Two men take turns in raping a pastor’s daughter in the presence of her father

A high Court in Ughelli, Delta State has sentenced two 'notorious rapists' to life in prison for raping a pastor's 17 year old daughter.

In the prosecution's submissions, the court heard that 30 year old Ernest Steve and 29 year old Jerry Godwin robbed the pastor's house on November 5, 2007 and then took turns in raping the girl as her father watched. She sustained serious injuries in her private part.

The rapists had a gun and a knife which they used to subdue the family, causing them immense psychological trauma.

The trial judge, Justice O. Tobi said that the prosecution had proved the essential ingredients of the three-count charge preferred against the accused persons. The court further declined a plea for mercy by the defense counsel saying the mandatory punishment prescribed by law for the offence committed was life imprisonment.

The convicts have been moved to prison to begin serving their sentence.
