Obesere arrested for rape



Popular Fuji musician, Alhaji Abass Akande,
popularly known as Obesere, has been arrested by the Police in Lagos
State for allegedly raping a 29-year-old business woman, Miss
Olanike Olaiya in his Okota residence, Lagos.
The victim, who took the matter to the Police, also narrated her
ordeal in the hands of the musician whose shows generally fascinate society women. According to Olaiya, a National Diploma graduate of business administration from Ibadan Polytechnic, “I
got to know Obesere through one of my friends, Mrs Bola Okoro. She told me that Obesere would assist me in my business. “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.
“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.”
Vanguard gathered that Obesere was first arrested last Wednesday
by the Police at Isolo Police Division, where Olaiya reported the
matter. He was subsequently released on administrative bail.
He was later re-arrested on Monday, when 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.
Sources disclosed that Obesere’s arrest was made possible through a
warrant of arrest issued by the Chief Magistrate of Isolo Magistrate
Court, Mrs Kike Bukola Ayeye, as he had declined to honour several
police invitations sent to his  house at Johnson Famiye Street, Canal
Estate, Ago, Okota.
We are lovers — Obesere
Police sources also said Obesere in his statement denied ever raping
Olaiya, rather he claimed she was his lover and they made love when
she visited him.
The source added that Obesere 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
