A female student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, (OAU) Ile-Ife, Osun State, southwest Nigeria, names withheld, has accused a law graduate of Ondo State University simply identified as Ayoola of forcing her to bed against her wish.
But Ayoola revealed that he did not rape her explaining that the allegation was as a result of her nude pictures he took before they made love adding that she has been his girlfriend for over four years and this was their first time of making love.
It was reliably gathered that the lady had visited her lover at his aunty’s house located outside the OAU campus before he allegedly had sexual intercourse with her forcefully.
According to the victim, when she visited Ayoola on 26th March, 2014 at about 2:pm, she had greeted his aunty and grand mother and four other labourers working in the compound before Ayoola led her to his room which she claimed was far from where the six people she greeted were.
The lady who further explained that her lover wore condom before raping her after her pleas proved abortive said she screamed for help but her voice was too tiny to alert people to the scene of the incident.
She also said that Ayoola had removed her leggings and pants before penetrating her disclosing that he took her nude pictures seven times and threatened to upload it on social media should she reveal what happened to people.
But the victim dared Ayoola’s alleged threat by reporting the matter to the institution’s Students’ Security Committee who swiftly invited Ayoola for questioning on campus.
Ayoola was said to have received severe beaten in the hands of members of the Students’ Security Committee before he revealed his own side of the saga.
The Law graduate had told the committee that they both made love but noted that the lady cooked up the rape allegation because he had took her nude pictures before they made love. He explained that he had been visiting the lady at her hostel on campus before he requested that she should also visit him.
He then said that he had deleted the pictures consequent to her wish stressing that she was apparently not convinced of his deletion of the pictures which brought about the allegation.
The Students’ Security Committee freed Ayoola after quizzing him and members of the committee checked his phone and found no nude picture there.
