Alleged Rape: Court Remands Medical Doctor In Ikoyi Prison
The 57-year-old doctor was remanded for the alleged defilement of his wife’s 15-year-old niece.
Olaleye was arraigned by the Lagos state government on Wednesday.
The medical doctor pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge brought against him.
Remi, the wife of Femi Olaleye, in an interview in October, corroborated the sexual violation allegations against her husband.
She also accused the medical doctor and his family of threatening her for reporting the alleged rape case to the police.
Many Nigerians had taken to social media to call for the arrest and prosecution of the medical doctor over the alleged rape.
Akin Abayomi, the state’s commissioner of health, subsequently revealed that the Health Facilities Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA) had been directed to conduct a “thorough investigation” into the allegation.
The commissioner had said the agency would deploy a team of monitors to Olaleye’s facility to get credible information.
