Men from the Ogun State Police Command arrested Samson Ogundele, a herbalist from the Referefu area of Oja Odan, for allegedly having illicit carnal knowledge of a young girl (name withheld) who came to his residence for consultation.

The suspect was apprehended after the victim filed a report at the Oja Odan divisional headquarters, stating that she is a hairdressing apprentice and that a sum of one thousand naira went missing in their shop, prompting all nine apprentices to consult the herbalist to determine who stole the money among them.

When he arrived at the herbalist, he began summoning them into a room one by one after collecting #700 from them.

The complainant went on to say that the first and second people came in and out, and when it was her turn, she got in and the herbalist tried to rape her.

Following her allegation, the DPO Oja odan division, CSP Gabriel Ikechukwu, directed his detectives to pursue the culprit, who was apprehended.

During the interrogation, one of the 17-year-old females confessed that the herbalist had already had carnal knowledge of her when she met him in the consulting room. She went on to say that the herbalist threatened her with death if she told anyone.

The victim was rushed to General Hospital Oja Odan, where the on-duty doctor confirmed that the girl had been violated.

DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police command’s spokesperson, confirmed the occurrence, saying the herbalist had confessed to the crime.

He went on to say that the state Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered that the suspect be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and prosecution.
