A man was sentenced to 21 years in prison for defiling and impregnating his daughter.
A 52-year-old man named Akin Isaac was sentenced to 21 years in prison yesterday for defiling and impregnating his 18-year-old daughter by an Ikeja Special Offenses Court.

Following the convict's April 21 plea agreement application, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo sentenced him to 21 years in jail.

I hereby find the defendant guilty as charged in light of the defendant's guilty plea to one count of defilement, Taiwo added.

Following his conviction, the court then asked the defendant whether he had anything to say.

The prisoner begged for forgiveness while begging on his knees in the dock, claiming he had an elderly mother to care for.

After that, Taiwo gave him a 21-year prison term, adding that it should start on the date of his arrest in June 2020.

Due of how passionate the victim was when testifying, the judge had earlier asked the State Counsel, Mrs. Omowumi Bajulaye- Bishi, if the 21-year plea agreement was sufficient for the criminal.

"I clearly recall the survivor. She was sobbing in this box right here. Her father subjected her to various forms of brutal treatment, including beatings, medications, and pregnancy.

The judge questioned, "Do you believe 21 years is good enough for him?"

The court was informed by Bajulaye-Bishi in her assessment of the facts dated July 6 that the convict sought for and decided to change his plea, leading to the information against him being changed to the offence of defilement.
