Court jail cultist, rapist for life

A man in his early twenties, Moses Adedotun is set to spend the rest of his life behind bars after he was sentenced by an Akure High Court to seven years imprisonment over membership of a cult group, and life imprisonment for rape.
Justice Samuel Bola of Court “4” of the Ondo State High Court, who gave the judgement, stated that the evidences brought before the court proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused indeed perpetrated the crime.
According the Justice Bola, the culprit was found to be a member of a cult group based in Nasarawa called “Arogbale”, using his membership of the cult to terrorize his neighbours.
The second count charge read that the accused person was alleged to have forcefully had carnal knowledge of a student of Adeyemi College of Education who lives off campus, Miss Suara.
The victim, who narrated the ordeals she went through in the hands of Moses before the court, said that he was a neighbour who lived near her house who is notoriously known for extorting people within the locality, and bullying young men and women alike.
“On the fateful day I was raped, he lured me into his room on the pretence of sending me to buy him groundnuts and directed me to wait for him in his room as soon as I came back with the groundnuts.
“I met a guy in his room when I entered but he had sent the guy out of the room when I came back.
“He told me that he was going to rape me and I started to beg him but he refused to listen and stripped off my underwears while holding a cutlass and then had carnal knowledge of me.”

According to the victim, she pleaded with him that she was a virgin but that he would not be dissuaded from his agonising mission and went until he ejaculated inside her.
“When he got off me, he forced me to stay indoors and stated that he would still have more after he had taken some fresh air outside and he went outside while he shut the door.
“It was then that I summoned the courage to use his phone which he left inside the room to call my roommate who later came with other neighbours to confront him and I was rescued.
“After the excruciating ordeal, I went to report him to the Student Union Government’s president who came the next day to arrest him and handed him over to the police after which I was taken to the school clinic for examination and treatment.”

Meanwhile, during the physical examination of the girl, the doctor, Adekunle Adebayo, who also testified in court, revealed a roughly ruptured hymen which was still tender and that the victim complained of pains around the area which signified a forceful entry.
