An Islamic cleric identified as Abdulsalam Salaudeen, has been sentenced to life imprisonment by the Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court, Ikeja, Lagos State,

Salaudeen was sentenced to life imprisonment by Justice Abiola  Soladoye for defiling a minor who he was teaching Islamic studies.

Police prosecutors told the court that the incident happened in January 2019. The 43-year-old cleric was caught on camera defiling the minor. He was arrested and then arraigned in court where the tape was presented in court as evidence against him.

Delivering judgment on the case on Thursday, October 6, Justice Soladoye described Salaudeen as an unworthy cleric who must be weeded out of society to serve as a deterrent to other predators.

The judge also ordered Salaudeen’s name to be put in the sex offenders’ register.
