See the punishment court gave a man for raping his daughter
It was a sad day for a 52-year-old man as the Ikeja Special Offences Court sentenced the man, Akin Isaac, to 21 years for raping his 18-year–old daughter for 12 years in Lagos State.
Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo sentenced the convict to 21 years imprisonment following his plea of guilty to the one count preferred against him by the Lagos State Government.
During the arraignment, the state’s prosecution counsel, Omowumi Bajulaye-Bishi, told the court that Isaac defiled his daughter from age six to age 18.
According to the prosecution, the offence committed contravened Section 137 of the Criminal Law Cap C.17 Vol. 3 Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
In her judgment on the plea bargain agreement the convict signed with the state, the judge said the 21 years proposed sentence by the ministry of justice was too small to the offence which carried life imprisonment.
She held, “I knew this case very well, I could remember the survivor was crying when giving evidence before the court that she had abortion and how the defendant had beaten her.
“The prosecution had called four witnesses who testified against the defendant. The defendant initially pleaded not guilty.”
