A 35-year-old teacher, Bright Asiruwa who defiled an 11-year-old primary pupil has been sentence to life imprisonment by a high court sitting in Benin, the Edo State capital.
Asiruwa, who committed the illicit, criminal, unlawful and barbarous act in 2007 was the victim’s teacher.
Although proceedings on the matter had commenced at an Abudu High Court in 2008, the case was transferred to the Benin High Court for further hearing.
Earlier, the prosecution Counsel, Nelson Okojie, told the court that Asiruwa defiled the pupil at Osazuwa Primary School, Ehor, in the Uhunmwode Local Government Area of the state.
The presiding judge, Justice G. O. Imadegbelo, subsequently sentenced the 35-year-old teacher to life imprisonment, having found him guilty of the offence.
