A medical doctor, identified simply as Olaleye, will be arraigned on Monday before Justice R.A Oshodi of the Sexual Offences Court, Ikeja, Lagos State, for allegedly raping his wife’s 15-year-old niece in the state.
LENTORLITENEWS Metro had reported that Olaleye was accused of raping the minor who was living with them at their residence in the state after her father died.
It was learnt that the doctor allegedly deflowered the minor after introducing her to pornography.
Olaleye was said to have perpetrated the crime for about 19 months until the wife discovered and reported to the Lagos State Police Command for investigation.
The policemen detailed to investigate the case reportedly arrested Olaleye and the case was transferred to the Gender Unit of the police command, where an Investigative Police Officer, Bimbo Williams, was assigned to handle the case from March 2022.
As proper sanctioning of the suspect was not forthcoming, it was learnt that a petition was written to the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Agency to intervene in the matter.
The agency reportedly forwarded the case file to the Directorate of Public Prosecution and recommended Olaleye for trial.
Our correspondent gathered that the doctor would be arraigned on Monday (today) at the Sexual Offences Court, Ikeja, Lagos.
