Man Sentenced To Life Imprisonment For Raping, Robbing Student At UNILAG

An Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court, on Tuesday, sentenced a man, Collins Okechukwu, to life imprisonment for raping and robbing a 25-year-old student (name withheld) at the University of Lagos.

Delivering judgment, Justice Abiola Soladoye, who described Okechukwu as a “pathological liar,” held that the prosecution proved the charges of rape and robbery against Okechukwu beyond a reasonable doubt.

The judge sentenced Okechukwu to life imprisonment for rape and 21 years imprisonment for robbery. The judge, however, ordered that the two sentences should run concurrently.

She said: “The testimony of the defendant portrayed him as a pathological liar in the sense that he claimed that University of Lagos Guest House was fully booked and the victim was sex-starved, which made them have sex on the bare floor. This is unbelievable and watery.

“The defendant lured the victim into the Admin Block, brought out a pistol, raped her and robbed her of her valuables thereafter. The claim of the defendant to have met the victim at the guest house and she agreed to have sex with him was consistently laced with irregularities and found unreliable.

“The defendant is found guilty as charged of the two offences and thereby sentenced to life imprisonment in respect to rape and 21 years jail term for robbery. The sentences shall run concurrently
