Popular Nigerian Medical Director Arrested For Raping Wife’s Teenage Niece
The medical director of Optimal Healthcare Company in Lagos, Dr. Femi Olaleye, 57 will be arraigned on Monday (today) for allegedly defiling a 15-year-old minor, the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution, DPP, has said.
The popular Nigerian medical practitioner and cancer care advocate was accused of sexually violating the minor.
Olaleye was accused of harassing a niece of his wife, Remi, for one year and nine months.
The medical practitioner was also accused of threatening his wife, who reportedly informed the police about the incident.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State police command has said it is aware. But the state Directorate of Public Prosecutions said it will arraign the medical doctor on Monday.
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 Olaleye will face two counts of defilement and sexual assault by penetration.
Alagbe said the doctor will be arraigned before Justice Ramon Oshodi of the Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court in Ikeja.
“He must appear before the Honourable Court and also make provision for a legal practitioner of his choice,” Alagbe said.
Popular actress, Kate Henshaw earlier said Olaleye confessed to him that he did but that she did not know the victim was a minor.
Henshaw said Olaleye’s wife later told her that the victim was a minor and her niece.
The actress who had had dealings with the medical doctor dissociated herself from him following the scandal.
She wrote on Twitter, “For many years I have advocated for women & the girl child. I have worked with @drfemi of @CancerOptimal on Breast Cancer & Cervical screening for many years.
“He has sexually molested a minor. My brand has integrity & can never be associated with such. I no longer work with him.”
