Man, Akin Isaac, sentenced to 21 years imprisonment for defiling his daughter for 12 years and impregnating her in Lagos

A Lagos Special Offences Court, sitting in Ikeja, has sentenced a 52-year-old man, Akin Isaac, to 21years imprisonment for defiling and aborting a pregnancy for his 18-year-old daughter for 12years.

It is reported that the convict had been having sex with his daughter beginning from the age of six. Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo sentenced the convict to 21years imprisonment, following his plea bargain application dated April 21.

Justice Taiwo said: “In view of the guilty plea of the defendant to one count of defilement, I hereby find the defendant guilty as charged.” The judge thereafter asked the defendant, if he had anything to say, following his conviction.
The convict knelt down in the dock and pleaded for mercy, explaining that he had an aged mother to look after.

Justice Taiwo then sentenced him to 21 years in prison, adding that the sentencing should take effect from June 2020 when he was arrested. Earlier, the judge had asked the State Counsel, Mrs Omowumi Bajulaye-Bishi if the 21 years plea bargain was good enough for the convict, owing to how emotional the survivor was while she was giving her testimony.

“I remember the survivor clearly. She was weeping right here in the box. Abortion, pregnancy, drugs, beating and all sort of inhuman meted on her by her own father? Do you think 21years is good enough for him?,” the judge asked.

Bajulaye-Bishi, in her review of facts dated July 6, had informed the court that the convict applied and concluded to change his plea, upon which the information against him be amended to the offence of defilement. The prosecutor said the defendant had started having an unlawful sexual intercourse with his 18-year-old daughter, while she was six years old, which resulted into at least one pregnancy.

She also submitted that the defendant attempted to procure abortion for her and regularly administered drugs to her to prevent pregnancy.
