Court Remands Man, 35, In Prison Over Alleged Rape Of Minor In Ekiti
Justice Dele Omotoso of Ado-Ekiti High Court has sentenced one Olowo Ismaila to 14 years imprisonment for raping a 12-year-old girl in Ekiti State.
The 35-year-old convict was said to have committed the crime on February 1, 2016, at Iluomoba-Ekiti in Gbonyin Local Government Area of the state.
The prosecution counsel, Akinola Abon, while proving the case, had called witnesses and tendered exhibits while the convict gave evidence in his own defence during the trial.
The Judge held that the evidence tendered before the court, including the medical report, proved that Ismaila committed the crime.
He also ruled that his sentence would start counting from April 14, 2016, when he was first remanded in prison custody for the offence.
