The Lagos Division of the Court of Appeal on Monday affirmed the 60-year jail term imposed on a former Supervisor at Chrisland School, Adegboyega Adenekan, who was convicted of defiling a two-year old female pupil of the school.
Adenekan was convicted of the offence in October 24, 2019, by Justice Sybil Nwaka of the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja.
Displeased with Justice Nwaka’s verdict, Adenekan had, through his lawyer, Mr Olatunde Adejuyigbe (SAN), approached the Court of Appeal, seeking to overturn it.
But a three-man appeal court panel, headed by Justice Mohammed Garba, dismissed the appeal for lacking in merit.
The appellate court affirmed the 60-year jail term imposed on him by the high court. (Punch)
