Court Sentences School Driver, Assistant for Sexual Assault on five-year-old Pupil

Discharges another
A Lagos State Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court, yesterday, sentenced a school bus driver, Tony Akpan to life imprisonment for sexually assaulting a five-year-old pupil.

The judge said that the testimony of the survivor was truthful and boldly narrated by her, while the medical Doctor’s evidence corroborated what she said.
    
The prosecution had told the court that the convicts committed the offence on October 20, 2017, on Magodo Road, Isheri, Lagos.
   
In another suit, the judge discharged and acquitted one Sunday Akpan, charged for defiling his 10-year-old step-daughter.

“It is the duty of the prosecution to call admissible witnesses against the defendant. Ample opportunities were given to the prosecution to bring more witnesses to court but all to no avail. The court cannot wait forever.
 
“The court is only interested in the testimony of quality witnesses. I wish to say that the case has been a colossal waste of time. The defendant is hereby discharged and found not committing the crime.”
