Man sentenced to life imprisonment for raping own daughter

Prosecutors did not attend Tuesday's hearing in the federal high court in Lagos, as they previously failed to present some of their witnesses in a case that had been repeatedly postponed.

An Ondo State High Court in Akure, the state capital, has sentenced a man, Olusola Alo, to life in prison for raping his own daughter.


Alo, it was reported, had had sex with his biological daughter since she was 10 years old.

The girl’s mother is said to have left him when the girl was six months old.

According to the police prosecutor, the secret was exposed when the girl claimed at a student scholarship meeting that someone was already having sex with her.

The girl explained that her father would demand sex every time she asked him for money for school fees and personal maintenance.

The convict has pleaded not guilty to the charge of a preferred rape charge against him.

In his sentencing, Judge Samuel Bola held that the victim’s evidence that the defendant required him to have sex before agreeing to his requests was considered true.

Therefore, he found the defendant guilty of the charges and sentenced him to life imprisonment.
