Man Gets Life Sentence For Defiling Daughter


A Lagos State Sexual Offences & Domestic Violence Court Sentenced, Oluwafemi Asekeji to Life Imprisonment for Defiling his 12 Year Old Daughter.

His name will be registered in the Sexual Offenders Register as maintained by Lagos State.

Justice Abiola Soladoye, in her judgment, also held that the prosecution had proven the three legs of the charge of defilement against Asekeji.

Soladoye said that the convict’s act of having unlawful sexual intercourse with his own biological child was against the law of nature.

She said it was a case of incest which should never be heard of.

According to her, the father of the convict, who is 75 years old, testified against him that he defiled his granddaughter, by having unlawful sexual intercourse with her. The judge said: “The survivor, in her testimony, told the court that she was 14 years old but her father defiled her when she was 12 years old.

“She testified that she was at home with her father, who was drunk on June 11, 2020 and he instructed her to enter the room and lie on the bed. “She told this court that her father asked her to take off her clothes and then he defiled her. “She said and I quote ‘… he took videos of me and threatened to show the video to people if I tell anybody what has happened.”

The court held that the survivor testified that her father instructed her to drink salt water after he had defiled her. The judge said the survivor told the court that she could not tell anyone earlier because the convict had threatened to kill her if she told anyone that he had been sexually abusing her before the last incident of June 11, 2020. The judge also held that the medical report revealed that the survivor had been defiled as the report showed the hymen had been broken.

The prosecution called five witnesses while the convict testified as a sole witness.

“Circumstantial evidence and also medical report, evidence of the grandmother, the evidence of the grandfather and evidence of her uncle all points to the convict.

“Oluwafemi Asekeji, you have been found guilty as charged and you are hereby sentenced to life imprisonment.”
