An Ignosere High Court of Lagos state, today, convicted and sentenced a 28-year-old man, Kingsley Inyang, to life imprisonment for defiling a 12-year-old girl.

Justice Sedoten Ogunsanya convicted and found him guilty of defiling the girl, a junior secondary school (JSS) two pupil, contrary to Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

During his trial which lasted for a year and three months, Justice Ogunsanya held that the Lagos State prosecution team led by Mr Adebayo Haroun proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.

The judge found that Inyang’s defence was inconsistent with the testimony of his girlfriend, who stated that on the day of the incident, he spent only 15 minutes with her, contrary to Inyang’s claim that he was with her the whole day.
Inyang, at 16, Adetunde Arogundade Street, Fagba, a Lagos suburb, was arraigned on March 3, 2017.

According to the prosecution, he defiled the girl, who is his church member, in his home on July 26, 2015.

He had pleaded not guilty and was admitted to bail.

During the trial, the girl told the court that the first time Inyang defiled her was on a Sunday evening after a fellowship service, following which he threatened to assault her if she told anyone.

Three days later, as she and her younger brother passed his house on their way home from bible study, he beckoned on her again.

“He sent my brother outside and forced me to make love to him and said that I should not let anybody know, otherwise he was going to beat me,” she said.
