A MAN WHO took part in imprisoning, stripping and beating a married man because he wanted to teach him a moral lesson for entering his girlfriend’s bedroom has been jailed for six months.

In Dublin Circuit Criminal Court today, Judge Sarah Berkeley sentenced Lucky Shaka (24) to two years’ imprisonment, but suspended the final 18 months.

Shaka, along with his girlfriend Sonia Odusanya (21) with addresses at Thornfield Square, Clondalkin, Dublin pleaded guilty to falsely imprisoning Innocent Wilson at a flat in Thornfield Square on April 12, 2014.

The court previously heard Wilson believed Odusanya was his girlfriend, but that she saw him as just a friend. As a result of this she and two others decided to “teach him a lesson”.

She lured him to her flat before Shaka and another man showed up and began assaulting the victim. They told him they were going to take pictures and a video of him naked and put them up on the internet and on Youtube in order to humiliate him.


Wilson managed to escape out a window, but the men captured him again and dragged him back while beating him up.

At this point another man saw the commotion and asked what was going on. He was informed that Wilson was trying to have sex with Odusanya.

He helped the others bring Wilson back to the flat and took part in stripping him.

Odusanya told gardaí after her arrest that “this wouldn’t have happened if Innocent hadn’t tried to have sex with me”. She received a suspended two year sentence last month.

Judge Sarah Berkele said that the reasoning of the accused was they were dealing with “morally reprehensible behaviour” by assaulting and imprisoning him. She described Shaka as the “most culpable” of the three.

Pieter LeVert BL, defending Shaka, agreed that they wanted to “teach him a lesson” because he was married.
