One Mr Godstime Ekanem allegedly broke into the room of one Mrs Jelila Oyinbo in the Mowe-Ofada area of Ogun State with the intent to rape her.
On Thursday, September 28, Oyinbo, a resident of MTN Estate in Mowe-Ofada, Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State, reported the case to the police.
According to her, he had been sexually harassing her despite warning him severally that she was a married woman.
It was said that Ekanem had remained adamant and continued with his sexual advances to her.
A statement by the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, on Friday read that Ekanem, on Wednesday, broke into the woman’s matrimonial home at a time her husband had gone out.
“On the 26th of September 2023 at about 0800hrs, sensing that her husband had left home, Ekanem entered her matrimonial home and attacked her with intent to have unlawful carnal knowledge of her.
“She struggled with him and informed her brother-in-law, one Michael Oyewole, who rushed to the house to rescue Jelila, while Ekanem hid himself in the convenience.
“Micheal engaged Ekanem in a fight inside the restroom where he got hit by a hammer, sustaining bruises in his hand. Micheal retaliated by giving Ekanem a deep cut on his head with a cutlass,” the PPRO explained.
Odutola further added that Ekanem, while running away, abandoned his mobile phone and slippers in the woman’s room.
“The Police have arrested Micheal Oyewole, while Ekanem has been taken to hospital for medical attention,” the statement added.
