Ogun Man Attempts To Rape Married Woman

The Ogun State Police Command have arrested a man, identified as Mr Godstime Ekanem, for allegedly breaking into the room of one Mrs Jelila Oyinbo, to rape her.

According to the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Omolola Odutola, the incident happened in the Mowe-Ofada area of the state.

It was gathered that the case was reported on Thursday, September 28, by Oyinbo, a resident of MTN Estate in Mowe-Ofada, Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The suspect was said to have been sexually harassing his victim despite several warning from her that she was a married woman.

It was said that Ekanem had remained adamant and continued with his sexual advances to her.

A statement Odutola read that Ekanem, on Wednesday, broke into the woman’s matrimonial home at a time her husband had gone out.

“On the 26th of September 2023 at about 0800hrs, sensing that her husband had left home, Ekanem entered her matrimonial home and attacked her with intent to have unlawful carnal knowledge of her.

“She struggled with him and informed her brother-in-law, one Michael Oyewole, who rushed to the house to rescue Jelila, while Ekanem hid himself in the convenience.

“Micheal engaged Ekanem in a fight inside the restroom where he got hit by a hammer, sustaining bruises in his hand. Micheal retaliated by giving Ekanem a deep cut on his head with a cutlass,” the PPRO explained.

Odutola further added that Ekanem, while running away, abandoned his mobile phone and slippers in the woman’s room.

“The Police have arrested Micheal Oyewole, while Ekanem has been taken to hospital for medical attention,” the statement added.

Odutola condemned the act, while vowing that the police will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that justice is served.
