Rape: ‘How My 13-year-old Niece Was Defiled By Welder’- Witness


Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye of the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja yesterday heard how a 32-year-old welder, Adewunmi Adesuyi allegedly defiled 13-year-old girl.

The witness , Mrs Mojisola Oyelola, who claimed that the victim is her younger sister’s daughter, also said she had never met the culprit until the incident, which occurred in 2014.

Adesuyi whose address is unknown, is facing a one count charge of defilement and is currently remanded in prison custody.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Oyelola, a petty trader, while being led in evidence by the prosecutor, Mr Jide Boye, told the court that, on the day of the incident she prepared wheat meal for her family as dinner but that her niece said she was not interested in the meal.

“I gave her money to buy rice. She left the house about 7.30pm. and at about 9pm when she had not returned, I became very worried.

“A few minutes after 11p.m., the neighbours returned with her and I asked where she went and she told me that she was waylaid on her way to the canteen and taken away by someone. She told me that she was taken to an uncompleted building and raped by a welder who was known to her but not to me.’
