An Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court on Tuesday sentenced the embattled Medical Director of Optical Cancer Care Foundation, Dr Olufemi Olaleye, to double life imprisonment for defiling a 16-year-old wife’s niece.
Justice Rahman Oshodi held that the prosecution proved the two counts of defilement and sexual assault by penetration against Olaleye.
Oshodi said that the evidence adduced before the court against the defendant was compelling and proved beyond reasonable doubt.
According to him, the defendant’s confessional statement, which he made before his lawyer, Mr Olalekan Buruji and the DPO of Anthony Police Station that he regretted his act, proved that he committed the offences.
The judge said that the oral statement the defendant denied had the NBA seal of Buruji on it, and his denial did not hold water.
“You are a dangerous offender and you must be ashamed,” he said.
Recall that sometime in December 2022, the wife of the managing director of Optical Cancer Care Foundation, Dr. Femi Olaleye, told an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court that her 16-year-old niece confessed to her aunt that her husband initially introduced her to pornography.
