenced him to 15 years imprisonment for defiling a 12-year-old girl without an option of fine for the offence.
Justice Taiwo held that the prosecution succeeded in proving the charge against the convict, noting that the testimony of the survivor is cogent. The Judge also upheld the medical examination report, adding that it showed the absence of the hymen.
“The survivor testified that the defendant defiled her sometimes in 2018 and 2019. The defendant dragged the survivor into his room and had sex with her. On the second occasion, she was bleeding, but the defendant used tissue paper to clean her up.”
“She said she was a virgin before the incident and that her father took her to the hospital for a check-up when he saw that she was walking with difficulty. The defendant denied that he committed the offence.”
“It was in the view of the Court that it was an afterthought as the defendant admitted to having called the survivor into his room and given her money.”
“In light of the evidence before the Court, I hereby find the defendant guilty as charged. The defendant is hereby sentenced to 15 years imprisonment without an option of fine,” the Court held.
The prosecuting counsel, Mrs. Omowumi Bajulaye-Bishi, had told the Court that the defendant committed the offence sometime in January 2019, in Ajegunle.
His offence was contrary to Section 137 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
The convict was taken to the Correctional Centre at Kirikiri town, Lagos, where he will spent the 15 years over the dastardly act as was pronounced by the Court.
