Gateman Sentenced To Life Imprisonment For Defiling Employer’s Children

An Ikeja S3xual Offences and Domestic Violence Court, on Thursday, declared a gateman Happiness Sunday, a s3xual terrorist while sentencing him to triple life imprisonment for s3xually assaulting his employer’s children, aged 10 and eight.

Justice Abiola Soladoye sentenced Sunday to life imprisonment on each of three counts bordering on defilement and s3xual assault by penetration brought against him by the Lagos State Government.

Soladoye held that the prosecution sufficiently proved the charges against the convict.

“The defendant started assaulting the children, and the older child reported to his grandmother to caution him as he was touching the sister inappropriately.

“When the female child was asked, she informed the grandma that the defendant was also touching her brother inappropriately.

“The matter was reported to the CeCe Yara Foundation and subsequently to the police.

“The defendant denied touching the children, but he is a liar,” she held.

The judge held that the prosecution proved the ingredients of defilement and s3xual assault by penetration under Sections 137 and 261 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State.

According to her, the convict was bisexual, desperate and wicked.

“The defendant is a s3xual terrorist who ravished children, a disloyal worker, egoistic, a terrible person whose s3xual perversion is unacceptable.

“His actions are beastly, and he should be locked away for life because his conduct is utterly disgraceful,” she said.

She added that the convict should have his name in the Lagos State S3xual Offences Register.

The judge urged parents to watch over their children properly.

The state counsel, Mrs Olufunke Adegoke, presented four witnesses and tendered three exhibits during the trial while the convict testified as sole witness in his defence.

Lagos State Government said the convict committed the offences in 2020 in Magodo, Lagos State.
