A 27-year-old man, Adam Kunle, who is currently being investigated by the Ogun State Police Command for raping a 38-year-old woman, said on Thursday, that he raped the victim because she refused to date him at Makogi area of Ibafo, Ogun State.
Kunle who lived in the same neighborhood with the victim said he admired the woman and had been making passes at her for quite some time without success as she kept rejecting his offer.
Kunle, who confessed to the crime, said:
“I have been making advances to the victim for quite some time. Unfortunately, she has been rejecting my offer.
So on that day, when the opportunity came, I took advantage of the lady since she was the only person at home, so I had my way with her.
While she was sleeping in her room at about 12:30 in the afternoon, I sneaked into her room and forcefully had unlawful carnal knowledge of her against her wish because we live in the same vicinity.”
It was gathered that after the victim reported the incident at Ibafo Police Station, the Divisional Crime Officer (DCO), Ibafo Police Station, SP Akindele Andrew, quickly led detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested.
According to the Police Public Relation Officer, the suspect would be transferred to the Anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the State criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
