The convict was first arraigned on February 2022 on two counts of rape and defilement along with s3xual abuse and exploitation.

Pastor Famakinwa was said to have committed the offence on April 13, 2021, at Ayetoro Street, Ayede Ogbese, Akure North local government area.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges.


The Prosecutor, H.M Falowo, informed the court that the defendant had unlawful sexual intercourse with the victim which resulted to pregnancy.


The victim had told the court that Famakinwa s3xually abused her three times in his room and in the market stall at night.

Justice Fasanmi, in his ruling, held that the denial of the convict of being responsible for the pregnancy was an afterthought.

The Judge condemned the convict’s act for impregnating the poor girl and turning her to a struggling single mother.

“The defendant’s conduct, his admission of the crime to the Divisional Police Officer at Ayede Ogbese on October 17, 2021 in his voluntary confessional statement to be responsible for the pregnancy and other evidence of the prosecution amounted to sufficient corroboration that the defendant committed the offence.


“Based on the above and in strict adherence to the provisions of the law, I have no alternative than to sentence the defendant accordingly and I so hold.”

“Though the defendant appeared remorseful in court, he is convicted as charged and sentenced to 18 years imprisonment.
