Ogun State Man To Be Jailed For 2 Years For Raping 8-Year-Old Girl

Musa Anifowose, 20-year-old man, has been sentenced to two years imprisonment by an Ogun State Magistrate after he was caught raping a little girl of 8-years.

The prosecutor, Bukola Abolade, said that Musa committed the crime on May 1, 2020, around 9am at Number 6 Agbaje street in Sabo, Ijebu Ode in the state.

The prosecutor told the court that Musa raped the minor when her mother sent her on an errand.

The victim’s mother observed bloodstains on her daughter’s legs, cloth and private parts when she returned.

On inquiry, the victim said it was Musa who violated her. She said he took her to an abandoned building close to an Abattoir where he violated her.

“When the victim got home, her mother noticed blood stains on her clothe. Upon enquiry, she told her mother what happened between her and the defendant,” the prosecutor said

Medical examination proved that the victim had been penetrated.

The suspect when cross-examined, confessed to committing the crime.

The presiding magistrate, Olusegun Abiodun, thereafter sentenced him to two years’ imprisonment at the Oba Correctional Centre without an option of fine.
