                                Cultist Gets 20 Years Jail Term For Raping FUOYE Undergraduate And Friend

Lagos State Special Offences Court, through Justice Abiola Soladoye on Monday, 13th of July sentenced a cult member, Tayo Bakare to 20 years in prison for raping an undergraduate student of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), and her friend.

Bakare was arraigned on eight counts bordering on conspiracy to commit robbery, deprivation of liberty and r*pe, Punch Metro reported.

The prosecution said the offenses contravened sections 260(1) (2), 272, 297(1) and 299 of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2015.


The 19-year-old victim had alleged that Bakare, on August 27, 2017, in the Ikotun area of Lagos, ordered her to remove her clothes, took her nude pictures with her phone and forcefully had s.e.xual intercourse with her.

The 300-level student had told the court that 24-year-old Bakare pretended as a family friend and lured her to a hotel, where he raped her, adding that the convict also threatened to kill her.

Bakare, who denied r*ping the two friends, however, admitted having s.e.xual intercourse with them.

Delivering the judgment on Monday, Justice Soladoye discharged and acquitted the convict on four out of the eight counts and found him guilty on the others.

“The convict shall serve 10 years in respect of count two, 10 years in respect of count four, 10 years in respect of count six and 20 years in respect of count eight. 


However, these sentences are to run concurrently,” Justice Soladoye said.
