The Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution, will on Monday, arraign a 57-year-old medical doctor of Optimal Cancer Care Foundation, Dr. Femi Olaleye, for the alleged defilement of his wife’s 15-year-old niece.
This was made known in a letter of notification titled, ‘State of Lagos vs Dr. Olufemi Olaleye’, signed by the Principal State Counsel for the DPP, Mr. Oluwagbenga Alagbe, and made available to journalists on Sunday, in Lagos.
Alagbe said that the arraignment would be before Justice Ramon Oshodi of the Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court in Ikeja.
Olaleye will be facing two counts of defilement and sexual assault by penetration.
“He must appear before the Honourable court and also make provision for a legal practitioner of his choice”, Alagbe said.
The council also said a copy of the information papers and proof of evidence was attached to the notification of arraignment already sent to the accused.
The Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Agency had taken over the case for further investigation and after the investigation, the DSVRA recommended the doctor for trial and forwarded the case file to the DPP.
Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw, had called out Olaleye for molesting a minor.
The minor is the wife’s niece who was staying with them.
People had taken to Instagram to share their experience with the doctor and stated that it was not his first time. They prayed for justice to be done to the medical practitioner.
