Dr. Ayodele Joseph, the medical director of Ayodele Hospital in Ilorin, Kwara state, was ordered by an Ilorin Magistrate’s Court on May 10 to be held at the Correctional Facility for allegedly raping a patient.
The medical director allegedly committed a sexual assault on his patient, who was reportedly a nurse receiving treatment at the hospital, according to the police’s First Information Report (FIR).
According to the police complaint, the suspect drugged the patient before engaging in sexual activity with her against her will.
“The nurse went to the hospital for medical treatment when the doctor, who claimed to be having 27 years experience in medical field, took advantage of her under sedation,” the FIR stated.
“Investigation into the matter, however, led to the recovery of the video recording containing sexual action of the defendant on the victim while medical test also confirmed that the said nurse was assaulted and raped.”
The prosecutor, Gbenga Ayeni, told the court of the gravity of the offence and the motion exparte attached to the police report seeking the remand of Ayodele in Correctional Centre.
In her ruling, Magistrate Jumoke Kamson granted the prosecutor’s prayer and ordered that the suspect should be remanded in the Correctional Facility.
The magistrate later adjourned the matter to May 18, 2023.
