Lagos doctor arraigned for raping wife’s niece

A medical doctor, simply identified as Olaleye, will be arraigned on Monday 21st of November before Justice R.A Oshodi of the Sexual Offences Court, Ikeja, Lagos State.

Olaleye was accused of raping his wife’s 15-year-old niece who was living with them at their residence in the state after her father died.

It was learned 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 it 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 learned 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.
