… Court says he’s not fit to live among human

By GABRIEL DIKE A

Magistrate Court sitting in Kirikiri, Lagos State yesterday sentenced an alleged serial rapist, Princewill Nwogu, to 16 years imprisonment for raping a hairdresser at a hotel in Festac in March.

While sentencing the 32-year-old driver, Senior Magistrate F. J. Adefioye, said his action was a premeditated act, adding that Nwogu was not fit to live among human beings and even animals.

He was found guilty on counts one and two, discharged on three but found guilty on count four.

Adefioye said the prosecution called two witnesses and tendered 18 exhibits, including a video of the defendant having unlawful sex and five nude pictures.

He recalled the statement of one of the victims (name withheld), how Nwogu offered her a drink already drugged and later found herself in a hotel in FESTAC (name withheld) wearing the defendant’s trousers.

Adefioye said the defendant, who under crossing examination, disclosed that the two girls, Blessing and Funmilayo (surnames withheld) were his girlfriends, admitted ownership of the digital camera and invited three other friends as witnesses. The defence counsel, Chief M. D. Ndupu during the proceedings urged the court to discharge his client because one of the victims did not appear in court.

On the four issues for determination by the court, Magistrate Adefioye after consulting several authorities said he had jurisdiction to hear the case, rejected the defendant’s counsel’s argument that wrong section of the law was being applied, the Investigating Police Office (IPO) investigated and tendered exhibits, saying it was not necessary for Funmilayo to appear in court.

Faulting the claim of Nwogu that Blessing consented to having sex, the magistrate observed that since the victim was drugged and was unconscious, she could not have given her consent for the unlawful sex and ruled that the prosecution had proved the case and found him guilty of having canal knowledge of Blessing.

The defence counsel said Nwogu was a first offender and had not been convicted by any court, urging the magistrate to temper justice with mercy by giving an option of fine. Magistrate Adefioye, sentenced Nwogu on count 1 and 2 to one year, discharging him on count 3 and 14 years without option of fine on count 4.

After the judgement, Nwogu was handcuffed by the court orderly, CPL O. Michael and first taken to Kirikiri Medium Person from where he was later transported to Kirikiri Maximum Prison on commercial motorcycle (Okada). Speaking to Daily Sun, Blessing, one of the victims said she was happy to see Nwogu sentenced to prison and thanked God that she didn’t die when she was drugged and raped even as she recalled how the defendant offered him drink.

The counsel watching brief for Blessing, Arit Johnson told Daily Sun that after the second adjournment and the defendant was granted bail, she took over the case, adding “I saw the video of the rape, it was horrible and he even took pictures of the unlawful sex.

    • So now Nigerian police arrest criminal with Okada no police vehicle. What a shame and to Mr rapper. Na viagra you take or what?

      • Ashiwaju-D-Ole on

        This bastard rapper was quickly sentenced because he was not a YORUBA man. I hate all the yoruba judges they have a way to helping the own brothers who are more in rappers.

        Yoruba judges evil men

        • He is very lucky that the offence was committed in Nigeria.If he had done it in china or Saudi,he would by now celebrating with his fellow iGBO who are ritualists in the kingdom of hell.

        • Bro., I am Igbo. Take away Yoruba out of this. All criminals no matter where they come from must be punished. The magistrate must be commended. That animal does not need to live among humans. If I were the magistrate, I would have given him 30 years. Imagine your relation being the person raped. All rapist in Nigeria or anywhere should be dealt with. rape is a serious crime that must not be condoned.

        • Are you also a repper like the condemed animal? You will soon join him in kirikiri because you surport that animal in human´s skin.

  1. Raping a girl while there are many of them in the hotels and Major roads looking 4 a sex partner. Shame on you (Mr Princewill Nwogu). If actually you did it.

  2. The crazy aspect is videoing of his victims, what for? He deserve the punishment. Iwish many more like him will be caught and jailed as well.

  3. tell me one reason why the girl should fine herself in the hotel room with a man or hotel is now a playing ground for kids. she know what she want.

  4. no punishment for the man. Pls help me to find out how old is the girl. if she is below 18 yrs the man need to be punished but if she is above 18 yrs pls free the innocent man.

  5. IGBO!IGBO!!IGBO!!!..-I hate this set of people with pasion,i realy hate them.,they live their life as if there is no God..-they kil for money,land.,they charm for busines,they are number in rapist and paedophile..,they have phd in kidnaping and armed robery and many more vices…CAN SOMETHING POSITIVE COME FROM THIS SET OF BEAST???

    • Yes something good even better comes or can come from them. Rape, kiddnaping, killing, charms and all dat u mentioned comes from d mind of an individual.

    • @ Sam.. Or wot ever u call urself y would u condem a whole tribe bc of one man’s offence all Igbo r not like dt would it b right to condem d whole yoruba race bc one ur brothers was caught raping an animal or didnt u hear d news or bc fulani herdsmen were raping and killing ur brothers in Ogun in der village and dey wer playing cawordise beging d govt to intervene wot is ur problem or didnt u hear abt armed robbery attacks every day in west(lag/Ogun) pls if u dont ve a comment u should keep quiet

  6. @samconquer is very unfortunate dat at dis age pple of ur tym r stil wit us. Meanin dat ur nt fit 2 liv wit even pigs wit ur shalow reasonin of generalization n stereotypin. Hw does dis gat 2 do wit tribalism nw? Ansa m pigeon brain!

  7. Samconquer or whatever you call yourself, that a man was sentence for rape does not mean that every Igbo man is rapist. I know you hate the Igbos but that will never make you better than them. Your hatred is as a result of envy for their success and doggedness. The other a yoruba man raped her daughter and got her pregnant that does not mean that all yorubas are rapist either.I advice you to guide your statements.

  9. True talk my brother. We all know that Yoruba man was killed in front of woman friend’s house. Yoruba man accused of sleeping with son’s wife by son. Make we hear word! Ndi ara!

  10. 16yrs to Mr rapper would have backned with fine so that others in the same institution of Nwogo will lean their lesson or use rope to tie their penis. Nwogo is complete notorious idiot.

  11. @Ngozy, u no no say d tin dey sweet them? Concerning the victims, though am sorry for them, but who knows the number of times these girls( might’ve) collected from the sharp man without service and maybe him no want the name “MUMU” but na him come MUMU pass anything. Yeye man, e recorded him shamefull act, Yeye.

  12. JASPER GEORGE P on

  16. people like samconquer are the reason why Nigeria refuses to develop. I am very sure that an igbo trained dog is better than samconquer or whatever he calls himself

  17. Attah S. Attah on

    Princewill chose to work evil and has received his reward for so doing. Rape, like any other crime in the society, is not limited to a particular tribe, state, region or religion. I do sncerely sympathise with the victims of this heinous crime.

  18. No tribe is holy,but Igbos always spoil anywhere they are.I heard one of them saying on you tube that if they come to Lagos they always make it,my question is,If they are sent back to their villages or they return to their Biafra,will they remain in abject poverty?I
    GBOS ARE CRIMINALS,MORE OF YOU WILL STILL GO TO JAIL IN LAGOS AND OTHER STATES.QED THE MORE YOU COMMIT CRIMES THE MORE OUR LAWS CONVICT YOU. YOU CANT BEND OUR STATES LAW.

  19. Nigerian system are too bad,how can someone ride a convict with okada,is a time our government have to sit up to equip our forces i have never in my whole life heard that a convict can be transported with motobyke to prison what a shame to the authorities in charge.

  20. CALLISTUS NWOYE on

    Nwogu or Nwogugu, you are nothing but a wicked animal. You got a canal knowledge of a woman without her consent, a humiliation of human dignity and womanhood and yet took it upon yourself to reach the zenith of an abominable act by photographing them. You are such are a real darkness in our society. You do not deserve to live among the animal either. That judge is so saintly by giving you only 16 years and what a lucky guy those girls could not remove his scrotum. We disown u Nwogu, u are not a Biafran, chimpase like u, u just resemble one guerilla I saw in Vienna. But girls should be on the alert and stop giving men they do not like chance to get nearer them. They should stop accepting gifts from strange people especially drinks. They should stop consenting to meeting strange men in private places. This is becoming unbecoming in our society. We have a lot beast among humans. Please women should try protect themselves too by avoiding unecessary contact with people they do not know.

  21. South south people on

    Whether we like it or not igbos are greater than we all. We thought the yorubas would challenge the igbo domination(not in politics) but they have failed. Igbos are reaping them in their papas land and they are envious. We SS are no more envious of igbos. We rather copy their strength and leave their weakness. Yorubas are lazy, upon all advantages of war and post war, the igbos are still great.

  22. May God have mecry on him………….I wonder why a rapist who was sentence to prison for 16years, will be on a bike to kirikiri.

  23. Here r my submissions:
    (a) Did he carry them drugged into the hotel?
    (b) they were victims of greed,y would they acept d man’s offer if they wantd 2 deny consent?
    (c) girls/ladies kno where/how u put urselvz.
    (d) if d girls wer takn there drugged/sleepy d hotel counter girls/receptionists shud b arrestd as accomplices.
    (e) crime is indivdual affair n not tribal/communal
    (f) no ‘saint’ tribe/race anywhere in d world.
    (g) dis less-than-animal human being shud b med 2 suffer hdavily 4 his sins
    (h) hey u,pls try 2 decipher d motivz behind gifts/offers b4 acceptanz or rejection
    (i) only true repentance n faith in our Lord Jesus Christ can bring a change in people’s lives.

  24. Before we hail the judge for sending the man to 16 years in jail lets purse for a while and ask this simple questions.
    1) How did the man offer her a drink out side then cargo her to a hotel, did the man carry her like a load ??
    2) I think there is more to this that meet the eyes but the have rushed his case immediately without look deep into it and throw the young to jail for 16 years.
    I PRAY TO GOD TO ADD MORE PUNISHMENT TO THE MAN BUT IF THE GIRL(S) CONSPIRE AND SENT THAT MAN TO JAIL, THERE OWN PUNISHMENT WILL BE WORST THAN THAT OF KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR.
    As for OGBENI NAIJA AND samconquer Igbos do not need your love to survive, since the whole of Nigeria was unable to extinguish the people of the most HIGH, who is shoe shiner like you who cannot even make one correct sentence.

  26. Whatever seed anyone sow, the person must reap it. The man is a beast, he deserve the punishment. Let other men who think they are smart when it comes to woman’s humiliating women think twice, cos day of reckoning is coming.

  27. Make oh na no blame dey guy weather d girls collet money 4rm d guy dey no won com work put u no but waiting i talk blame d guy bsay na d vidoe.bcos if na say na my sister go fuk 4 money like dis i no go sorry forram bcos na she use her leg take enter dere.why d jugde no ask d girl weather nwogu fose her go d hotel.useles country were may God punish dem all.

  28. Its appalling seeung wots happening with d ibo guys these days.There was dis lady dat was gang-raped by about 5 guys n filmed. D guy was igbo 2 n was begging bt no mercy was shown to her.Den d case of Cynthia.I grew up with some igbo guys in my neighborhood n my sister is married 2 an ibo man bt seeing d rape clip of dat girl terribly scared me.I believe raping has a lot to do with a feeling of insecurity.Even if a lady is a prostitute does nt mean she shd be taken against her will.
    This is a terrible malady n d rest of d decent ibo folks shd arrest it 4rm dere mist.It is natural 2 try 2 defend ones tribe or religion.Bt lets face d fact n drop those sentiments.Every tribe has its own ills bt lets condemn dis act in its totality.
    Im totally against raping.You wil never know d terrible effect until it happens to som1 so close 2 u.The trauma lasts tru a lifetime.
    God bles Nigeria

  29. If say na their peple dey 4 stil dey vestigate i do see tribalism well well dey no dey talk d truth my guy no fear u go come back one dey.but 4 dis country d ones wey dey white dey gocome say na blue in d name say i dey rull God go punish dem one by one 4 dis country.

  30. i am not in support of any rapist, but my questions are 1 he gave them drinks outside a hotel, how did he carry them inside the hotel 2 hotel are not for free so who collected money from him 3 one of the victims they said didnt come to the court and was justified by the judge, how do they gather all their evidence then 4 while is it that the victim was taken to prison with okada and one police man as escort 5 is it his first time of drinking with the girls or have they been driking together, rape is a very bad behaviour and i condem it,but i also know that there are a lot of victims of bad judgement in nigerian prisms today. only GOD will save nigeria

  31. The prison is built for this type Igbo man and their types from other tribes.Let the bastard reamain there for life.Another Igbo he goat raped a 13 yr old girl recently in Ejigbo/Isolo area,he was almost lyinched if not for the intervention of the police.By the time they lynch 1 or 2 of these Igbo rapists,the rest of them that rape for rituals will stop it. This Igbo men are known are like that in Lagos,Ibadan,Ogoja,PH,Warri all over.IT IS THEIR WAY OF LIFE,THEY ARE KNOWN FOR IT,THEY USE THE BOOD FROM THEIR VICTIMS FOR RITUALS,JUST LIKE THE IGBO MAN THAT RPED 2 YR OLD GIRL IN OGOJA DID.

  32. In a every crime, there must be an ibo man. They still money in churches, commits all sort of crime for the sake of money not minding that one day they will die and leave all these cursed wealth. What a wasted generation! MAY GOD PUNISH THE WICKED, AMEN.

    • @Ray King, the worst they are into now is raping their grand mothers,mothers,widows and even went as far as zoophilia and the animals are proud to justify their evils and abominations instead of going into their secret places and weep for their shameful acts.

    • you are the most stupid man on earth…instead of me to be a yoruba man is better i become an hausa man but may God forbide…the most dirtiest people on earth,the most stupid people on earth and the highest people in the history of mankind who can do the things unbelievable to the sights of a human being..other tribes are only envying us just because God blessed us with everything you can think ok…can you imagine when you meet a girl in Lagos without any tribal mark ,she will be proud to tell you that she is an igbo girl while she is from the yoruba tribe why/because all of them want to become igbos..even many stupid yoeubas will come and tell you that there mother is from igbo land..hahahaha…have you ever in your life seeing an igbo man or woman claiming to be from another tribe NOOOOOOO…we are blessed from God and no one can change it so all you need to do is to bury your faces in shame idiots

  33. What a pity! Can this serve as a lesson to porno-freaks and unguided loosed girls? ”The heart of man is desperately wicked, who can know it; only God weighs the spirit.”

  34. just looking at his face you will know that he is evil. i think after the 16 years he will learn how to control his destructive idiot.

  35. When I read through the comments here, I cannot help but be reminded that the educational system in Nigeria has failed woefully. 95% of the commentators show an incredible lack of control of the English language, cannot spell and clearly lack logical reasoning skills, resorting to insults rather than debate opinions or facts. Perhaps it is time to simply drop English as our lingua franca.

  36. I wonder why our Nigerian youths are too tribalistic instead of condeming the young man’s action people were busy capitalising on tribe i want to ask is there any tribe in Nigeria that are monopoly of rapist or any form of crime to humanity ? plz and plz we should all learn hw to control our tongue whn it comes to an issue like this because God is watching we will all give account of all our actions one day.

  37. Stop tribalism , and face the fact . Igdos are great people with out Ibos there is no Nigeria , That is why they fight to keep us together.

  38. BRO. CHRIS NKEM on

    Teddy, it is not every thing that happened to the igbos that you people put sentiment to it. As a matured mind and reasonable as i am, I can not generized by saying that yorubas are fond of this, rather, is the rural and primitive yorubas like you can open their dirty mouths to comment evil things against the igbos as if they are the only people in this raping thing.The man did evil where he comes from doesn’t is secondary. You said your sister married to an igbo man, is your sister husband a rapiest? Some of this evil act are individual thing and not tribal or state issues, after all, a yoruba man of about 65 yrs raped his grand daughter at my neighbourhood and so many that is not published in the newspaper.we should stop being sentimental on issues like this.

  39. i kip wond’rng y our voices can’t be 1, we dat r enlight’nd (d youth) no 1 has really made a single sense of nearly 50 comments i’ve read we r just busy attakng n conta-atakn oda tribes on d net, 1 questn i like 2 ask is, a u on d net 2 insult or judge ur feloman ? If yes, den sorry cos u’ve not only wasted ur time even ur hard-earnd money (if truly it is hard-earnd) anoda questn is if d rapist had emanated 4rm abuja would d judge be quick 2 sentence him, i condem rape in its totality, but how many rapists r thr in abuja rapng u n me on daily basis remorselessly, d rcent 1 is 1 ewu, idiot, who opined 13b plus isn’t enuf 4 isi-ewu n ikobi n we r here fightn, how many of dis rapists,pen-robbers’ve been sentenced r dey not alwyz investgtng till d rapists amass enuf wealth n start intimidatng us again? it’s high time we started rsning like educated 1s
