ASABA—A High Court, sitting in Akwukwu-Igbo, Oshimili North Local Government Area, Delta State, has sentenced two brothers, Chukwuedo Mogaha and Amaechi Mogaha to a total of 30 years in jail for gang-raping a 12-year-old girl.

Delivering its judgment, the court, presided over by Justice Marcel Okoh, sentenced Chukwuedo Mogaha, 30, to seven years in jail for the offence of conspiracy to commit rape and 14 years with hard labour for the substantive offence of rape, holding that prosecution from the state Ministry of Justice was able to prove the essential ingredients of conspiracy and rape against him.

Justice Marcel Okoh held that prosecution was only able to prove the count of conspiracy and failed in the count of rape against 33 years old Amaechi Mogaha and sentenced him to seven years in jail for count one, while he was sentenced to two years imprisonment with hard labour for indecent assault on the  girl.

The court held that the sentences are to be served concurrently.
