CHILD MOLESTATION CASE: Justice Sybil Nwaka Orders For Accelerated Hearing Fixes Definite Dates For Close-Ups.

Justice Sybil Nwata.

Continuing with the “Child Molestation” case between Chrisland School Teacher, Mr. Adegboyega Adenekan and the supposed molested child/mother, the court sat on Tuesday, the 27th of November, 2018, during which the Prosecution called back the Polygrapher to testify in court despite court having ruled out any evidence from polygraph examination as being inadmissible in court on the matter, but the judge, Justice Sybil Nwaka in her wisdom permitted only the oral testimony from the polygrapher.

                               
One of the shocker of the trial was during the examination of the Polygrapher who looked more like an arranged testifier, as the man who claimed to have conducted the test on the accused was both inconsistent and incoherent with his testimony of how the polygraph test was administered on the accused and the conclusions reached. The man displayed a great deal of lack of integrity in his inconsistency and his ignorance about certain technicalities regarding the physiological state of the interviewee before conducting the examination, which is why I assert that he may have either been compromised, or working as a deal partner to frustrate this case which is looking towards the accused being set free after TWO-YEARS of being dragged around for a crime he never committed. 

During the examination by the defense counsel, the Polygrapher exhibited his eagerness to have the accused convicted when he, the Polygrapher inadvertently averred that the accused was shown to be guilty by the polygraph machine despite the Polygrapher's inability to gain mastery of the origin of zone comparison as founded and propounded by Clive Baxter of which the witness (Polygrapher) is totally ignorant of, and as the defense counsel put it to the Polygrapher, “It was a sign of non-professionalism on the Polygrapher not to have first acquainted himself with the examinees vital biography before proceeding with the polygraph examination as there should have been some health precautions taken into consideration before carrying out the test on the accused.

Furthermore, the Prosecution called Woman DSP Ayoleye Adenike to testify and she narrated how Ireti Oladapo, mother of the child, was said to have reported the case and how she and her team swung into action and began investigations immediately, noting that on one of those occasions when the prosecutor was at the police with her daughter and the accused, Mr. Adenekan came around and her daughter ran to Adenekan to hug him saying “HE IS A GOOD MAN” but was reprimanded by her mother who later tutored her to shout whenever she sees the accused, Mr. Adenekan around.

Justice Sybil Nwaka however took a fast switch over the matter after the defense counsel demanded that his time be shifted to another date, being that the Judge had other cases to hear and the time available to him would not be enough to do justice with his cross-examination on the Police Officer, Woman DSP Ayoleye Adenike who was asked to return on another date for her time with the Defense.

Having gone far over TWO-YEARS, the Judge, Justice Sybil Nwaka decided in her wisdom to give the case an accelerated hearing, questioning why the case had been allowed to drag for two years, setting the stage for the truth to be unveiled as the defence is set to take the witnesses on the matter between the 30th and 31st of January 2019, upto to the 1st of February.

The accused, Mr. Adegboyega Adenekan will soon hive a sigh of relief for the chains put around his neck for more than two years will soon be broken, as the Judge, Justice Sybil Nwaka is poised to close this case as soon as she can, even as it is obvious that a lot of issues are yet not clear, but will be revealed as the accelerated hearing declared by the Judge takes effect between the 30th, 31st of January 2019 and the 1st of February 2019.
