Home teacher impregnates teenager In Lagos

The Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court has sentenced a ‘lesson teacher,’ Joseph Ibanga, to life imprisonment for defiling and impregnating a 14-year-old girl.

Justice Abiola Soladoye, in her judgement, said that the prosecution had proved the charge of defilement against the convict.

“The survivor identified the defendant as her lesson teacher and the person who had forced sexual intercourse with her.

“The defendant is very ungrateful and wicked. He ravished the student with impunity and taught her nonsense. He has brought ridicule to the teaching profession, and this punishment will serve as a lesson to him.

“The defendant is hereby found guilty as charged, based on the avalanche of evidence against him, and he is sentenced to life imprisonment.”

The judge ordered that the convict should have his name entered into the register of sexual offenders of Lagos State.

The prosecution presented three witnesses at the trial, while the defendant had no witness, he gave his sole defence.

According to the prosecution team, Olusola Soneye, Olufunke Adegoke and Abimbola Abolade, the defendant committed the offence between January and March 2019 at No.12, Iresi St. Orile-Agege, in Lagos.

They submitted that the defendant was a lesson teacher who taught the survivor at home because she was not in school for a long time due to slow learning.

They said that the defendant had s3x with her in her home, where she lived with her aunt.

The offence violated Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, which stipulates life imprisonment for offenders.
