Femi Kolajolu has been arrested for allegedly raping and impregnating his 15-year-old niece. His wife also accused him of attempting to rape their daughter in November, 2015. The victims recounted her experience thus:
“The first time it happened, I was sleeping. My uncle entered my room and forcefully slept with me. The second time he did it, I was sleeping in my room with my younger sister. He opened the gate, covered my mouth and slept with me. .
At that time, my mother was in hospital, ill. Last June, I realized I had missed my period but I did not know what caused it. It was after my mum took me to the hospital that we were told I was three-months pregnant.
I intend to sit for my Junior School Certificate Examination, JSCE, next
month. Since my father died last year, my uncle took everything he gave us. My mum was left with nothing to cater for the six of us.” .
Femi’s wife, Ndidi, said that she was not surprised to hear that her
husband was accused of rape, saying “he almost raped our 14-year-old first child, last November. In December 2015, he said I and his 5 children (all girls) should not visit him again because he has another woman who has given him a son.”
Femi Kolajolu, however said he did not know anything about the pregnancy and the alleged rape. His words: “Even if my wife and I are at loggerheads, this is not the right way to solve it. I have never entered their room. Why will I sleep with my niece or my own daughter?” Vanguard gathered that Femi had allegedly been raping his niece since 2013 and instructed her not to inform anyone.
Lagos State Domestic Violence and Sexual Response Team, DVSRT, Coordinator, Mrs. Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, said the government had demanded for the duplicate of the case file to commence prosecution.
