Father, friend bag life sentence for raping 14-year-old daughter

An Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court on Wednesday sentenced a man, Adewale Ibitoye, to life imprisonment for raping his 14-year-old daughter.

The court also jailed Ibitoye’s friend, Moses Orukpe, who defiled and impregnated the minor.

Justice Abiola Soladoye handed down the verdict after the court found the duo guilty of sexual offences.

The trial judge held that the prosecution had proved the charge of defilement against the convicts beyond any doubt.

Soladoye condemned the barbaric act of the first defendant for having sex with his underage daughter several times and passing her to his friend for a pseudo marriage.

She held, “The victim testified that her father had sexual intercourse with her on several occasions and that her father gave her hand in marriage to the second convict after he visited their house and gifted her father a bottle of gin.
