“I had sex with her, but I didn’t rape her” – Obesere

Popular Fuji musician, Abass Akande, aka Obesere has debunked the allegation that he raped a 29-year-old business woman, Olanike Olaiya.


He says it was a setup calculated to smear him and destroy his career.

During a programme – Wazobia – on MITV today, the fuji artiste said Ms. Olaiya cooked up the allegation.

Admitting that he knows her, Obesere said the woman visited him at home, requesting to be appointed a marketer for ”Obesere” rice.

Obesere also admitted having sex with the woman to extort ten million naira from him but denied raping her.

“She visited me at home at night and it was too late for her to return to her place. I won’t lie about the fact that we had intimate encounter. But I did not rape her. And it was about four or five days after she visited me that she went to the police to allege that I raped her.

I went to the police station but when I realized that the officers there were favouring her as a complainant, I requested them to transfer the case to the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, Lagos.

“There, they asked her for evidence that she was raped. There was no injury on her. Her clothes were intact. When she couldn’t produce evidence, the police advised her not to attempt to blackmail me. They advised her to gently approach me and ask for help if she wanted anything.

“When she first called me to say she was feeling sick, I called the woman who introduced her to me to take her to hospital. But Alhaja said nothing was wrong with her, that she was only trying to extort me. Alhaja said she planned to blackmail me into parting with between five and ten million naira.

“I can tell you my enemies are behind the allegation. They are trying to bring me down. But they won’t succeed because I’m a child of God, a messenger of God. Once God remains behind me i have nothing to fear.

“I’m a responsible man, a reliable man. But I’m human and therefore fallible. But I’m not losing sleep about this allegation. I’m undeterred and I’m going about my business because I have no doubt that the truth will prevail” he explained.
