A medical doctor, Dr Femi Olaleye, was supposed to be arraigned but refused to appear 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.
The popular Nigerian medical practitioner and cancer care advocate 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 also accused of threatening his wife, who reportedly informed the police about the incident.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State police command has said it is aware. But the state Directorate of Public Prosecutions said it will arraign the medical doctor on Monday.
In a letter of notification titled, ‘State of Lagos vs Dr Olufemi Olaleye,’ signed by the Principal State Counsel for the DPP, Mr Oluwagbenga Alagbe, and made available to journalists on Sunday in Lagos, Alagbe said Olaleye will face two counts of defilement and sexual assault by penetration.
Alagbe said the doctor will be arraigned before Justice Ramon Oshodi of the Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court in Ikeja.
“He must appear before the Honourable Court and also make provision for a legal practitioner of his choice,” Alagbe said
