Herbalist arrested for allegedly raping his client in Ogun

Samson Ogundele, a resident of Oja odan’s Referefu neighborhood, was detained by Ogun State Police Command officers for reportedly having illicit sexual knowledge of a young girl (name withheld) who visited his home for advice.

The victim reported that she is a hairdressing apprentice and that a sum of 1,000 naira went missing in their shop, prompting all nine apprentices in the shop to consult the herbalist to determine who among them stole the money. The victim’s report was filed at the Oja Odan divisional headquarters, and this led to the suspect’s arrest.

After arriving to the herbalist and acquiring #700 from them, he began calling each of them into a room one at a time.

The complainant stated further that the first and second persons entered and came out, and when it was her turn, she entered and the herbalist tried to rape her. 
Upon her complaint, the DPO Oja odan division, CSP Gabriel Ikechukwu, detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and he was arrested. 


It was while interrogating him that one of the girls who is 17 years old confessed that the herbalist had already had carnal knowledge of her when she met him at the consulting room. She stated further that the herbalist threatened that she will died if she inform anybody. 

The victim was immediately taken to General Hospital Oja Odan where the Doctor on duty confirmed that the girl has been defiled. 


Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the herbalist himself has confessed to the commission of the crime. 

He added that the state Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has directed that the suspect be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
