Lagos State's Sexual Offences & Domestic Violence Court sentences offender to 60 Years in Jail for Defilement

Lagos State’s special Court for Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence has pronounced its first sentence today. The court was commissioned last month to handle cases of sexual and domestic violence in the state.

The first sentence was a case of defilement and the offender was sentenced to 60 years in jail.

The Domestic & Social Violence Response Team made this known via their official Twitter page this evening:

    Thank you God. If there’s anything to be proud about in this Nigeria right now, it is this. I’m so happy Lagos is paying attention. Now let’s do this state by state. These wicked humans need to know that there are grave consequences for their actions.

    I’m glad we’re using the law.

    60 years is a bit excessive. But it may serve as a deterrent

      Excessive, did you say? How is that in comparison with the rest of the victim’s years that may never be the same again?

      SOME PEOPLE JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND THE GRAVITY OF THE CRIME OF “DEFILING A CHILD”, RAPING A CHILD., RAPING ANYONE..
      IT ALTERS A VICTIM COMPLETELY AND THEY HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT FOR MORE THAN 60 YEARS.
      A very appropriate and necessary sentence,.

      Why are you like this? If someone has a different opinion on the duration of the punishment does that automatically make them a child molester? Mind you a child molester is one who has molested a child not one who questions the duration the of the punishment given to one.

    Tunmi the child molester. We see you. Keep showing yourself. The law is coming for you and we will dance on your grave soon. A child condemned to a lifetime of horror and pain vs 60yrs jail term. Molester Tunmi, we are coming for you. Nonsense.

    Pls when is the woman running this agency going to run for lagos state governor? Ambode should pls hand over to her. She makes this happen. She can sort out dirty lagos amongst other things.

    Not interested in terminology at this point, rape o, defilement, it is justice well served. Thank the Lord everyday for this special court designed for the very ‘special’ demons roaming among us. Where can we find the sexual offender registry? I have been looking for it. Please make this accessible to the public!
