An Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court has sentenced a man, Chinaza Abazienu to 21 years imprisonment for indecent treatment and an attempt to sexually assault a 10-year-old girl.

Justice Abiola Soladoye sentenced Abazienu to 21 years jail term, following his plea bargain agreement to a two-count charge of attempted sexual assault by penetration and indecent treatment of a child.

The judge sentenced the convict to 14 years for attempted sexual assault by penetration and seven years for indecent treatment of a child.

She added that the sentencing should run consecutively.

The state prosecutor, Ms Abimbola Abolade had earlier informed the court of a plea bargain application made by the defense, dated June 20 which proposed a 21-year jail term.

The defense counsel, Mr. Donatus Egbe, also confirmed the acceptance of the plea bargain on behalf of the defendant.

The offense, the prosecution said contravenes the provisions of sections 135 and 262 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
