Scavenger jailed 13 years for raping 12-yr-old pupil

A scrap collector who raped a 12-year-old girl in Lagos State has been sentenced to 13 years in prison.

The convicted rapist, Nurudeen Oriyomi

Oriyomi, an indigene of Ilorin, Kwara State, had allegedly lured the girl into his house on Alhaji Yinusa Street in the area and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her on April 9, 2016.

He had pleaded that he raped her because his girlfriend had refused to visit him and he was starved of sex, and hence had to drag the girl into his room while she was sent on an errand by her grandmother. After the rape, he allegedly gave the girl the sum of N200.

The act was uncovered after the girl's mother who had travelled out of Lagos, returned from her trip and discovered a whitish substance in her private parts and after probing her, the victim confessed that Oriyomi raped her.

The matter was reported at the Bariga Police Division, before it was referred to the Gender Unit of the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters.

After the convict pleaded guilty to the two-counts charges bordering on rape preferred against him, the magistrate, Mrs. B.O. Osunsanmi, duly sent him to jail without an option of fine.
