Still on the Obesere rape scandal! Victim’s friend tells her side of the story

So we are finally getting to know who the liar is!

Bola Okoro, the woman who introduced the Obesere to Olanike Olaiya, has
finally spoken!

According
to Okoro, Olanike Olaiya was not the accuser’s real name but Morenike
Kikelomo and “she had been abandoned by her parents because of her
waywardness.”

Mrs Okoro in a press conference with journalists on Friday in Ibadan, Oyo State stated thus:

“I
have been responsible for the upkeep of Olaiya and her daughter,
Folawe, for more than five years. Olaiya had earlier revealed to me, a
plan to blackmail Obesere for N10 million, but I warned her not to try
such a thing and I thought she had taken to my advice.

Narrating
how it all began, Okoro said

“Obesere is my business partner and I
introduced Olanike to him in order for him to help her with her business
without knowing that she had another plan to malign him. She was with
Obesere on Tuesday and called me that she would be coming to Ibadan to
check on her child on Wednesday, but I told her to wait; that I was also
coming to Lagos for a meeting, and she came to meet me at that meeting.

“I
was not aware that anything was wrong with her until we got to Ibadan,
but I was surprised when Obesere called me that Olanike said she was
bleeding that I should take her to the hospital,” Okoro said.

 “When
I inquired about what was wrong, she told me that if I needed money, I
should support her plan to collect N10 million from Obesere, but I
refused. I told her that I would never be part of that plan before she
proceeded to Lagos and reported the alleged abuse at Okota Police
Station,” she added.

“I have known
Alhaji Obesere for over 12 years and he is a responsible, kind-hearted
individual who cannot hurt a fly. I wonder why he would stoop so low as
to rape or use a girl for ritual when so many girls are out there who
want to have him” Okoro concluded.
