In his judgment, Justice A.A Akinyemi of the Ogun State High Court in Abeokuta, said :

"The court is convinced about the girl's testimonies. She is intelligent and remained consistent during cross examination. She does not seem to have been tutored. I find her evidence credible. I am fully convinced that the accused had repeatedly had sex with the girl.

"I found the accused guilty as charged. I find it not in my mind to show any mercy. The man is shameless, sleeping with mother and child. People like him need not to be in the society. I therefore sentence him to life imprisonment. He should, however, be given access to reasonable treatment."

‎The accused's counsel,  Adebola Okudoro, prayed the court to temper justice with mercy in its judgment, arguing that the allegation against his client was unfounded.
