One, Mr Obafemi Kolawole will have to spend the rest of his stay on earth behind bars after he was sentenced to life imprisonment by a High Court of Justice sitting in Ilesa, Osun State Wednesday for raping a pregnant woman, Mrs Racheal Ojimi plucking her pubic then forcing her to swallow it with dry gin.
The horrible incident occurred in the residence in of the victim in Ilesa, at about 7:30 pm in on 15 September 2007.
While painting a vivid picture of how the convict carried out his nefarious act, the victim said on the of incident, when she sighted Kolawole in her residence she took to her heels but the victim pursued her, beat her up and in the process overpowered her, tore her clothes and went further to tear her underwear.
She added that the convict subsequently had carnal knowledge of her, plucked out her pubic hair and forced the hair into her mouth and forced her to wash the hair down her throat with dry gin.
Besides, Kolawole brutally inserted a bottle opener into his victim’s genital.
Mrs. Ojimi presented a medical report to the court which was obtained from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital, LAUTECH, Osogbo, that confirmed that the victim was raped even while pregnant at the time of the incident.
The court consequently agreed that the prosecutor Mrs. Ojimi, a Chief State counsel from Osun State Ministry of Justice has proved the case beyond reasonable doubt.
Justice Justice A. B AbduKareem in his judgment noted that Kolawole did not deserve to be left alone to corrupt the society with impunity, adding that his action is not only wicked but heartless.
He therefore convicted him to life imprisonment.
