Obesere Accused Of Rape,Arrested By Police

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.”

It was 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.

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

  1. Bros if na true say u rape, then u no try. In d first place, why should u even fuck a common street girl with ur kind of personality? I am disappointed in you bcos I truely thought u were a responsible man. Walahi u no try

  2. Ritualist people! Day of reckoning is coming. Be he prepare to give account of ur dids. There is no justice for poor people again. If u fail to do what u are capable of doing, rememeber u will not run away from the judgement.

  3. I am highly disappointed u abass omo rapala obesere. D matter shld be thoroughly investigated if d man is found guilty he shld be prosecuted. Most of these musicians are ritualist, dey all want to be famous and dey wil do anytin to achieve dat. God wil judge u all. Jesus is lord.

  4. I dont know y people jump in to conclusions without finding out wht the exact problem s is
    Judge not so dat u wil not be judge ok

  5. In dis case I blame †ђe lady Fǿя̩̥̊ goin 2 his house @nigh for business n also agreein 2 spend †ђξ night! Wot was she expecting. She brought †ђξ calamity upon herself
