What is this now! One Waheed Ogundele has been accused of r.a.p.i.n.g a lady (name witheld) in Ologuneru area of Oyo State.
Ogundele was said to have r*ped the lady on the night of Sallah while she went to share food to her neighbours.
A relative of the lady, who identified himself as Mahmud, told SaharaReporters that the rapist absconded while neighbours were trying to take him to a police station.
Mahmud said, “We were going to pray in a mosque when her mother sent her to go and give food to somebody.
She did not come back on time and we had to go and check to know why she is being delayed.
“We saw her coming on the road shedding tears with blood on her body.
“We asked what happened and she said Ogundele r*ped her.
“We tried to hold him down but his friends intervened and helped him escape.”
Mahmud said the case had been reported at the Eleyele Police Command, adding that they were trying to appeal to the family of the victim not to escalate the matter.
Condemning the rate of r*pe in the country, a lawyer, Alexander Atuchukwu, urged parents to educate and discourage their male children from r*ping.
