According to the Daily Post, the prosecutor in the case, Nurudeen Thomas, Oyewole committed the offence at Aro Hotel, Lagos, on August 16, 2015.

“The accused lured the victim into the Hotel in her sedated state, tore her clothes, soaked them in water, after beating and raping her."

“He also took her nude pictures. When the victim regained her consciousness, the accused threatened to post her pictures on the internet if she told anyone what happened."

“The accused followed her to her mother’s shop where her mother and others at the shop noticed her unusual appearance and started asking questions”, he said.
