Court Jails Man For Life For Defiling Three Daughters

A man, Ademola Oladimeji, has been sentenced to life imprisonment for sexually assaulting his three children.

The decision of the court was commended by the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA) in a statement it posted on its verified X handle @LSdsva, on Monday.

The man was sentenced to three concurrent life imprisonment sentences by Justice Abiola Sholadoye of the Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court on Monday.

The agency, while reacting to the Monday judgment, stated that justice had been served.

The mother of the children was said to have reported the case to the agency.

“The matter was reported to DSVA after the mother noted that the children, aged five, seven and nine, complained about pain in their private parts.

“They were then referred to Mirabel Centre for medical evaluation. The medical report confirmed that all the girls had been sexually assaulted.

“We commend the family of the survivors even as we reiterate the Lagos State’s zero tolerance stance and insist that there is help for survivors,” it stated.

According to DSVA, the wheel of justice is turning, and perpetrators of the crimes will be held accountable for their actions.

It was reported that the prosecution had five witnesses including the three girls, their mother and the investigating police officer.

The judge held that the testimonies of prosecution witnesses were credible while the defendant’s testimony did not add up as he was trying to distance himself from the allegations.

The judge held that the children were indeed sexually assaulted by penetration and that prosecution proved beyond reasonable doubt that the convict committed the offence.

The judge added that the conviction will deter other people like him from committing a similar crime in future.
