Man who escaped from prison for defiling nine-year-old girl jailed for 3 years
42-year-old man, Daniel George, has been sentenced to three years’ imprisonment for defiling a nine-year-old girl in Akwa Ibom.
George was said to have committed the offence in February 25, 2015, and was charged to court on April 23 of the same year, but he escaped from prison custody.

The presiding judge, Justice Augustine Odokwo, sentenced the accused to three years’ imprisonment with whipping.
“Parents are advised to be vigilant and watch over their female children to save the girl child from the likes of Daniel Silas George,” the judge said.
