The embattled Medical Director of Optical Cancer Care Foundation, Dr Olufemi Olaleye is to serve double life imprisonment for defiling 16-year-old wife’s niece.
Justice Rahman Oshodi of the Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court on Tuesday gave the sentence.
He said the prosecution proved the two-count of defilement and sexual assault by penetration against Olaleye.
Oshodi said the evidence adduced before the court against the defendant was compelling and proved beyond reasonable doubts.
According to him, the confessional statement of the defendant, which he made before his lawyer, Mr Olalekan Buruji and the DPO of Anthony Police Station that he regretted his act, proved that he committed the offences.
The judge said that the oral statement, which the defendant denied, had the NBA seal of Buruji on it and his denial did not hold water.
“You are a dangerous offender and you must be ashamed,” he said.
