Oyeyemi stated that the said, since then, she has been complaining of having spritual attacks which always make her to fall down and remain unconscious for hours.
The PPRO said “upon the report, the Area Commander Ota, ACP Muhideen Obe, detailed his family support unit to the scene where the randy prophet was promptly arrested.
“On interrogation, the suspect initially denied the allegations, but when he was confronted by the victim, it was very difficult for him to absolve himself of the allegations”.
Meanwhile, the commissioner of police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has ordered a thorough investigation of the case and that the suspect be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
