The Kwara state Commissioner of Police, Paul Odama, on Friday, paraded a medical doctor, Ayodele Joseph, for allegedly drugging and raping a nurse.
According to report, the suspect was reportedly performing an operation on the nurse in his hospital in Ilorin, Kwara State, when the incident happened.
However, Joseph denied the accusation during the investigation, asserting that the nurse was his girlfriend.
He said, “She is my girlfriend and we have dated for eight years. I trained her as a nurse; I sponsored her to a school of nursing in Lagos and I employed her. How can I rape a lady that I have had intercourse with several times? What else do I want to see in her body? She only wanted to set me up to rip me of some money. Already, she has collected a substantial amount of money, which is with her. She has already collected about N500,000 from me on this issue and she is still demanding more money.”
Joseph, the Chief Medical Director of Ayodele Hospital, Sawmill, Ilorin, was among 13 suspects paraded before journalists at the police headquarters.
