A State High Court sitting in Ado-Ekiti has sentenced a Mr. Lucky Ayosin, to life imprisonment for serially raping his own daughter (name withheld) which led to pregnancy and she giving birth for him.
Ayosin was also sentenced to ten years imprisonment for attempting to murder the victim’s elder brother, Ilesanmi Ayosin, who caught him in the act.
Justice John Adeyeye in arriving at the verdict held that the prosecution has proved the case beyond the reasonable doubt by the evidence made available to the court.
The judge ruled that both sentences are to run concurrently.
The convict’s 20-year-old son, Ilesanmi, caught his father having sex with his 16-year-old daughter three times.
Ilesanmi was shot by the father with a single-barrel gun in a bid to cover up his crime but the boy escaped and reported the incident to his mother, Yemisi Bayode, who had divorced from their father 14 years ago leaving the two children in his custody.
Ayosin was first arraigned at the High Court on 21st February, 2017 on two-count charge of attempted murder and rape.
The prosecution called five witnesses to prove the case including a medical doctor who examined the girl raped and put in family way by her father.
