A man has been sentenced to double life imprisonment for sexual assault of minors.

Following a comprehensive trial, Ndedigwe Paul was sentenced at the Special Offences and Domestic Violence Court, Ikeja, on Tuesday, Jan. 30.

The convict was handed down the sentence by Justice Abiola Soladoye, who, after a careful consideration of the evidence presented, found the defendant guilty on two out of the three-count charges of defilement and unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor contravening Section 137 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015.

Ndedigwe is said to have lured the victims, who were ages six and seven at that time, into his room and had sexual intercourse with each of them while the other watched.

He entered a not guilty plea to the three counts of defiling youngsters, ages six and seven, respectively, when he was arraigned on February 14, 2023.

But during the trial, Olufunke Adegoke and A.P. Bolanle, the prosecution, made a strong case, and the victims were called to testify. Every victim related the graphic event and named Ndedigwe as the man who welcomed them into his room and engaged in sexual activity with them on his bed.

In order to discourage future pedophiles, the judge characterized the guy as “a rough, crude, greedy, paedophile and a destiny destroyer for corrupting the morals of the young girls.”
