Court sentences man to life imprisonment for raping his daughter in Ondo

A man, Olusola Alo has been sentenced to life imprisonment by an Akure High Court   for raping his daughter.

Alo, it was gathered has been having  having sexual intercourse with his daughter since when she was 10 years old.

The mother of the girl was said to have left her when she was six months old.

According to police prosecutor,   the rape incident was exposed when the girl  claimed at a students’ fellowship meeting that somebody was already having sex with her.

The girl explained that her father would demand sex anytime she requested money from him for school fees and for personal upkeep.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the one-count charge of rape preferred against him.

 Justice Samuel Bola in his judgement, held that the evidence of the victim that the defendant demanded sexual intercourse from her before he acceded to her requests was true.

He, therefore, found the defendant guilty as charged and sentenced him to life imprisonment.
