27-year-old rapist jailed 10 years in Lagos

Ogu said the accused was reportedly apprehended by passers-by, who took him to the police station.

A 27-year-old bricklayer, Samuel Adedeji, is to spend the next 10 years in jail for raping a 20-year-old girl at knife-point, an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court ruled on Wednesday.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Taiwo Akanni, handed down the verdict after he pleaded guilty to the charge.

She ruled:“The accused is hereby sentenced 10 years imprisonment without an option of fine. This will serve as a deterrent to others.”

The accused, who resides at Okobo Street, off Afia Road, Badagry, was arraigned for rape.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Clifford Ogu told the court that the offence was committed on Feb. 8 at Nkem Igborosun Street, Badagry.

Ogu said the accused went to collect his money from his friend who lives in the same compound with the complainant, the 20-year-old girl.

“The accused did not meet his friend at home, however, saw the complainant who tied a wrapper sweeping.’’

Ogu said the accused brought out a knife and ordered the girl to move to her room or be killed.

“The accused followed the girl to her room, shut the door and raped her at knife-point.

“The accused was about leaving the compound when the girl shouted for help,” he said.

Ogu said  the accused was apprehended by passers-by, who took him to the police station.

The offence contravened Section 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 which stipulates life imprisonment.
