A native doctor, identified as Oluyemi Olushola was alleged to have raped a 49-year-old woman, Toyin Bello, under the pretence of conducting medical investigation on her.
Oluyemi, who is already facing a legal tango before an Ebute-Metta Chief Magistrate’s court in Lagos, was accused also of obtaining money under false pretence and dishonest conversion.
The police prosecutor, Chinalu Uwadione, from the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba, told the court that the accused, who is the owner of Sayemi Nature Science Centre in Ikeja, committed the alleged offence in April 2016. He also allegedly collected the sum of N8,500 from the victim.
Olushola however pleaded not guilty.
Following the plea, Chief Magistrate, Oluwayemisi Adelaja, granted him bail and adjourned the case till January 23, 2017 for further mention. [myad]
