Popular Fuji musician, Abass Akande Obsere has opened up on the rape allegation leveled against him by a lady, Olanike Olaiya, a graduate of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, with whom he has a romantic and business relationship.
According to Obesere in an interview he granted News men during the week in Lagos, southwest Nigeria, Olanike’s rape allegation was concocted to extort between N5 million and N10 million from him.
On the night the lady claimed she was raped, according to Obsere, “We slept together in the same room and it was a mutual consent. We never had any grudges prior to that night and none ensued while we were there.
All she is trying to do is blackmail me. How will someone build a house for 30 years and another person will just try to destroy it in one day?”
Obesere said the lady wrote in her statement to the police at the Special Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba, that she wanted money from him.
On what transpired at Panti, Obsere said: “They (police) said she must have an evidence to substantiate her allegation, but there was no proof that somebody tried to force her and there wasn’t even any scratch on her body to suggest that there was a tussle with someone.
“The officer who interrogated us blamed the IPO who monitored the case from Isolo for not investigating it properly. They asked us to go and promised to call on us whenever we were needed again for further questioning. But they made her realise that most of her allegations were spurious.”
He said he was dating Olanike and also wanted to assist her to take up the distributorshipof ‘Obesere Rice’ which he was importing into the country soon.
Obesere, who is married, said he got to know the lady through a businesswoman who asked him to assist Olanike.
