An Ekiti State High Court in Ado-Ekiti yesterday sentenced a 35-year-old man, Olowo Ismaila, to 14 years imprisonment for defiling a 12-year-old girl.

Justice Bamidele Omotoso held that the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.

He said the evidence before the court, including medical report, statement volunteered by the convict to the police and clothes worn by the victim on the day of the incident indicted Ismaila.

The judge ruled that Ismaila’s sentence would start counting from April 14, 2016 when he was first incarcerated.

The convict committed the crime on February 1, 2016 at Awolowo Street, Iluomoba-Ekiti in Gbonyin Local Government.

The prosecution counsel, Mr. Akinola Abon, called witnesses and tendered evidence to secure Ismaila’s conviction. The convict testified in his own defence.

Abon hailed the judgment, saying it would act as a deterrent to others.

The defence counsel, Mr. Babatunde Falade, said he would consult his client on the possibility of appealing.
