Popular fuji music star, Alh Abass Akande, famously known as Obesere, has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping a 29-year-old business woman, Olanike Olaiya, in his Okota residence in Lagos, Vanguard newspaper reports.
According to the victim (Olaiya), who holds a National Diploma in” Business Administration” from Ibadan Polytechnic, “I got to know Obesere through one of my friend, 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 Lagos. When I met him, I told him the kind of business i deals with and he promise to link me with some of his friends in Dubai that would sell good to me in credit. After the discussion he started demanding for sex and I refuse, when I wanted to leave, he insisted I should sleep over because it was late and he claimed that it is dangerous to leave his area in the night. 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 I slept and pounced on me.
He raped me and afterwards inserted a ring he wore into my vagina and I started bleeding. He hurriedly left me in the room saying he had an appointment to fulfill. I could not bear the trauma and the bleeding so I reported to the police.
“The paper gathered that Obesere was first arrested last wednesday by the police at Isolo police Division, where Olaiya reported the matter. He was subsequently release on administrative bail. He was latter re-arrested on monday when medical examination conducted on Olaiya revealed that she was raped, and the Diviision Police Officer, Isolo, Adamu Ibrahim, was said to have ordered the transfer of the matter to State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, panti, Yaba Lagos, for further investigation.
Police source 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 private hospital for treatment when she complained that she was bleeding, but he was surprised when she reported to the police she was raped. Speaking with News of the People however, an insider quoted Obesere’s management company to have described the entire scenario as being political. All efforts to speak with the singer however proved abortive as he did not respond to text messages and phone calls.
