Man Jailed 51 Years For Defiling JSS1 Student

Sunday Salami, a 31-year-old furniture maker, will spend the next half a century languishing in Kirikiri Prisons, Lagos, for defiling a 14-year-old Junior Secondary School 1 student.

Justice Sybil Nwaka of an Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court sentenced Salami after convicting him of defilement contrary to Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011.

Sentencing Salami, the judge pointed out the gravity of the offence of defilement and that the Lagos State Government was using all its resources to fight the menace.

“This is an offence in which the accused person has been accordingly convicted and carries with it a sentence of life imprisonment without an option of fine.

“Learned counsel asked the court to temper justice with mercy, my hands are tied.

“The case of the defendant is a very serious offence that should not be treated with kids gloves and a defendant who is convicted should be put away as our minors especially our young girls are at risk.

“The Lagos State Government is not relenting in fighting this menace and we should all join the government in the fight.

“I hereby sentence the defendant to 50 years in prison,” Justice Nwaka said.
