Convicting the doctor, Justice Rahman Oshodi held that the prosecution proved the two counts of defilement and sexual assault by penetration against Olaleye.

According to him, the confessional statement of the defendant which he made before his lawyer, Mr Olalekan Buruji and the DPO of Anthony Police Station that he regretted his act proved that he committed the offences.

The judge said that the oral statement which the defendant denied, had the NBA seal of Buruji on it and his denial did not hold water.

“You are a dangerous offender and you must be ashamed,” he said.
