Justice Abiola Soladoye of an Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court, Lagos State, on Tuesday, sentenced an Islamic teacher, Adam Farouk, to life imprisonment for defiling eight pupils in his class.
Farouk defiled the pupils, who were between the ages of six and 11, between November 2018 to February 2019 on Balogun Street, Parkview Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos.
The convict was arraigned on eight counts of sexual assault preferred against him by the Lagos State Government.
While delivering judgment, Justice Soladoye stated that the prosecution proved beyond reasonable doubt the ingredients of the eight counts bordering on sexual assault by penetration.
Soladoye described the convict as morally corrupt and an embarrassment to the Islamic faith.
The judge held that the testimony of the survivors was consistent and truthful, adding that their demeanor during trial showed that they were not lying.
She said the evidence of the pupils was corroborated as they identified the convict as their teacher who penetrated their private parts with his index fingers.
