James Mafe, the prosecution counsel and director of legal drafting in Ogun state had earlier told the court that the convict committed the offence on September 4, 2017, at Omu-Aleku village in Mowe area of the state.

The convict reportedly came to the victim's mother’s shop to make a purchase, but came back when the mother left the shop.

Justice Dipeolu consequently sentenced Obiakor to 25 years imprisonment with hard labour.
