Herbalist rapes 17-year-old girl seeking traditional power to find missing N1000

Samson Ogundele, a herbalist, was arrested by Ogun State Police Command officers for allegedly raping a teenage girl during a consultation for her missing N1000.

The suspect, a resident of Referefu, Oja-Odan, in the state’s Yewa-North LGA, was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly raping the girl and trying to sexually assault another woman who went with seven others to his house for consultation.

In a statement released on Sunday, the state PPRO, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, claimed that Ogundele was detained as a result of a report filed by one of the victims at the Oja-Odan divisional headquarters.

He explained that the victim reported that a sum of N1,000 was missing among nine hairdressing apprentices and they decided to seek a traditional way to unravel the thief.

Efforts to get the missing N1000 made all the nine apprentices in the shop consult the herbalist to know who stole the money among them.

He said, “On getting to the herbalist, he started calling them into a room one after the other after collecting N700 from them.

“The complainant stated further that the first and second persons entered and came out, and when it was her turn, she entered and the herbalist tried to rape her.
