James Onuoha, a former engineer with Exxon Mobil has bagged a 15-year jail term for raping a 14-year-old girl name withheld.

He was handed the jail term without the option of paying fine.

He was said to have committed the offence in 2016 after luring the girl who was 14-year-old at the time into his apartment.

He said the offences contravened Sections 134 (2), 135 (1), and is punishable under Sections 137 and 258 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

Onuoha, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
