A 29-year-old mortuary attendant, Sherrif Oyewole, has been sentenced to nine years in prison by a Tinubu Chief Magistrates' Court sitting in Lagos State, after he was found guilty of drugging a 23-year-old woman, before raping her several times and taking her nude photos, with the intent to use them in blackmailing her.

It was gathered that Chief Magistrate Kikelomo Ayeye, found Oyewole guilty on a five count-charge bordering on rape, assault, threat to life, drugging and taking indecent pictures of the victim.

He was first arraigned on August 19, 2015, after the lady reported the matter to the police.

In passing judgement, Ayeye noted:

“With all the evidence before the court, you are found guilty. Prosecution has thus proved counts 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9 offences against the defendant beyond reasonable doubt.

The defendant is hereby convicted and sentenced as follows: unlawful sexual intercourse five years, detaining to have unlawful sex in a hotel room five years, engaging in sexual activities without consent five years, assault one year, sexual assault three years.”

The police prosecutor, Inspector Nurudeen Thomas, had earlier told the court that Oyewole committed the offences on August 16, 2015, at Aro Hotel in Lagos, after he had lured the lady there.

Thomas said the convict who lived with the lady's family, had invited her to a party held at the hotel and took advantage of her and drugged her, after he had forcefully had sexual intercourse with her and later took her pictures while still naked.

“The accused lured the victim into the hotel in her sedated state after drugging her drinks, tore her clothes, soaked them in water, after beating her and raping her.

He also took her nude pictures. When the victim regained her consciousness, the accused threatened to post her pictures on the Internet if she told anyone what happened.

The accused followed her to her mother’s shop where her mother and others at the shop noticed her unusual appearance and started asking questions."

"The accused then took to his heels when he saw that the victim was going to tell her mother what happened, but was caught by a mob who handed him over to the police.

The girl’s underwear was found in his possession and the nude pictures were also in his phone,” Thomas told the court.

He added that the offences contravened Sections 144, 171, 220, 241, 258, 261, 263, 316, 337 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
