An Ikeja Magistrates' Court on Friday sentenced a 25-year-old unemployed man, Ogboru Godspower, to 14 years imprisonment for defiling a 13-year-old daughter of his neighbour.

The convict, lives at 30, Egbin Sand filled Ijede, Ikorodu in Lagos.

The prosecutor, Jimah Iseghede, had told the court that the offence was committed on Aug. 8 at Godspower’s residence.

Iseghede said that the victim was going to take her bath when the accused waylaid her, removed her towel and defiled her.
