Virginity is Outdated, Says Doctor Who Raped 15-Year-Old Wife’s Niece



A child forensic specialist, Mrs Olabisi Ajayi-Kayode, on Tuesday, told a Lagos State Sexual Offences Court, Ikeja, that a 15-year-old minor allegedly defiled by her aunt’s husband, Dr Olufemi Olaleye, said the defendant told her virginity was outdated.

She stated that the victim also told her that Olaleye, the Medical Director of Optimal Cancer Care Foundation, after raping her, used tissue paper to whip off the blood that came out of her private parts.

Ajayi-Kayode, a lawyer who works with Cece Yara Foundation, said in her findings, she discovered that the child was introduced to sexual activities by Olaleye.

Olaleye is facing two counts of defilement and sexual assault by penetration of his wife’s niece.

The lawyer, who was led in evidence in chief by the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions, Dr Babajide Martins, said the victim narrated to her that the defendant started by putting his hand under her nightgown and touching her private parts.

She explained that the defendant would ask the victim to perform oral sex on him, adding that he usually perpetrated the act in a section of the sitting room not covered by the Closed Circuit Television camera.

Ajayi-Kayode, who testified before Justice Ramon Oshodi as the third prosecution witness, said the teenager mentioned to her that the defendant asked her if she was still a virgin.

She said, “He asked, ‘Are you still a virgin?’ I said, ‘I am’ and he said, ‘Why are you still a virgin? It’s no more in vogue; girls of 12, 13, and 14 years old are no longer virgins. As a medical doctor, I can cover for girls who lose their virginity and get pregnant. Well, the decision is yours.’

“Then he asked her that, ‘Can we be friends?’ And innocently, the girl said she replied that, ‘We are already friends.’

“We asked her if any other person had done this to her before, and she said no. The child said the first time the aunt’s husband had sex with her, it was painful and there was blood and he took tissue paper and whipped it off.”

The witness further narrated that the victim told her that on one particular occasion, the survivor was waiting by the security house based on the instructions of her aunt that she should not be staying alone inside the house, but when the defendant arrived, he asked her to follow him inside the house.

She said, “When they got inside the house, he asked her to prepare ‘amala’ for him. In the process of doing this, he came into the kitchen and took her to his study, had sex with her, and warned her not to tell anyone.

“She said it became overwhelming for her and she started soliloquising that she was tired of what the doctor was doing to her, not knowing that the driver heard her.”

Ajayi-Kayode added, “The aunt’s husband has been engaging the child in sexual activities over a period of time, not just once, and he used threat, and coercion.

“He used his disposition as the aunt’s husband to gain access to the child for sexual activity. And the threat and coercion were to maintain control over the child. He took advantage of the girl’s naivety by telling her that virginity is no longer in vogue.”

After the expert’s narration, the prosecution counsel asked the court to admit the witness’ findings and certificate of compliance in evidence.

During the cross-examination of the witness, the defence counsel, Babatunde Ogala, SAN, tried to fault her evidence, stating that she drew conclusions based on her interaction with the child.

She responded that she also spoke with a psychologist and the police.

When asked if she saw a medical report before speaking with the victim, she replied, “I didn’t see any medical report but the DPP told me about a medical report.”

Further hearing was adjourned till January 4, 2023.

Cynthia Gregg Identifies Quest to Dominate As Cause of Proliferation of Small Arms



By Eric Elezuo

A security expect and Chief Executive Officer, Safety Signatures Limited, Dr. Cynthia Gregg, has identified the need for individuals to have intimidate and dominion over their fellow man as one of the reasons for the proliferation of small arms and light weapons in the Nigerian Civil space, thereby resulting in insecurity and unsafe habitation.

Gregg made the observation while participating as a panelist during the panel session of the 2023 National Security Conference of the National Association of Online Security News Publishers (NAOSNP), on Thursday at the Civic Centre, Lagos.

The security practitioner noted that the issue of small arms and light weapons in the hands of non state actors, has become a major concern to all and sundry as killings abound, affecting both men in uniform and their civilian counterparts in the country today.

“We have noticed that in our society today, the person who carries the weapon is the most feared, and so because everyone wants to be feared, wants to dominate and intimidate the other person, they go to any length to acquire illegal weapons. That explains why when a robber encounters someone, the first thing they do is brandish a weapon or unleash some brutality to subdue their victim. It is the norm, unfortunately,” she said.

She further called on the public to encourage and help the law enforcement agencies to carry out their duties by saying something when they see something, and advocated community engagement to deal with challenges of proliferation of lethal weapons in the hands of non state actors.

Again, Gregg lauded the efforts of NAOSNP in using its platform to propagate safety and security through fruitful engagements with relevant institutions and reportage of credible security stories as well as advocacy through its enviable conferences.
