Lagos Court Sentences Man To Life Imprisonment For Raping His 3 Children

Published

Samuel Ademola Oladimeji is sentenced to three concurrent life sentences in jail by the Lagos High Court for the crime of sexual assault by penetration of his three children.

His name will be added to the Lagos State-maintained Sexual Offenders Register.

The prosecution presented five witnesses in person, including the mother of the three girls who had been sexually molested and the Investigating Police Officer (IPO) from the Family Support Unit of the Ilupeju Police Station, according to Special Offenses Court Judge Hon. Justice Sholadoye.

The mother noticed that the kids complained of pain in their private areas, so she reported the issue to Lagos DSVA. After that, they were sent to the Mirabel Center for a medical assessment, where it was confirmed in the medical report that each girl had experienced sexual assault.

The judge ruled that the prosecution’s witnesses’ testimony was unquestionable, but that the defendant’s testimony was insufficient since he was only attempting to disassociate himself from the accusations.

The court determined that the prosecution had satisfactorily met its burden of establishing beyond a reasonable doubt that the offense had been committed and that the children had in fact been sexually assaulted by penetration.

After that, he received three concurrent life sentences in prison. Additionally, Justice Sholadoye mandated that the convict’s name be added to the Lagos State Sexual Offenses Register.

Using this platform, we express our gratitude to the survivors’ families for continuing the cause while reiterating the state’s zero-tolerance policy and our demand that survivors receive assistance.
