The Akwa Ibom State High Court sitting in Ikot Ekpene Local Government Area has condemned a 42-year-elderly person, Daniel George, to three years’ detainment for debasing a nine-year-old young lady.
The blamed, a local of Mbat Esifon in Obot Akara LGA, was said to have submitted the offense in February 25, 2015, and was charged to court on April 23 of that very year, however he got away from jail authority.
In his assertion, the blamed denied having the fornication for the young lady, however conceded that he just embedded his fingers into the private piece of the person in question.
Conveying the judgment on Thursday, the managing judge, Justice Augustine Odokwo, condemned the blamed to three years’ detainment with whipping.
Equity Odokwo sentenced the charged and encouraged guardians to look after their female kids
“Guardians are encouraged to be cautious and watch over their female youngsters to save the young lady kid from any semblance of Daniel Silas George,” the appointed authority said.
