Supervisor at Chrisland Schools sentenced to 60 years in jail for defiling pupil
Adegboyega Adenekan, a school supervisor at Chrisland Schools, has been sentenced to 60 years imprisonment for child defilement.
Sybil Nwaka, the presiding judge at an Ikeja domestic and sexual violence court, issued the sentence after convicting Adenekan of defiling the 11-year old pupil.
Despite Adenekan pleading not guilty, Nwaka described him as “wicked, conscienceless and an animal who is not worthy of walking on the streets of Lagos. I hereby sentence Adegboyega Adenekan to 60 years’ imprisonment. This is the sentence of the court,” the judge held.
Nwaka went on to give advice to school concerning the welfare of pupils. “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,” she held.
“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.”
The victim had told the court how she was defiled by Adenekan who was then at the Victoria Garden City (VGC) branch of the school.
