Sangokunle Akintola, a 21-year-old native doctor who conspired with his colleague Ismaila Raheem to rape a woman, has apologised, claiming, “I only performed one round in three minutes.”
Raheem, 22, had asked Sangokunle for assistance in carrying out the attack, alleging that his victim had taken money from him and refused to have a relationship with him.
The suspects broke into the house of Raheem’s victim (name withheld) at Kajola Area in Osun State’s capital on the night of October 27, 2021, according to reports.
When the two got at the lady’s residence, they encountered her with her lover and threatened to kill them if they did not cooperate. They dragged the woman out of her room and raped her in turns.
The accused were paraded at the Osun State Police Command in Osogbo, where the Commissioner of Police, Olawale Olokode, told reporters that Raheem and Sangokunle are cultists who terrorized the state’s Oke-Baale region.
He said, “They were arrested after the lady they raped reported them for having carnal knowledge of her and forcibly taking her phone using a fabricated gun.”
Confessing about the crime, Raheem said, “The lady we raped was a girl in my neighbourhood that I admired. She had been collecting money from me before telling me that I don’t belong to her class. She said she was dating people of higher class.”
Also, Sangokunle, who burst into tears begged for mercy while he was been paraded. He said, “I am a native doctor. I followed my colleague to rape the lady after he told me that she collected his money and refused to have a relationship with him. I only did one round with three minutes.”
