She said;

The offence committed against this young lady was a violation of her chastity, which would have left huge emotional scars from which I pray and hope she will recover.

I cannot begin to imagine the physical and mental trauma she has had to endure from the man whom she considered her father’s friend, a community leader who should have known better. This is a shame.

This is a crime that not only offends the survivor, it offends her family, it offends the society at large, it also offends God.

I find you, Baruwa Afeez Akin, guilty of the one count of rape contrary to Section 258(1) of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2011, and hereby convict you accordingly.

In line with Section 258 of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2011, Baruwa Afeez Akin is hereby sentenced to 21 years’ imprisonment.
