Man bags two years in prison for raping 8-year-old girl

An Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court in Ogun State on Wednesday sentenced a 21-year-old man, Musa Anifowose, to two years in the correctional centre for raping an eight-year-old girl.

Anifowose, who resides at No. 2, Isale Iyemule, Ijebu Ode, was sentenced on a one-count charge of sexual abuse.

The Magistrate, I.O Abudu, said that all the evidence tendered in court had convinced the court beyond a reasonable doubt that the convict was guilty of the offense.

She sentenced Anifowose to two-year imprisonment without an option of fine.

The magistrate also ordered that the convict be taken to the Oba correctional center to serve his jail term, NAN reports.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp Bukola Abolade, told the court that the convict committed the offense on May 1 at about 9:00 am, at No. 6, Agbaje Street, Sabo area of Ijebu-Ode.

Abolade said that the convict had carnal knowledge of the girl when she was sent on an errand by her mother.

She said that the convict accosted the girl and forcefully took her to an abandoned building beside Sabo abattoir and had carnal knowledge of her.

“When she got home, the mother noticed blood stains on her cloth and upon inquiry, she told her mother what happened between her and the convict,” she said
