Software Engineer Bags Life Imprisonment For Raping Minor On Children’s Day by opamoses1: 4:56am On Apr 24
Justice Rahman Oshodi of an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court on Tuesday convicted and sentenced a 32-year-old software engineer, Chukwudi Anyanwu, who had unlawful sexual intercourse with his neighbour’s 13-year-old daughter on Children’s Day, 2021 to life imprisonment.

The judge while delivering the judgment held that the prosecution was able to prove the ingredient of defilement of a minor against Anyanwu.

He held that the evidence of the survivor was corroborated by the medical report and that of her guardian (name withheld).

The judge disregarded the testimonies of two police officers, ASP Iyabo Dawodu with AP number 055567 and Inspector Rebecca Osola-Jacob, who were listed on the prosecution witness list, saying they gave evidence for the defence instead of the prosecution which showed that their testimonies were tainted.

Justice Oshodi also held that the alibi and the issue of extortion which the convict relied on did not hold water.

According to him, the evidence presented in court against the convict had shown that he took advantage of the vulnerable 13-year-old girl who was living in the same compound as him.

He said the convict exploited his position of familiarity and authority to lure the survivor into his room on Children’s Day, 2021, and subjected her to the harrowing ordeal of sexual abuse.


The judge also said the convict’s action had undoubtedly inflicted deep psychological wounds that might take a lifetime to heal.

“You have shown a troubling lack of integrity and remorse throughout the proceedings and when you were confronted by the victim’s guardian about the heinous act, you initially denied any wrongdoing.

“However, when the young brave victim repeated the details of your abuse in your presence, you resorted to begging for forgiveness, claiming it was the work of the devil.

“This attempt to evade responsibility and downplay the severity of your action is reprehensible.


The judge observed that even more concerning was that the convict expressed his intention to bribe the police to suppress the case and protect his reputation.

“This blatant disregard for the law and attempt to pervert the course of justice is a serious aggravating factor that cannot be overlooked,” Oshodi said.

The judge further held that the impact of the convict’s actions on the survivor could not be overstated as he had robbed her of her innocence, shattered her trust and left her with deep emotional scars.

He said that the court must ensure that justice was served and that society received a clear message that such reprehensible acts would not be tolerated.

He said: “I hope this sentence brings some measure of closure and helps her on the path of healing.

“In line with the severe nature of the offence, the breach of trust involved, your lack of remorse, your attempt to pervert the course of justice and the long-lasting impact on the victim, I now sentence you, Chukwudi Anyanwu, to the mandatory life sentence under Section 137 of the Criminal Law (Supra).

“This sentence reflects the gravity of your actions and the need to protect vulnerable members of our society from predatory individuals like yourself.


“During your time in the custodial centre, I hope you reflect on the immense harm you have caused and take steps towards rehabilitation.”

The state counsel, led by Mr Babajide Boye, called three witnesses, the survivor, the survivor’s guardian and a medical doctor while the defence called the two police officers as witnesses.

According to the prosecution, the convict committed the offence on May 27, 2021, on Thomas Animashaun Street, Aguda, Surulere, Lagos State.

He was given life sentence because he is Igbo. If he was to be a Yoruba or hausa man, that mumu and bias Justice Oshodi, would have sentence him to five years in prison starting from the day of his arrest.

May lightning strike your RAPEY heads! What a bunch of rapists and pedophiles!

A 32-year old man a 13-year old girl to his room and proceeded to FORCEFULLY and roughly have sex with a little kid.

Adults who get raped become TRAUMATIZED and often develop PTSD that is impossible to overcome. Especially since mental healthcare in Nigeria does not go beyond "deal with it".

But in this case, it was a KID that was raped. She has live the rest of her life with that psychological TRAUMA. Plus, the stigma for rape victims in Nigeria is only slightly less pervasive than sympathy for rapist. Both are WORRYINGLY high.

Then there is the issue of STDs/STIs that the criminal might have inflicted on a little kid.

But that's NOT even the worst of it. No, siree!

The WORST of it is that the CHILD RAPIDT bribed TWO police officers to testify for him. He wanted to use his SE money to get away with raping a child.

Also, he showed ZERO remorse. Then he blamed the INNOCENT Devil. Claiming that the devil made him rape a child.

Rape has been treated with a kid's glove for FAR too long. It's why rape is for rampant. Nothing to deter rapists like the ones I quoted. They expect to traumatize a person FOR LIFE and be out of jail in a breeze.

Again, lightning strike ALL of you!

God bless JUSTICE RAHMAN OSHODI! We need more no-nonsense Judges like him in Nigeria to stem the tide of marauding pedophiles and rapists.

Well deserved sentence,since he couldn't control himself and rebuke that spirit of lust inside him.All rapists deserve a life time in prison.
The two useless police men should also be sentenced to prison,for trying to suppress the case and cover for the animal.

Stop being unnecessarily and stupidly sentimental.
Every rapist deserves a lifetime of prison, irrespective of ethnicity and religion.
The Bishop Fatoyimbo who is now serving a life of prison for rape,was he Igbo,or the medical doctor Oluyele also serving lifetime for raping his wife's niece.
All these Zombiedents and their lack of reasoning.

Politicians should also get life imprisonment.

They inflict psychological and life time trauma on millions of people. And this is already evident when you see Nigerians call themselves Atikulated, BATists and Obidients

Na so una tins dey be for that side.

This same justice oshodi sentenced a whole 'Bishop' Feyi to life imprisonment for 'raping' a 23 year old adult, we never heard any yoruba wail 'victimization'; but he must let shukudi go home for raping a 13 yr old kid because he's Igbo abi??

Na lord lugard cause all this paranran.

Even if he didn't force her, that evil being needs to be doing hard labour for a very long time in prison.

What on earth can possess a grown man to be sexually aroused by a child that age? What pleasure can you derive with someone like that.

Another poster and I were on another thread discussing how this kind of thing was more of a stain on the nation than homosexuality between consenting adults and people were trying to gaslight us.

Life imprisonment for what? Someone should ask the girl how she dressed to warrant the rape because most of these small Children of nowadays now carry things that are far bigger than their age, things that mature girls wish they had, that's what these children carry up and down and some of them dress anyhow. Life imprint is a no no for me because what is id the girl was not well dressed?

Another rapist!

How can a 13-year old kid dress to justify being raped by a USELESS 32-year old man.

You are a DISGUSTING rapist and the reason why sentences like this should be the norm.
