A 24-year-old man, Michael Oyejide, has been remanded in the Ibara prison, Ogun State for allegedly raping his 18-year-old girlfriend to death.
Prosecutor, Cpl. Moshood Hammed told the Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court on Thursday that Oyejide and one other at large, committed the offence on January 8 at about 11:41p.m at Ijeja in Abeokuta.
The prosecutor said “At about 8.00p.m., Oyejide, aka MI, celebrated his birthday at Adigbe and some ladies were invited.
“Later in the night, the accused and one other got the victim, who is also a friend drunk.
“The accused and his friend took the victim to his house at Ijeja and they raped her to death.”
The prosecutor added that the accused thereafter pretended to be sympathisers and rushed their victim to the hospital where she was confirmed dead.
“The management of the hospital reported the case to the police, which led to Oyejide’s arrest,” Hammed said.
