This Nigerian guy raped a fashion designer & uploaded her nude photos on the internet

A 30-year old man,  Olaniyan Oluwakayode, who hails from Osun state, has been arrested for raping a 20-year old girl in Lagos, and uploading her pictures on the internet.

The victim (name withheld) from Akwa Ibom State, alleged
that after being raped, Oluwakayode snapped her pictures despite pleas
from his sister to desist from such barbaric act, saying Oluwakayode was
never her boyfriend as he claimed.

“He stops me anytime I am going to work. He
approached me and I told him I was not ready to give him a reply. I did
not go to his house. On my way back from work on Tuesday last week, I
saw someone running out of his house, because there is a bush around
their compound so he jumped from the fence down and held my hand and
said he wanted to do what was on his mind.


“So I asked him why would he do what’s on his mind when I
had not even accepted his advances, he said he would do what was on his
mind today; so he dragged me into the bush. When I wanted to shout, he
brought out a knife and said if I shouted, he would kill me there.


“So from the bush, he dragged me to his house and locked
the door. I tried all I could to open it but I couldn’t because the door
is an iron door and very strong. He used his legs to hold my neck, he
tore my skirt, my pant and my bra. He beat me very well on my head, neck
and body and removed my pant and he slept with me. After he finished
sleeping with me, I couldn’t shout again because he was beating me and
forcing me to open my legs. When I refused, he also held my neck so I
couldn’t shout,”

According to her, when Oluwakayode’s sister came back around 9.00pm, she asked her brother to open the door, asking him if he wanted to kill somebody’s else child.
The victim said when he heard his sister shouting, he took
her to the second room and still slept with her after which she urinated
on the floor.


“His sister then came through the second window and pleaded
with him to let me go, telling him that if she was the person that was
being treated like that, would he be happy about it? I started crying. I
am 20 years old and I work as an Office Assistant and I learnt Fashion
Designing.


“He has been asking me out for a long time. I was
never his girlfriend, I have my own boyfriend. He raped me with pains,
even his sister was crying and he snapped me immediately and his sister
even said she would call his mother because even if she was the one they
did that thing to, he would even over react,
” she stated.
The suspect, Oluwakayode denied raping her, saying she was his girlfriend.


“I was fighting with my girlfriend but they are
accusing me of raping her. I never denied the fact that I snapped her
picture when she was naked. We were fighting inside, but any other
allegation levelled against me is a big lie. The only thing I did which I
do not deny is that I snapped her naked picture.


“We were fighting inside and she has been hurting me for a
very long period and we had an issue which made me delete her number.
Last week, she flashed me. When I saw the strange number, I called the
number back immediately. When I heard her voice, I asked her what she
wanted because she told me that her name was Blessing, until we had the
issue and she said her name was now Comfort,
” he explained.
According to him, he met her passing by in June when he approached her to ask her for her phone number, which she obliged.


“Immediately, I called her and on her way back, she
flashed me and I called her back and we met. She even came to my house
and we sat outside and talked. She agreed to date me. There was a day we
spoke on the phone and she was asking me if I had an apartment, I told
her that I didn’t want to rush into anything, that I wanted to settle
down in my business. I do branding in my house at Ifako.


“They said I raped her, but one thing is that I have a
conscience and she also has a conscience and let our conscience judge. I
believe with all the proofs, the truth is that I never denied beating
her, I did beat her with my head on her face and on her back when she
held my manhood; so all the allegation of bringing out a powder, a knife
and belt, I did not do it because I have a conscience and she has a
conscience, that’s all,
” he explained.
Director of Child Development, WAPA, Mrs. Alaba Fadairo
said the case would be charged to court as it was a case of raping and
uploading the pictures on the internet.

“From here, we are going to  court because it is an
infringement on someone’s right. But it is not immediate because all the
necessary tests have to be done, like the evidence, medical report and
all. The most important thing is to ensure she has not been infected
with HIV. The hospital should be able to prove to us to back up her
claims.
“You do not have to force a person to have your way. It has
to be mutual consent. The most barbaric aspect is that it was done and
it was aired. Where is the dignity of the woman? It shows the person is
callous and wicked and I think we should allow the arm of the law take
its course so that the girl could feel justice has been served,” she
said.
Fadairo said the case would not be swept under the carpet
except the victim herself was opting out, saying government would not
give up.

“That’s why I am going to follow it up to the latter and see that the matter is handled. There is no going back.
“It’s a dent on the victim and it’s not about rape, it’s
about putting her pictures on the social media. I don’t think anyone
will want to opt out. You also know the government has zero tolerance
for issues of child abuse except we are not in the know. He is likely to
face imprisonment, but the number of years is at the discretion of the
court.”
