Defilement: Appeal Court Affirms Ex-Chrisland Supervisor’s 60-yr Imprisonment
An appellate court sitting in Lagos has upheld the 60-year sentence of a former supervisor of Chrisland School, Adegboyega Adenekan, who was convicted of defiling a two-year and 11-month-old pupil of the school in 2016.
Justice Sybil Nwaka had, on October 24, 2019, convicted Adenekan after finding him guilty of defilement filed against him by the state government.
Dissatisfied with the judgment, Adenekan’s counsel, Mr. Olatunde Adejuyigbe (SAN), proceeded to the appellate court to challenge the decision of the lower court.
Delivering judgement yesterday, the three-man panel, led by Justice Mohammad Garba, dismissed the appeal for lack of merit.
