Court sentences septuagenarian to life imprisonment for defiling minor

Written by on July 9, 2024

A Lagos State Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court has sentenced a 72-year-old security guard, David Jackson, to life imprisonment for defiling a 7-year-old neighbor’s daughter.

Justice Abiola Soladoye sentenced Jackson to life imprisonment after she held that the prosecution had proved the three ingredients of defilement against the convict.

Justice Soladoye, in her judgment, held that the survivor was seven years old at the time of the incident but she was eight years when she testified before the court and identified Jackson as a gateman in one of the houses on her street.
