An Appeal Court in Lagos has dismissed an appeal filed by Adegboyega Adenekan, a school supervisor at Chrisland School, Victoria Garden City (VGC), Lagos who was jailed for 60 years for defiling a two-year-old girl.
Adenekan, who was arraigned on January 29, 2018, on a one-count charge of defiling a two-year-old pupil of Chrisland School, Victoria Garden City (VGC), Lagos State and sentenced to 60 years in prison on October 24, 2019, approached the court of appeal seeking to upturn his conviction.
In the judgment delivered on Monday, however, the appeal court dismissed the Adenekan’ appeal, affirming the verdict of the trial court.
Lagos state Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) made this known in a tweet on Monday.
“The court of appeal dismissed the appeal and affirmed the Judgement of the lower court (sexual offences court – Nwaka J.) in the case of Adegboyega Adenekan (Chrisland School Supervisor) today 27th day of July 2020″, the tweet reads.
The Interview had reported that Adenekan, was among the list of sexual offenders published by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons two months ago.
