She held that evidence before the court showed that the supervisor was guilty as charged.
Adenekan pleaded not guilty on arraignment on Jan. 29, 2018.
According to PM News, she said:
This defendant is conscienceless, wicked, an animal, and not fit to walk on the streets. I hereby sentence Adegboyega Adenekan to 60 years’ imprisonment. This is the sentence of the court.Schools should not cover up teachers who sexually abuse children. Parents should not be carried away by aesthetics of schools. This case may just be the tip of the iceberg as a lot of our children are suffering in silence.Parents should be bold enough to confront teachers and school management because a lot of our children are suffering in silence.I advise or recommend that the education and social welfare ministry workers should visit schools randomly to give them a check.
Seven witnesses, including the pupil and her mother, testified for the prosecution, which closed its case on March 14.
