Court Jails Father For Life For Sexually Assaulting his Three Daughters

A Lagos Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court, sitting in Ikeja, has sentenced one, Ademola Oladimeji, to four times life imprisonment for sexual rascality and notorious in assaulting his minor children.

Justice Abiola Soladoye delivered the judgement after Oladimeji was found guilty of sexually assaulting three children ages five, seven and nine.

Delivering the judgment, Justice Soladoye, held that the evidences of the respective prosecution witnesses were believable and truthful.

Soladoye, however, said their evidences established the offence of sexual assault by penetration and not defilement.

According to her, the evidences of the three survivors were corroborated with the investigative police officer and their mother’s.

She said: “Upon careful review of the evidence before the court, the children did not say their father inserted his penis into their ‘bumbum’, they only said he touched their ‘bumbum’.

“I observed the three of them. They did not lie against their father, they did not say he used his penis, he only used his fingers.

“The children gave an unshaken testimonies on how their father fiddle with their innocence multiple times by inserting his fingers into their vaginas.

“The wife of the defendant, in her testimony, said the children complained of pain in their private parts and she was later informed at the Mirabel Medical Centre that the children had been sexually assaulted.”

The judge added that the defendant was desperate to distant himself from the allegation by denying the offences.

According to her: “To the mind of this court, I do not believe his narration though he denied fiddling his daughters but his testimony did not add up.

“His narration showed how desperate he was to get out of the charges brought against him by his own children.

“The court holds that there was penetration as oral and documentary evidence before the court pointed to the fact that the defendant messed around with the purity of his three children.”

Soladoye said the conduct of the defendant was despicable, morally corrupt and incestuous and against the order of nature.

The judge, who said the prosecution failed to establish the three-count charge bordering on defilement, thereafter changed it to sexual assault by penetration and convicted him on each of the counts.

She also convicted Oladimeji of the fourth count charge of sexual assault by penetration and sentenced him to life imprisonment on each count.

The sentence, the judge held, would run concurrently.

Soladoye said the name of the convict be registered in the Lagos State Sexual Offences Register.

The state counsel, Mrs Olufunke Adegoke called five witnesses in proof of her case, while the convict testified as a sole witness.
