Sad Story of How Herdsman R*ped A Married Woman

A Fulani herdsman is currently being remanded in prison custody after being accused of s*xually molesting a married woman whom he attacked from behind.

An Iyaganku Senior Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ibadan ordered the herdsman, Abubakar Likita, to be remanded at Agodi Prisons for allegedly r*ping the married woman.

Senior Magistrate Mrs Patricia Adetuyibi, who gave the order, ruled that Abubakar Likita, 19, should be remanded, pending an advice from the Oyo State director of public prosecutions.

The accused, who rears cattle around Idiya Village in Ile-Ido, Ibadan is being tried on a charge of having unlawful carnal knowledge of a married woman.

The plea of the accused was not taken. Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Olalekan Adegbite, told court that the accused committed the offence on Aug. 14 at about 5pm at Idiya Village.

Sgt. Adegbite said: “On the fateful day, the woman was in her farm when Likita attacked her from behind. The attack resulted in the woman sustaining injury at the back of her forehead and neck where the accused held her.”

Mrs. Adetuyibi adjourned the case till October 5 for mention.
