Broadcaster in court for allegedly raping former girlfriend


An Ogudu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Thursday slammed a bail of N200, 000 on Otun Segun, 27, after he pleaded not guilty to raping a 22-year old woman.

The Magistrate, Mrs O Sule Amzat, ordered that the bail should be accompanied with two sureties in like sum whose addresses were to be verified by the court.

The defendant, a staff of Cool FM radio station and residing at No 8, Ogunaike St, Shangisha, Ketu, is facing a three-count charge of rape, assault and threatening.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Ihiehie Lucky, told the court that on Nov. 26, the Area F Police command in Ikeja transferred a case of rape and assault to Area H Police Command, Ogudu.

“On Nov 24, the complainant a 22-year-old, name and address withheld, who had just completed her NYSC programme, came with a written petition to the command against the defendant, her former schoolmate.

“According to the complainants’ statement to the police, she had met the defendant sometime in January and he asked her for friendship.

“She said that after much pressure from the defendant they started dating online before she later broke up with him.

“On Nov 23, she went with her friends to Magodo in the Shangisha area and that’s where the defendant sighted her again.

“He came to her and her friends and excused her for a discussion which the complainant obliged to based on the fact that they were former schoolmates and had not been in touch for a while”.

Ihiehie said that they both got to the defendants house which was in the same area.

“When they got to his house, the complainant waited in his sitting room, while the defendant went to have his bath and came out with only a towel.

“He then asked the complainant why she had broken up with him and she replied that she had found out that he was dating her sister.

“He then replied that it wasn’t true that they were only friends and went into his room only to come out with a cutlass.

Ihiehie said that the defendant then threatened the complainant, saying that if she refused him to have sex with her he would injure her.

He said that the defendant assaulted the complainant by dragging her by her trouser, carried her to his room, forcefully tore her zip after struggling with her and pushed her to the bed and had sex with her without her consent.

“When he was done with her, the complainant was in tears while the defendant pleaded for forgiveness for his actions.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the offenses contravene sections 258, 170 and 56 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

Section 258 stipulates life imprisonment for offenders.

The Magistrate, Mrs O Sule Amzat, adjourned the matter to Jan. 27, 2016.

    I have gone through this story over and over again and it just doesn’t add up,the complainant,SALIMA BADANGA claimed 1st class in food and nutrition, Afe Babalola University and she obviously cannot tell exactly what happened, i expected more for a 1st class, this story is obviously cooked up.
    First she claimed she had an online relationship with the guy,then found out she couldn’t continue anymore because he dated her sister Hauwa badanga.
    She said she saw him while with friends and decided to go to his house,why would you leave your friends to see a guy you called a relationship off with,
    She claimed,she was at his house waiting for him to have his bath,were u not with ur friends for a purpose ,why wait in a guy’s house and leave your friends
    I can go on and on but obviously,this lady is just here wasting our time and trying to tarnish the guy’s image,pls tell the truth and stop seeking unnecessary attention, this is no rape ,everyone knows the true story when it comes to rape.
    I’m sure the truth will be out soon.
