Magistrate F. O. Sasanya convicted Mudashiru, 29, following his plea of “guilty” to a three-count charge of conspiracy, indecent assault and assault occasioning harm.

The offences contravened Sections 173, 263 (i) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

She sentenced Mudashiru after listening to the review of facts given by prosecuting Sergeant Godspower Ehizoba.

The Magistrate held: “The defendant is hereby sentenced him to three months in prison on count one (conspiracy), three months on count two (indecent assault) and six months in prison on count three (assault occasioning harm).

“The sentence will run concurrently.”

Mudashiru was arraigned for the offences on April 26.

In his review of the case, Ehizoba told the court that he committed the offences on April 21, at about 8:20am, at Bombata Market, Oroyinyin Street in the Adeniji Adele area of Lagos Island.

He said Mudashiru conspired with others still at large and indecently asaulted Judith Nwachima by touching her on her breast while she was on her way to a clinic.

Ehizoba said while Mudashiru was assaulting Nwachima, two of her relatives, Stanely Chinedu and Asoiba Chinedu, came to rescue her but Mudashiru stabbed them on the head, neck and arm with a broken bottle.


ARRESTED : Nigerian nanny force-feeds baby to death in U.S

Oluremi Adeleye, a 73 nanny convicted of murder in the U.S. for force-feeding a baby milk has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

According to Washington Post, the septuagenarian was found guilty of child abuse and second-degree murder by Prince George’s County Circuit Court, Judge Karen Mason.

“While I don’t find the defendant is an evil-intentioned baby slayer, I also don’t find her actions were accidental.” Mason said before handing down the sentence.

Prince George’s County prosecutors argued that the nanny unscrewed the lid of a baby bottle and poured nearly eight ounces of milk down 8-month-old Enita Salubi’s throat.

Adeleye, a native of Nigeria, testified in her own defense at her trial that she was “cup-feeding” the baby to ensure it didn’t go hungry, a custom in her home country.

She and her attorneys said that she did not mean to hurt the child and that Enita’s death was a “tragic accident.”

Adeleye had others testify in her defense, saying that cup-feeding — pouring liquid in one’s hand to feed children when they do not want to eat but need to be fed — was common in Nigeria.

“Please forgive me. I didn’t mean to kill your child,” Oluremi said in court on the day the judgement was delivered.

The child had roused the nanny from a nap, and the girl essentially drowned in milk while in Adeleye’s care in Glenarden on Oct. 24, 2016, prosecutors said at trial.

Enita’s mother, Nikia Porter, said at the sentencing that she moved from the South Side of Chicago to escape gun violence that could have put her family in danger.

“I didn’t want to lose my child to a stray bullet…. I lost her to a formula.”

Adeleye, opted for a bench trial, in which a judge weighed her fate instead of a jury.

In finding Adeleye guilty of all the charges against her, Mason said Adeleye lied to homicide detectives in recorded interviews about whether she unscrewed the cap of the bottle to feed the child.

The shifting story, Mason said, demonstrated a “consciousness of guilt.”

He told the court on Wednesday that it was true that he attempted to rape the minor.

“I took her to the bush with intention to have carnal knowledge of her but I changed my mind and did not go ahead with it,” he said.

He pleaded for leniency over the attempt to defile the girl,which according to a first information report (FIR) read to the court, occurred on April 24, 2019.

The case is being prosecuted by the Nigeria Police against the suspect.

The suspect was returned to prison custody as the presiding Judge, Hon Umaru Isah, adjourned commencement of hearing of the case to next Wednesday, May 1


An Ikeja High Court on Tuesday sentenced a 36-year-old woman, Stella Gilbert, to death for stabbing her neighbour, Mrs Stella Godwin, to death during a fight at their residence in Ajegunle, Lagos.


The convict stabbed the deceased on the chest and arm with a knife during a fight.

The fight was reportedly over a bench in the premises of their single room apartments also known as ‘face-me-I-face you’.

The melee was caused by an argument over who should be using the bench belonging to their former neighbour.

Murder contravenes Section 221 of the Criminal Law of Lagos 2011 and is punishable with death by hanging.

Justice Raliatu Adebiyi sentenced Gilbert after dismissing her claim of self defence.

The judge held that the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.

She said,

“The defendant in this case used a knife on the deceased; by any standard, a knife is a lethal weapon.

“The evidence of Prosecution Witness 2 (PW2) , the cousin of PW1 (the deceased’s husband), and that of PW3, the female police officer, was that the deceased was stabbed on the chest.

“The coroner’s report tendered in evidence confirmed that the deceased was stabbed on the chest. The chest is where the heart is; the defendant, by stabbing the deceased on the chest, a very fragile part of the body, clearly intended to cause the most harm to her.

“The death of the deceased occurred as a result of grievous injury caused by the defendant. The defendant is culpable of the offence of murder.”

However, the judge remarked that a lot of cases in courts were caused by animosity and violence due to individuals living in close proximity in

the metropolis. She said that the situation called for improvement in social housing in Lagos State.

“From the evidence, the fight took place in a room; though no evidence was given about the size of the room, it could not have been a very large room.

“The evidence was that the deceased and the defendant lived in a house consisting of rooms occupied by families popularly called ‘face-me-I-face-you’. It is worrisome that the level of violence, unnecessary animosity and death, which occur among our citizens as a result of living together in close proximity without sufficient personal space and boundaries, remain unabated.

“There is clearly a need to improve social housing and living conditions. The court hopes that this message will be conveyed to the necessary authorities through prosecutors who have the responsibility to prosecute these cases and should be able to provide vital statistics,” she urged.

Following the conviction of the Gilbert, her counsel, Mr Y. E. Yusuf, prayed the court to temper justice with mercy.

“The defendant has been in detention for six years; during that time, she lost both parents and her brother. She is in her late 30s and unmarried, she has gone through a lot.

“She was not harbouring the intent to murder when the incident occurred. I want my lord to temper justice with mercy and refrain from giving the defendant the maximum sentence,” Yusuf had urged the court.

However, the judge passed death sentence on Gilbert.

“The defendant, Stella Gilbert, is hereby sentenced to death. May God that grants life have mercy on your soul,” she said.

On hearing the sentence, Gilbert collapsed on the dock crying loudly.

In her tears, she was led out of the courtroom and had to be carried by a mobile policeman and a prison warden out of the court complex to avoid disruption of proceedings in other courtrooms due to the commotion.

According to the state counsel, Mrs O. R. Ahmed-Muili, the convict murdered Godwin, mother of three, on June 22, 2013, at No. 59, Ojora St., Ajegunle, Lagos.

What led to this brutal assault on the police officer is still not known but from the video, he seems to have done something to piss off the residents.

The law will definitely deal with these residents of Amasaman just as the Trotro driver and mate after they assaulted the police officer for doing his job.
