The Ekiti State Police Command has arrested one Durodola Ogundele, a sixty-five-year-old for allegedly raping his stepmother.
Ekiti State Police spokesman, Mr Sunday Abutu, confirmed the arrest of the suspect by the Ido-Osi Divisional Headquarters of the command for allegedly raping his stepmother twice in a statement released on Thursday, June 17.
Abutu explained that Ogundele is a son to the victim’s late husband, who had first carnal knowledge of the 85-year-old woman in her room on June 15.
According to him, the suspect, on that fateful day, entered the victim’s room to assist her in applying herbal medicine on her legs to ease her pain.
“The victim alleged that after applying the herbal medicine on her legs, the suspect forcefully had sexual intercourse with her twice,” Abutu said.
He said the Ekiti police commissioner, Mr Tunde Mobayo, had ordered that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for proper investigation and charged to court accordingly if found guilty.
