The Assistant Pastor (AP) in a Pentecostal church at Okota, Lagos State, Michael Oliseh, has been sent to life imprisonment for raping his friend’s 12-year-old twin daughters.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the pastor, described as a “serial rapist”, took advantage of the teen twins when their father entrusted them in his care during his journey to the village for burial.
Justice Abiola Soladoye of the Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court on Wednesday passed the life imprisonment judgement on the preacher.
United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) had reported that one in four girls and one in ten boys in Nigeria had experienced sexual violence before the age of 18. According to a survey by Positive Action for Treatment Access, over 31.4 percent of girls there said that their first sexual encounter had been rape or forced sex of some kind.
