Father Bags 10 Year For Impregnating Daughter
A Federal High Court has sentenced a man to 10-years imprisonment for defiling and impregnating his teenage daughter.
Justice Muslim Hassan sentenced him on Friday in Lagos.
Yesiru Onajobi, 58, of Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos was charged in 2011 of having carnal knowledge of his 13-year-old daughter.
Onajobi was prosecuted by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons (NAPTIP)
The Convict took custody of his only daughter who is a twin after the death of his wife, while the son was taken in by a relative.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the convict molested his wife repeatedly.
Justice Hassan deliberated that it was hard to disbelieve the evidence of the victims who gave a vivid account of what her father did to her, adding that the testimony would remain constant.
He ruled, “I hereby sentence you, Yesiru Onajobi, to 10 years’ imprisonment each on counts one and two, without an option of fine. The terms shall run concurrently from the date of arrest.”
