Must Read : Father Raped Teenage Daughter For 6 Years, LASG Report Shows


Onlookers were left stunned during a court hearing yesterday, Thursday, November 15, 2018, when a medical practitioner, Elizabeth Olatunji, narrated to the Lagos State Special Offences Court how a 51-year-old electrician, Folorunsho Oluwaseun, sexually assaulted his 17-year-old daughter for over six years.
The suspect, Oluwaseun is standing trial before Justice Sybil Nwaka on charges of defilement and sexual assault.
According to Eyes Of Lagos reports gathered, Oluwaseun allegedly committed the offence at his No. 40 Popoola Street, Offin residence in the Ikorodu, Lagos Mainland.
During the hearing, the prosecutor, B. T. Boye, and the medical personnel who works at the Department of Family Medicine, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, said the forensic examination conducted on the victim indicated a long and repeated penile penetration, which lasted for six years.
Olatunji, who also works at the Mirabel Centre, where rape victims in the state are referred to, noted that the medical examination showed that the victim sustained an injury to her private parts, adding that the defendant also assaulted the victim’s sister.
“The main finding was on the hymen. There was a transition on the hymen. The victim told me that she was angry. She said her father was not only sexually assaulting her; he was also assaulting her younger sister. She said her father began to sleep with her not long after her mother left them.
“The girl also said that when the matter persisted, she reported to her grandmother but the grandmother ignored her and only said that there was no cause for alarm as long as her father did not get them pregnant,” the medical doctor told the court.
Meanwhile, during cross-examination by the defence counsel, Worer Obuagbaka, Olatunji insisted that the victim told her that it was her father who assaulted her, adding that the medical test conducted showed that there was penile penetration, which caused injuries to the victim’s hymen.
Obuagbaka, however, urged the court to adjourn the case to enable him prepare his client and present his witnesses.
The case was then adjourned till December 18, 2018, for the continuation of trial by Justice Nwaka.
