Video of 2 year-old child raped in Chrisland School played in court.


A video of a two year, 11 month-old pupil of Chrisland School, Lekki, Lagos portraying her alleged serial defilement by the school’s supervisor was played today at the Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court.

The video was played during the testimony of Miss Olive Ogedengbe at the trial of Adegboyega Adenekan, 47, a Supervisor at Chrisland School over defilement of a child.

Proceedings lasted from 11a.m. to 3.03 p.m.

Ogedengbe, a clinical psychologist, is an expert in sexual and reproductive health behaviour in children and adolescents.
 She has over 10 years work experience with children and adolescents, the court heard.

The video recording (Exhibit A1), depicted the child, named Child X,  in the clinical psychologist’s office on Nov. 28, 2016 answering questions about the alleged defilement from Ogedengbe and her colleague.

In the recording, Child X was given a sheet of paper and asked to draw the private part of Adenekan, which she did as well as another image with the ensuing questions.

Child X, referring to the other image said:”that is the hand he used to put in my wee wee.

“Ogedengbe: “Where is Mr Adenekan’s wee wee?” Child X in response, pointed to her private area.

Ogedengbe: “Does he put his wee wee in your wee wee?” Child X: “Yes.”

Child X in the recording, using a teddy bear as a puppet, also showed how the supervisor allegedly sexually abused her friend (name withheld).

Kissing the private region of the teddy bear, the child can be heard saying in the video recording “Your bum bum is delicious, your bum bum is sweet, I will eat your bum bum.”

Ogedengbe, before the video recording was played in the courtroom, in her testimony while being led by Mr Jide Boye, the Chief State Counsel, narrated to the court what had previously transpired during her interaction with the child.

She said:”the mother came into my office with a referral letter from the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) and narrated the story and she started crying.

“She (the mother) said she did not know the reason why this was happening to her.

“She said she was usually over protective of her children and follows them everywhere except school.

“She said somebody in her church handed her a book on sexual education for children which she read and decided to practice it on her child.

“That was when the child disclosed that she has been defiled.

“She told her mother that Mr Adenekan comes to take her out of the class and shows her some videos that are sexually stimulating.

“She pleaded with us to help to correct the psyche of her child.

“I carried out an independent psychological evaluation on the child. I asked the mother to sit at the corner of the room and myself and my colleague interacted with the child.

“We did not directly start interrogating the child as that was against the ethics of our profession.

“We started an initial interaction with the child to make her relax and gain her trust.

“When our trust was gained by the child and she was in a happy frame of mind, I asked the child:”who touched your wee wee?” and the child repeated on several times `Mr Adenekan’.

“I was shocked because I did not expect it from a child her age. I brought out my assessment sheet and I told the child to draw any person that comes to her mind.

“She restlessly started jumping around “Mr Adenekan is on my mind” we got her back to being settled but she continued talking without yet drawing.

“She (Child X) said “Mr Adenekan said it is good for a child to put her wee wee in Mr Adenekan’s wee wee” at that point in time we decided to do a recording to ensure her story remains consistent.

“We asked her how does Mr Adenekan’s wee wee look like and she demonstrated playfully by pointing her finger upwards stating “sharpener”.

“We asked sharpener or pencil? She stated `sharpener.’

We told her to draw Mr Adenekan’s wee wee. We want to see what it looks like.

“To my greatest shock and surprise, for a two-year-old child, she drew a picture which symbolises a reproductive organ of a man in the form of a penis.

“I then asked her, show me your wee wee, she pointed at her private part. I asked her to show me where Mr Adenekan’s wee wee is and she pointed at the lower region of her private part.

“By then the child was again getting very restless and she ran to her mother who was at the corner of the room.

“We still wanted to hear more but she was playfully running around and her mother started probing her: “Is it only you he comes around to take out of the class” and she replied no.

“The child said it was herself and her friend (name withheld) so her mother asked her to show us what he normally does with her friend.”The child said he kisses her bum bum and he licks her bum bum, the child demonstrated by using a puppy in the room.

“That was the end of the first interview with the child.”

Ogedengbe during her lengthy testimony said from her evaluation, the mother and Child X needed psychological help.

She said:”Afterwards, I decided to confirm from the mother if the child was exhibiting any symptom of psychological abuse.

“I asked the mother if she observed any strange behaviour in the child and the mother said yes.

“I had asked because I noticed in the course of interacting with the child that the child was occasionally aggressive.

“The mother confirmed this and also stated that the child had sleep problems and had been having nightmares.”She also complained of sexual inappropriate behaviour from the child and that after the incident the child became curious to see naked bodies of people.

“From my findings I found the child exhibited aggressive behaviour, inappropriate sexual behaviour, sleeping problems and fear.

“After the interaction, myself and my colleague realised that the child and mother needed help.

“The mother also exhibited signs of post-traumatic stress disorder.

“We decided to do an intervention and we held two more sessions of psycho-social intervention for the mother and the mother was counselled on how to help and assist the child.”

While being cross-examined by Mr Olatunde Adejuyigbe (SAN), Ogedengbe said that Child X was not tutored on what to say during the interview by either her or Child X’s mother.

“We used projective techniques in which a client projects their subconscious minds on paper.”

The clinical psychologist revealed to Adejuyigbe that she visited the mother of Child X’s friend who was also allegedly sexually assaulted by Adenekan.

“We saw the mother of the child’s friend but she was not willing to get involved in the case because of stigma,” she said.

Ogedengbe also added that she did not interview the staff of Chrisland School, Child X’s father and her older sister. The clinical psychologist also insisted that the child was of above average intelligence.

“Children 0-5 years, are usually not able to form full sentences, the child could string meaningful sentences.

“In drawing a picture, most children her age do not draw meaningful drawings but she did.

“I have worked with children her age from diverse sections of society and she is of above average intelligence,” she said.

On re-examination by Boye, the prosecutor, Ogedengbe insisted that the child was not tutored.

“If a child is being brainwashed or tutored, the child won’t be consistent in answering several questions.

“You will see it in her non-verbal behaviour that she was tutored, there would be no flow of conversation, this child was not tutored,” the clinical psychologist said.

Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011 prescribes a life sentence for the offence of defilement of a child.

Justice Sybil Nwaka adjourned the case till March 21 for continuation of trial.

But things turned dark after Nathan allegedly fell in love with the student and killed his wife so the two could be together.

Man Gets Life Sentence Plus 35 is listed (or ranked) 5 on the list The 15 Most Brutal Valentine's Day MurdersMan Gets Life Sentence Plus 35 Years For Valentine's Day Murder 

Gibson Paul was living with Tomicka Peterson in West Palm Beach. But on Valentine’s Day of 2011 Tomicka decided she no longer wanted to live with Gibson and certainly did not want him to be her Valentine, which is one of the reasons he is crying in his mugshot (yes, that is his real mugshot, not a still from the "why he don't want me man?" episode of Fresh Prince where Will confronts his estranged father).

Tomicka informed Gibson that she would be leaving him, and that she would be moving out of their shared apartment. She then tried to end the relationship and leave the apartment with some friends for safety. But instead of taking a step back, a few deep breaths, and spending some time thinking about how he was to blame for all this... he grabbed his semiautomatic pistol.

He opened fire on the car that his newly ex-girlfriend was in which contained a male driver, two female passengers, and a 3-year-old girl. One woman was grazed by a bullet, but it was Tomicka that took the brunt of Gibson’s rage. She was shot five times and died at the scene.

Gibson was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, aggravated assault, 5 counts of shooting into an occupied vehicle and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Gibson demanded a speedy trial and acted as his own attorney. Naturally a 29 year old convicted felon facing 8 charges would be able to aptly defend himself. But soon after the trial began, Gibson realized he’s not the best decision maker and asked Circuit Judge Karen Miller to have Assistant Public Defender Aaron Ritchey rejoin him and take over his defense.

Even with a real lawyer, Gibson received life in prison on the first-degree murder charge, 20 years on the aggravated assault charge, and 15 years each on charges of shooting into an occupied vehicle and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Which he must have to serve... in the afterlife? Anyway, guy's locked away forever.

Man Butchers Wife In Family Ho... is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The 15 Most Brutal Valentine's Day Murders  Man Butchers Wife In Family Home, A Love Story is Born

This is weird, gross and kind of long, so bare with me here. This is how love happens.

Stephen Grant walked into the Macomb County Police Department on a Valentine's Day and reported his wife missing. Three weeks later they found her torso in his garage. 34-year-old Tara Lynn Grant was killed by her husband in their home in Washington Township, Mich. And this was just the beginning. Stephen said his wife, and mother of his two young children, vanished on the night of Feb. 9. He claimed she returned from her job in Puerto Rico, fought with him and then left getting into "a mysterious dark car".

After police found the torso (yes, just the torso) in the home, they found more body parts all over a wooded area near Stony Creek Metro Park. Stephen did not confess to the murder until after he was arrested, even though he'd previously pronounced his innocence, undying love and concern for his wife. But a former girlfriend then turned over a whole lot of damning evidence including emails from Stephen in which he mocked marriage vows and offered to let the woman, a nursing student, practice sponge baths on him.

He also said he was suspicious about his wife's relations with an old boyfriend and an older man at her work, which probably justified his actions in his own head.

Stephen let the authorities into his home for the search, and then fled the scene. Authorities had to search the area for him, contact relatives, comb his neighborhood and even reached out to his lawyer. "By no means did we expect to recover what we did," said Macomb Country Sheriff Mark Hackel regarding the multiple body parts found around the area.

But then, Justice!

Stephen eventually confessed to the crime and was arrested. While he was waiting for his trial he was housed at the Macomb County Jail.

Bonus:
Also residing there was Jennifer K*kla. Jennifer was found mentally ill, but still guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of 8-year-old Alexandra and 5-year-old Ashley. Police discovered the bodies of her daughters and the family's three pet Pomeranians in their mobile home in Macomb Township on Feb. 4, 2007, about 25 miles North of Detroit. Officers testified during her trial that K*kla said she heard the voice of the devil telling her to kill the girls and the dogs.

But here's the twist: Jennifer gave prison authorities over a dozen love letters that were written to her from Stephen Grant HIMSELF. Grant also wrote two letters to another inmate and four to a woman named Sarah -- though Jennifer said those were in response to letters she had written to him using that name.

Grant told Jennifer he wished they could arrange "a rendezvous in the closet one of these days. :-)" (Yes, he put in a smiley face.)

He also wrote that the "chats" with K*kla helped to "keep him sane" and said he missed his son, daughter and wife, Tara. "I have to tell you that you are the first person to ask if I miss Tara and the answer is Yes," he wrote.

Jennifer said she wrote to him because she and other inmates wanted to know what he would say about his crime.

Grant was eventually sentenced to 50-80 year in prison for second-degree murder of his wife, and moved to another prison away from Jennifer. There is no word on if they still are corresponding.

A love story for the ages.

  Victim's Screams Were Caught On Surveillence Footage.

Tiana Notice, a 25 year old gir working on her master’s degree in communications at the University of Hartford, was dating James Carter II (not Jr., but "the second"). But in 2008 her relationship with James went South so Tiana ended it. James apparently was not happy with this decision. Like, at all. He went a little nuts.

Tiana even got a restraining order against James, but that didn’t stop him.

According to Tiana’s mother, Kathy Lewis, the last months of her daughter's life were "horrendous." She said "James terrorized Tiana and she pleaded with police to do something." But when the police did nothing, Tiana had her father put up a surveillance camera outside of her apartment. That surveillance camera recorded Tiana’s screams as James butchered her outside of her apartment and saw her trying to run away from her killer, but the stabbing itself was not caught on film.

Tiana had called 911 and told them that her ex-boyfriend had just stabbed her and she was bleeding to death. Both the 911 call and the surveillance video were shown to the jury as well as a poem written by Tiana, read by her father.

The poem titled, "Chapter Closed," was about leaving James. She wrote about being released from his "temper, torture, threats, ego, jealously and insecurity." "An empty house in solitude is how he will spend his days," she wrote. "And I rest assured in knowing: I'm beautiful, smart, and on my way!"

James received 60 years in prison and his murder case helped influence changes to the state's domestic violence laws.

4-Year-Old Witnesses Mother's Murder Says “Ketchup is
everywhere.”
 
Ignacia Manriquez was in a relationship with Juan Manuel Navarro and they had three children together, but Juan suddenly ended the relationship in 1993. Everything was normal at first. Ignacia even remained friendly with her ex for the sake of the children, but when Juan had a change of heart, and Ignacia refused to take him back… Juan decided to kill her.

The San Bernardino County deputy district attorney who prosecuted the case, Margaret Bevan, said Juan followed Ignacia to her family's home, "one of the kids allows him to come in because it’s dad. They start to argue. She pulls out a restraining order. He says ‘No piece of paper is going to keep me from you.’ "

He then followed them to a local shopping center, and the two ended up fighting in a parking lot.

"Witness Bradford Montgomery testified he saw the couple arguing near her vehicle. He sees her crying," Bevan said. "Then he saw Navarro point the gun to her head and shoot her. Ignacia was shot at point blank range; she was shot in the stomach as she fell, then again on both sides of her head when she was on the ground according to officials. He shot her in the head at point blank range, then in the stomach twice, then in the head twice again. Most vampires aren't executed to this degree.

Mr. Montgomery was not the only witness to the crime; Juan killed Ignacia in front of their 4 year old son Juanito. Juan picked up the boy and ran with him, an anonymous person dropped Juanito (the son) off at a relative's home 17 days later. When police interviewed the little boy about what happened he said, "Ketchup is everywhere." According to his aunt, the young boy, now 22 "has suffered and will continue to carry the burden of what he witnessed, his mental state is not of a 22-year-old.

He is very insecure, unstable and suffers from anxiety.

He did not finish high school no matter how much his grandparents and family insisted and persuaded for him to continue his education. He just didn’t seem to see beyond the shooting."

Juan took off to Mexico, where he hid for 19 years. But in 2012 Juan was found and prosecuted for the murder of Ignacia and was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison for the murder of his girlfriend, mother of his children.

                       Wife Plans Husband's Valentine's Day Death

Richard Schoeck planned to meet his wife at Belton Bridge Park on Valentine’s Day to exchange cards; it was somewhat of a tradition. And a very endearing one at that.

But at around 9:00 PM that night the police received a phone call from Stacy Schoeck saying she found her husband lying outside his truck and that he had been shot three times in the stomach and twice in the face.

Stacy was not immediately thought of as a suspect until officials did a little research (which is always appreciated). One investigator found that there were some pending life insurance claims totaling $560,000. One of the policies was activated on Feb. 1, and Stacey was the sole beneficiary and on top of that not-so-damning-yet-suspicious evidence Stacy was also having an affair.

So, Stacy conceived of a plot to kill her husband and make off with his life insurance; but she couldn’t do it alone. She recruited her former employee Lynitra Ross, and her personal trainer Reginald Coleman. All three were indicted on malice/murder charges.

Court documents said that Stacey Schoeck, was the planner, Coleman, a convicted felon, was the triggerman; and Ross, who was supervised by Stacey Schoeck at a DeKalb County spinal clinic, acted as their go-between.

An analysis of cell phone records and tower activity, including the one nearest to the Belton Bridge Park crime scene, is what led authorities to the two other people in this crime. According to court documents "All the defendants' locations and communications with one another were documented before and possibly after the crime between 8:40 p.m. and 9 p.m."

The trial for all three suspects are pending.

Man charged with Killing 19-Year-Old claims she hired him to do so.

 
Following the killing of 19-year-old Natalie Bollinger in December, Colorado police arrested Joseph Michael Lopez on Thursday and charged him with first-degree murder.

However, the 22-year-old suspect says the woman hired him to kill her after he answered her Craigslist ad, ABC-7 reports.

He says the ad was titled “I want to put a hit on myself,” according to the police affidavit. The document also reports that investigators found more than 100 text messages between the two on the night she was reported missing.

Natalie was reported missing days after receiving a protection order against a man she alleged w as harassing her. She was found dead in a wooded area late last year. An autopsy also revealed she had a potentially lethal level of heroin in her system at the time of her death.

Adams County Sheriff Michael McIntosh calls Lopez the sole suspect but said the case is ongoing.

He said at a news conference on Friday:

"Just because we have a suspect in custody, doesn’t mean the investigation is over".
