Dismissed policeman gets life imprisonment for defiling 9-year-old

An Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court on Monday sentenced a dismisses policeman, Mohammed Alidu, to life imprisonment for defiling a nine-year-old school  girl in a barrack

Justice Abiola Soladoye, in her judgment, held that Alidu  was a disgrace to the police because he failed to uphold law and order and went about frolicking with an underage girl.

Soladoye held that the prosecution had convincingly proved the charge of defilement against the convict  beyond any reasonable doubt.

She said the survivors’ evidence was fully corroborated by the  medical evidence.

“He is a disgrace to the entire Police because he failed to uphold law and order as he went on a frolic of his own by engaging in a bizarre and irresponsible behaviour turning the barracks into a sex den.

“It is most chilling. The defendant is hereby sentenced to life imprisonment without the option of fine.
