A 57-year-old man, David Oluwatoba, has been sentenced to 14 years prisonment for raping his 4-year-old step-daughter (names withheld).
Justice Toyin Abodunde of an Ado-Ekiti High Court held that the prosecution has proved the case beyond every reasonable doubt on the weight of evidence be­fore the court.
The judge held that the prison term started count­ing from the day of convic­tion.
The incident happened on 12th August, 2013 at Odo Usi Street, Awo Road, Igede-Ekiti in Irepodun/Ifelodun LGA while the convict was first arraigned in court on 27th November, 2015.
Exhibits tendered to convict Oluwatoba include photographs, medical re­port on sexual assault, state­ment of the accused at the police station, among oth­ers.
The convict is married to two wives including the mother of the victim who is the second wife. The victim was a product from a pre­vious marriage before her mother married the convict.
On the day of the inci­dent, the victim’s mother was not at home and the convict had a carnal knowl­edge of the girl after bathing her.
