Akwa Ibom State High Court in Uyo had sentenced a 36-year-old commercial motorcycle operator locally known as “okada” to 20 years in prison for raping a 13-year-old girl.
The convict, Anietie Bassey Etim, a native of Ikot Itie Udung in Nsit Atai Local Government Area, was said to have taken the victim who boarded his motorcycle to a church on a lonely path, where he defiled her, consecutively.
Justice Gabriel Ette in his judgement found the rapist guilty and committed him to 20 years in prison.
“You are to spend the next 20 years in prison, having been found guilty of rape.” Justice Ette ruled.
