Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu who presided over the case in which the man pleaded not guilty to the one-count charge against him, held that the evidence presented before the court by the prosecution was tenable and found the convict guilty as charged.

James Mafe, the prosecution counsel and director of legal drafting in Ogun state had earlier told the court that the convict committed the offence on September 4, 2017, at Omu-Aleku village in Mowe area of the state.

The convict reportedly came to the victim’s mother’s shop to make a purchase, but came back when the mother left the shop. Obiakor pretended that the victim’s mother owed him some money and dragged the girl to an uncompleted building beside the shop where he raped her after opening the shop’s iron railings.
