Ilias Mudashiru, an unemployed man has been jailed by an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court for touching a girl’s breasts indecently and stabbing her relatives. The sentence will run for six months after Magistrate F. O. Sasanya convicted Mudashiru, 29, who pleaded guilty to the three-count charge of conspiracy, indecent assault, and assault occasioning harm against him.
The verdict followed a review of the case by prosecuting Sergeant Godspower Ehizoba. The magistrate held: “The defendant is hereby sentenced to three months in prison on count one (conspiracy), three months on count two (indecent assault) and six months on count three (assault occasioning harm). The sentence will run concurrently.”
Mudashiru was arraigned on April 26. Reviewing the case, Ehizoba said the convict committed the offence on April 21, at about 8:20 am, at Bombata Market, Oroyinyin Street, Adeniji Adele, Lagos Island. He said Mudashiru conspired with others at large and indecently assaulted the girl by touching her breasts while she was on her way to a clinic. Ehizoba said Mudashiru stabbed two of the girls who came to her rescue in the head, neck, and arm with a broken bottle.
