A hotel manager identified as Joseph Adeleye is cooling off in police cell for allegedly raping a female corps member at an hotel in Osun State.
The corps member (name withheld) was attached to the hotel which is located in the G.R.A area of Osogbo as her Primary Place of Assignment (PPA)
Adeleye has since been arrested by the men of the Osun State Police Command.
The Corp member was working as the administrative officer of the organisation when the incident occurred penultimate Friday night when she was on duty.
She said: “The manager, Mr. Adeleye requested that I should bring a bottle of beer to his room, after he collected it, he started to inquire about my plan after NYSC, I was not too fine with it because we are in an enclosed room, a few minutes later he started touching me and I resisted pulling his hands off my body, but suddenly, he pulled me closer and turned my face on the bed and put his hands in my trouser and inserted it in my private part.
“He then pulled my trouser from behind, turned my face up, and wanted to penetrate into my private part, I was resisting him. He was too heavy for me, I even bite him, yet, he carried on. I shouted at the top of my voice but no one could hear me because the room was a bit far from where other staff were.
“He penetrated and he poured his semen on my body and pant. When he discovered that I can’t breathe very well, he stood and I ran out of the room.
“The following day, two of my female corps members discovered I was not playing or relating with them very well, they inquired what happened. I couldn’t tell them at first, but when I couldn’t hold the tears anymore, I told them what happened to me and they encouraged me to report the matter to the police and I did. He was later arrested and detained.” The spokesperson of Osun State Police Command, Yemisi Opalola confirmed the incident.
She said: “The corps member was raped on 25th March 2022 around 8:30 pm at the hotel of her Primary Place of assignment. She reported the case to us and we arrested the suspect who is the manager of the hotel named Joseph Adeleye. He is still with us and will be charged to court soon.”
