A Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, the Nations capital has upheld the prison sentence slammed on a pastor, Basil Princewill, for raping a 14-year-old girl.

The three-man panel of the Court of Appeal in a unanimous judgment read by Justice Stephen Adah, upheld the June 25, 2019 judgment of Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, which convicted the pastor.

The Appellate Court which dismissed the pastor’s objection to the prison sentence handed to him by the High Court, said his case lacked merit.

In his judgment, Justice Adah ruled that: “Having looked at the arguments in the appeal and the records, as well as the evidence adduced in the case, I hold that the lower court did not do anything wrong by sentencing the appellant to seven years imprisonment.

“The appeal failed and the judgment of the lower court is hereby upheld.”

Further information on the case has it that Princewill was 33 years old when he forcefully had sexual intercourse with the victim between July 27 and December 31, 2011 at Mountain Mover Ministry International and his house in Nyanya, Abuja.

He also threatened to kill the girl should she tell anyone about the encounter.
