The Lagos State Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court has sentenced the Medical Director of Optimal Cancer Care Foundation, Olufemi Olaleye, to life imprisonment for defiling his wife’s niece when the minor was 15/16 years old.
In his judgment, Justice Rahman Oshodi held that the state Government, had proved the charge against the defendant and the evidence against him was compelling.
The judge also directed that Olaleye should have his name written in the Sexual Offences Register of the Lagos State Government.
The prosecution, led by Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions, Babajide Martins, told the court that Olaleye sexually assaulted his wife’s niece for about 19 months until the wife discovered and reported it to the police.
Olaleye was arraigned on a two-count charge of defilement and sexual assault by penetration of the minor between December 2019 and July 2022 when she came to live with their family.
