5 Years Later, Boy Bags 10 Years In Jail For Raping A 5 Year Old Girl To Death

A Bayelsa State High Court sitting in Sagbama, Yenagoa has sentenced a 21-year-old man, Timiondu Jephtath, to 10 years imprisonment for raping a five-year-old girl to death.

The accused raped the girl to death at Akede community in Sagbama Local Government Area of the state in 2016. It was gathered that Jephtath, who was 16 at the time, dumped her lifeless body in an abandoned fish pond close to his residence.

A lawyer and Gender Advocate, Deme Pamosoo, who acted as the counsel to the victim’s parents ensured that the victim’s body was recovered, an autopsy conducted by the Police and a watertight case file, presented to the State Ministry of Justice for the Director of Public Prosecution recommendation for trial.

The Presiding Judge, Justice E.G Omukoro in his ruling in the suit numbered SHC/4C/2016 with a one-count charge of murder brought against the accused by the State Ministry of Justice, declared that the charge becomes manslaughter due to the inability of the prosecution to prove the intent to commit murder.

In his ruling, after considering the defendant’s plea of allocutus, Justice Omukoro declared that the court is mindful of the youthful age of the defendant who could be redeemed and make amends by way of atonement for his action.

He, therefore ordered that the defendant be detained at the Okaka Correctional Centre in Yenagoa or elsewhere as the Governor may determine, for a period of 10 years at the pleasure of the State.
