51-year-old Lagos man bags life jail for defiling colleague’s nine-year-old daughter


Ubregbo Parmer was sentenced to life imprisonment by an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court after he was found guilty of defiling his colleague’s nine-year-old daughter on December 10, 2019. The state counsel, Olufunke Adegoke, called two witnesses and tendered two exhibits during the trial while the defendant testified as the sole witness in his defence. JUDICIACIARYJustice Abiola Soladoye held that the prosecution had sufficiently proved the charge of defilement against the convict, and that the testimonies of the prosecution witnesses, the victim and a medical doctor who appeared as a witness had showed that the convict committed the offence. She also ruled that the defendant should have his name registered in the sexual offence register as maintained by Lagos State and that the mother of the victim had been negligent in her motherly care and allowing her child to be taken away by her male colleague without supervision.
