A High Court in Osun State has sentenced a 70-year-old man identified as Chief Moses Adeniyi, for raping two teenage pupils.

The Osun State Ministry of Justice, through a statement released by its Information Officer, Mr. Opeyemi Bello, confirmed the sentencing on Thursday, April 21, 2016.

Chief Adeniyi, who holds the title of Loja, Araromi Otokobo, was arraigned in court on March 28, 2011, and charged with rape and indecent assault.

This has led to his sentencing of 7 years in prison after being found guilty of the accusation.

The statement reads, “After defiling them, he wiped their private parts with a piece of white cloth and threatened them that anyone who disclosed his action would die.

“But one of the parents of the victims was said to have been told that her daughter was given a free ride by a man and she went to inquire from the school who the man was.

“The girls were said to have initially refused to disclose what Adeniyi did to them for fear of death. They were given an assurance that nothing would happen to them before they narrated their ordeal.”

Justice Kudirat Akano presided over the case, and upheld the prosecution counsel's argument which provided evidence that convicted Adeniyi of the crime.
