The publicist to Fuji star, Abass Akande Obsere who was accused of raping a 29-year old business woman, Miss Olanike Olaiya, Deola Adeoti has described the allegation as a grand conspiracy to tarnish the image of his client.
Reacting to the arrest cum release of his client by the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, Lagos, during the week, Adeoti said, given Obesereâ€™s status as a music star with a lot of female fans, he couldnâ€™t have committed the crime, he was accused of.
According to him, â€œObesere came in contact with this lady, Miss Olanike Olaiya, on February 5, 2014 in Ibadan through his old friend, Bola Okoro for an ongoing business project tagged â€˜Obesere Rice.â€™ She is supposed to be one of beneficiaries of the project as a marketer.â€
â€œDuring their business discussion, she came to Obesereâ€™s Lagos residence in Okota on February 10, 2014. Obviously, an intimate relationship between two consenting adult had developed between them. Awed by Obesereâ€™s famous celebrity image, she was all over him, entering every nook and crannies of his house like the woman of the house, and even offering to do the cooking, and making several advances for a romantic relationship with the Fuji star. One thing led to the other, and she offered to stay the night in the cozy environment.â€
â€œAfter having a swell time, she departed the following day with smiles. But to Obesereâ€™s utter surprise, he got an invitation from the Isolo Police Division that a girl who departed happily from his house has reported him for rape, four days after her departure. To him, it was a laughable matter.â€
â€˜Obesereâ€™s rape scandal is a grand conspiracy.â€
Obesere was arrested last Wednesday but was later released on bail. On Monday, he was arrested again after a medical examination revealed that Olanike was raped.
The Fuji star admits they are lovers and had sexual intercourse when she visited him. Meanwhile, narrating her ordeal, Olanike insisted that Obsere raped her and afterwards inserted a ring he wore into her private part as she started bleeding. â€œHe hurriedly left me in the room saying he had an appointment to fulfil.
I could not bear the trauma and the bleeding as I reported the matter to the police,â€ Olanike said.
