Obesere Speaks on Rape Arrest, Says They Are Lovers

Following the arrest of popular Fuji musician,  Alhaji Abass Akande, aka Obesere, the top act has denied in his statement ever raping Miss Olanike Olaiya, a 29-year-old business woman, rather he claimed she was his lover and they made love when she visited him. Obesere was recently arrested  by the Police in Lagos State for allegedly raping Olayinka  in his Okota residence, Lagos.

However, the medical examination conducted on Olaiya revealed that she was actually raped and the Divisional Police Officer, Isolo,  Adamu Ibrahim, was said to have ordered the transfer of the matter to State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba, for further investigation.

The alleged rape case was reported to the police by Olayinka, a  National Diploma graduate of business administration from Ibadan Polytechnic, The victim, who took the matter to the Police, also narrated her ordeal in the hands of the musician who she said forcefully inserted his ring into her private part after raping her. This she claimed led to her bleeding.  Obesere however claimed he asked her to go to a private hospital for treatment when she complained that she was bleeding, but he was surprised when she reported to the police that she was raped.

“I deal in office equipment and when I contacted Obesere, he asked me to meet him in his family house at Okota.  When I  met him, I  introduced my business to him and he promised to connect me to some of his friends in Dubai who would sell  goods to me on credit. I got to know  Obesere through one of my friends, Mrs Bola Okoro. She told me that Obesere would assist me in my business.

“After the discussion, he started demanding for sex and I refused and when I wanted to leave, he insisted I should sleep over in his house because it was late and he claimed that it was dangerous to go out late in the night in his area. I thought he was a responsible man and I decided to sleep over, but at the dead of the night, he came into the room where I slept and pounced on me. He raped me and afterwards inserted a ring he wore into my  private part  and I started bleeding. He hurriedly  left me in the room saying he had an appointment to fulfil. I could not bear the trauma and the bleeding and I reported the matter  to the police.”

Obesere was first arrested last Wednesday and later re-arrested on Monday March 2, 2014 by the Police at Isolo Police Division, where Olaiya reported the matter.
