24-year old lady arrested for falsely accusing Twitter influencer of rape

Bola Aseyan, a 24-year old Nigerian Lady has been called before a court on the basis of accusing a UK based doctor of rape. 

She was arraigned before a Yaba magistrate court on a five-count charge of; false accusation, criminal defamation of character and offensive publication likely to cause a breech of  peace. 

Several people also condemned the nefarious act of Dr Olufunmilayo based on her accusationss. She went ahead to report the issue to the UK police and the professional body for medical doctors in the UK, the GMC. 

Investigations carried out by the police and the GMC revealed that the matter had nothing to do with professional misconduct whilst probing the rape accusation 

As a result of this, Dr Olufunmilayo filed a suit against her in the UK but she fled for Nigeria without attending to the matter and court papers sent to her via email. 

Consequently, reports were filled in Lagos with the police at the bar beach police station where she delayed honoring the police invitation. 

She eventually visited the station with her lawyer and evidence was presented to her which she stalled based on false allegation against the police of destroying her phone amongst others. 

The accused then asked for transfer upon which she was finally arraigned on Wednesday. 

The allegations stated in the fivecount charge was that she with some others between June 29 and July 1 at No 12A, Molade Okoya Thomas, Adeniyi Jones in the Lagos magisterial district, conspired to cause injury to the person, reputation and profession of Dr Olufunmilayo ogunsanya by a false publication on social media tagging him as a rapist, thereby committing an offence punishable under section 413 of the criminal law of Lagos state 2015.
