Embattled Medical Director of Optical Cancer Care Foundation, Dr. Olufemi Olaleye, who confessed having sex with the 16-year-old wife’s niece, has been sentenced to double life imprisonment.
Justice Rahman Oshodi of the Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court in Ikeja, Lagos, held that the prosecution proved the two-count of defilement and sexual assault by penetration against Olaleye.
Justice Oshodi said that the evidence adduced before the court against the defendant was compelling and proved beyond reasonable doubts.
According to him, the confessional statement of the defendant, which he made before his lawyer, Olalekan Buruji and the DPO of Anthony Police Station, that he regretted his act, proved that he committed the offence.
The judge said that the oral statement, which the defendant denied, had the NBA seal of Buruji on it and his denial did not hold water.
“You are a dangerous offender and you must be ashamed,” he said.
