Obesere’s Alleged Rape Victim Receives Death Threats; Relocates To Her Village

There are indications that the case involving  Fuji musician, Alhaji Abass Akande, also known as Obesere, arrested for allegedly raping a 29-year-old business woman, Miss Olanike Olaiya, in his Okota residence may have been  transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID.

Sources told Vanguard, yesterday, that the embattled musician preferred the SCID to the  Isolo Police division because the DPO had insisted on the matter going to court. Normally, it is  the Divisional Police Officer at Isolo Division, Aminu Ibrahim, that should have ordered the transfer of the case to SCID for further investigations. But Obesere was alleged to have used his contacts in the police to have the case transferred to SCID.

A police source also disclosed that Obesere found it difficult to pressurize the DPO at Isolo into striking out the matter or persuade the victim to accept a settlement.The source, who craved anonymity, also said Obesere contacted some top citizens to wade into the matter by persuading the DPO to soft-pedal on the  matter but they backed down when they discovered that the police have incriminating evidence against the musician.

Meantime, the victim, Olaiya, told Vanguard yesterday that she had relocated to her home town, Sagamu in Ogun State, where she is currently receiving treatment for the rape incident. Olaiya, who spoke with Vanguard on the telephone, said this:

“As I speak with you, I am in Sagamu, my home town, where I have been  receiving traditional treatment since the incident occurred. I bled for more than two weeks after Alhaji Obesere raped me and inserted his ring into my private part. The incident occurred on February 12, 2013 and I have spent a lot of money treating myself. The DPO, Isolo Police division, took pity on me and refused to give in to Obesere’s pressure to  strike out the case and God will bless him for that. But last week I was informed that the case had been transferred to the SCID and my Investigating Police Office, IPO, at Isolo asked me to come to the station on Tuesday for the transfer.

But when I got to the SCID, I discovered the IPO, who took over the case, one Mr. Jacob, I don’t know his rank, became hostile to me. You need to see how this man treated me. He started by asking me to write a new statement and when I tried to explain that I had written a statement at Isolo division, he rebuffed my explanation and insisted I wrote a new one.

Afterwards, they started threatening me. The IPO, Alhaji Obesere, and some of his brothers, who were present there, asked me to stop the journalists from publishing my story and if I don’t, I will be a dead person. I was so frightened when they said this and each time my phone rang someone would pick it up to know who was calling. Later, they discovered  I wasn’t going to break, then they started begging me and promised to take care of me. Alhaji Obesere even said he was going to take me to the best hospital for treatment.

At the end, I rose to leave and they offered to drop me in my place. The IPO also insisted that I should follow them. Instead of taking me to my area, they took me to Obesere’s house and the woman who introduced me to him was also there. While I was with them I alerted the police at Isolo and told them where I was.

But yesterday, they called after they saw the publication and started threatening again to kill me. I am highly terrified, that was why I travelled back  to my home to get some treatment.”

    You call yourself Alhaji and bad evil surrounded it, well Alhaji is just a tittle in mecca but I was so ashamed that people who sacrifice their heart and soul to one ALLAH are those that will not have the money to travel to that holy land but those with evil heart are always bless with money to do more evil. What do we even gain in sacrificing our fellow mate for money,power,fame, e.t.c. At long or short run we all die one day! shame on you evil doers because if it pleases God you will be buried into sound,white cloths and 6foot, and if not you might be burn without recognation , even die with relatives knowing where your left over was. soon we all be judge with either good or bad deeds, no sinner will go unpurnished.
