A Magistrate Court in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday remanded one Olakunle Owoeye (32) in Prison over alleged r*pe. Police prosecutor, Inspector Bayo Ajiboye told the court that the accused committed the offence on November 29 in the state capital.
He alleged that the accused, on the said date, unlawfully helped a 21- year-old stranded lady, with the intent of helping her till the following morning.

Inspector Ajiboye said the man in the midnight threatened to kill her if she refuses his advancement and throw her body away into the bush since nobody knows her whereabouts.
Following his threat, he said the accused unlawfully r*ped her without her consent, and the offence contravened Section 358 of the Criminal Code, Cap C 16, Laws of Ekiti State 2012.
The prosecutor noted that he had forwarded his case file to the office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal advice. The plea of the accused was not taken as his counsel sought for a short date of adjournment.
Magistrate Modupe Afeniforo consequently ordered that the accused be remanded in prison custody pending the issuance of DPP legal advice.
The case was adjourned to January 23 for further hearing.
