…for defilement of neighbour’s children

The Lagos State Sexual Offences & Domestic Violence Court has sentenced Mr Paul Ndedigwe to Double Life Imprisonment for the defilement of his neighbour’s two children.

Both sentences are to run concurrently.

Ndedigwe’s name will be registered in the Sexual Offenders Register as maintained by Lagos State, says DSVA.

Justice Abiola Soladoye of the Lagos State Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court, Ikeja, on Tuesday, sentenced a 45-year-old man, Paul Ndedigwe, to double life imprisonment for defiling his neighbour’s two children.

In her ruling, the judge held that the prosecution proved two of the three counts brought against the defendant.

She described Ndedigwe as rough, irresponsible and a destiny destroyer.

According to her, the convict had sexual intercourse with the minors at the same time and in the presence of each other.

“The evidence of prosecution witnesses was corroborated, truthful and unshaken. The defendant is hereby found guilty on count one and sentenced to life imprisonment. He is also found guilty on count two and sentenced to life imprisonment.”

The judge ordered that the sentencing run concurrently and the convict’s name be put in the Lagos State Sexual Offences Register.

The Lagos State counsel, Mrs. Olufunke Adegoke, presented three witnesses during the trial while the convict testified solely for defence.

Adegoke said the convict committed to offence on November 19, 2021, on Ifelodun Street, Amukoko, Lagos State.
