Nigerian Law School audit uncovers N32m annual payment to an unnamed cleaner and N36m dressing allowance for staff

The Office of the Auditor-General of the Federation has uncovered financial infractions in the records of the Nigerian Law School.

A burglar will spend the rest of his life in prison for sexually assaulting and murdering an 89-year-old widow after breaking into her home.

23-year-old Reece Dempster admitted to the sex attack on Dorothy Woolmer during his trial at the Old Bailey, and was handed a life term with a minimum term of 34 years.

The sex attack and the brutal murder reportedly happened in Tottenham, north London, in August  2019.

The court heard how Dempster forced open the back door of Mrs. Woolmer’s home in a hunt for money to feed his drug habit. After breaking in, he found Mrs. Woolmer in bed and subjected the elderly woman to a seven-hour sexual ordeal, during which she suffered 10 or more blows to the head. 

The attack happened a month after Dempster had gone to complete gardening work for the pensioner, who was vulnerable following the death of her husband. 

A pathology report found she was still alive during the sexual assault.

The thug, who was high on gin and crack, battered Mrs. Woolmer, who had bone condition osteoporosis, until she died.

Her lifeless body was reportedly found bloodied and semi-naked in bed, by her sister and a close friend who became wrorried after the ‘independent and feisty’ pensioner failed to answer the door or respond to any phone calls.

During his sentencing , Mr. Justice Edis said to Dempster: ‘I have no doubt your behaviour was influenced by your consumption of drink and crack cocaine, but that does not excuse what you did.

‘Actually, it makes it worse. ‘She (Mrs Woolmer) was tiny and defenceless and you knew that. Because of you, she died an unimaginably dreadful death. 

‘You seemed to have killed her for pleasure in your drunken state, the murder involved sexual or sadistic conduct. You are a very dangerous man.’
