A welder is currently on the run after allegedly raping a 19-year-old SS2 girl in Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The welder, Korede Adewumi was said to have fled his home after he was accused of raping an SS2 girl who was hawking ‘aadun’ around Olubuse area of Ile-Ife.
The incident happened on Friday, July 3, when the welder allegedly pretended he wanted to buy her snacks then lured her into his house where he raped her.
The landlord reportedly heard the girl’s screams but by the time he reached out to neighbours for help, Korede was allegedly done with the act.
She was taken to a nursing home where some tests were carried out and the case reported at Aagun Police station.
“The above-named patient came to my facility with the history of forced sexual intercourse. There is bleeding per vagina as confirmed by the clinician in-charge,” the Jesuloluwa nursing home and maternity wrote in a report referring the victim to the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Premium Times reports.
Both the police and family members of Mr Adewumi said they do not know his whereabouts.
