70 year old landlady raped by truck driver in Ogun state


A 70- year – old landlady at Abule Lemode , Ijoko , Ogun State, has revealed her cruel encounter with a 25- year – old truck driver, Wasiu Bankole , who allegedly barged into her apartment and raped her .

Reports learnt that Bankole , who resides in the community, was drunk when he forcefully entered the woman’ s house around 11pm on Tuesday.

Bankole reportedly overpowered the woman who was asleep and had sex with her .

The septuagenarian told our correspondent that Bankole covered her mouth, adding that she mustered strength to scream for help.

“ The man (Bankole ) came to my house at night .

He forcefully entered my room and raped me .

He covered my mouth so that I would not be able to seek help.

I was the only one at home ; my tenant was not around.

I know him as a resident of our community.

“ I was struggling to resist him but he overpowered me .

I eventually managed to scream and people who heard my voice came to chase him away .

I don’ t know what would have happened to me without the intervention of my neighbours , ” the woman recounted her ordeal .

Our correspondent gathered that one of the neighbours , who came to the woman’ s rescue, Ayoola Oluwasegun , hit the suspect on the back with a stick to let go of the victim .

He was said to have reported the case at the Agbado Police Station and the Divisional Police Officer , SP Kuranga Yero , led a team that launched a manhunt for the suspect .

It was learnt that the team arrested Bankole the following day and recovered his clothes and a torch he abandoned at the woman’ s apartment while he escaped.

“ The suspect was arrested following a report by the victim who reported at Agbado Division that while she was sleeping in her house on June 2 , 2020, the suspect suddenly broke into her room, held her down and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her against her consent .

“The victim stated further that it was one of her neighbours who heard her scream that came to rescue her by using a stick to hit the suspect on his back consequence upon which he jumped off her and ran away leaving his clothes , shoes and torch inside her room, ” the Police Public Relations Officer in the state , DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi , said in a statement on Thursday .

The statement added , “ On interrogation , the suspect confessed to committing the crime but claimed to have acted under the influence of alcohol .

The victim has been taken to the hospital for medical attention.

“ Meanwhile , the Commissioner of Police , CP Kenneth Ebrimson, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to anti – human trafficking and child labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and diligent prosecution . ”

Bankole in a chat with our correspondent admitted to being drunk but denied raping the woman. “ I swear , I didn’ t have sex with the woman, ” he declared .

Asked how his belongings got into the woman’ s apartment, he said he had no idea.

He stated , “ It was some vigilantes who beat me with sticks .

I am a truck driver.

The only thing that is not clear to me is how my clothes got into her room .

It appears someone wanted to frame me up.

I was drunk but I didn’ t have sex with her .

I knew the woman through my landlady .

She normally visits my landlady . ”

Oluwasegun , explained that he caught Bankole molesting the old woman.

He said , “Around 11pm , the woman’ s neighbour came to call me and some youths that she (the victim ) was in distress .

When we got there , we met the man (Bankole ) on top of the woman.

I used a stick to hit him on the back and he fled.

The mark of the stick is on his back . ”
