On Wednesday, a 29-year-old man was slapped with 6 months imprisonment for fondling breasts of a minor and stabbing her relatives.
The man identified as Ilias Mudashiru was sentenced in a court in Lagos after he pleaded guilty of the offense.
Magistrate F. O. Sasanya convicted Mudashiru, 29 after he pleaded guilty to a three-count charge of conspiracy, indecent assault, and assault occasioning harm.
The Magistrate convicted the offender after listening to the review of facts given by prosecuting Sergeant Godspower Ehizoba.
The Magistrate held:
“The defendant is hereby sentenced him to three months in prison on count one (conspiracy), three months on count two (indecent assault) and six months in prison on count three (assault occasioning harm).
The court was informed that Mr. Mudashiru committed the offenses on April 21, at about 8:20 am, at Bombata Market, Oroyinyin Street in the Adeniji Adele area of Lagos Island.
He said Mudashiru conspired with others still at large and indecently assaulted Judith Nwachima by touching her on her breast while she was on her way to a clinic.
Ehizoba said while Mudashiru was assaulting Nwachima, two of her relatives, Stanely Chinedu and Asoiba Chinedu, came to rescue her but Mudashiru stabbed them on the head, neck, and arm with a broken bottle.
