Lagos State Police Command has debunked claims making the rounds specifically coming from social media that the son of the owner of Dellankester Hotel and suites, one Don Chima George and his partner in crime oluwaseun Oke that was accused of raping their female friend under drug influence have been allowed to go scot-free alleging that the police took bribe from their parent.
The Lagos state police public relation officer, Csp chike Oti told urban express news that the command wouldn’t have wasted time debunking the spurious allegation but for the sake of good people of Lagos state, who have keyed into community policing agenda of the force, being propagated by command, hereby states that the accused in person of Don Chima and his partner in crime oluwaseun Oke has been arraigned in family court Ogba on Wednesday Yesterday February 6th, 2019.
He said they were charged with conspiracy and sexual assaults by penetration with rape, adding that after the charge was read to the accused persons and that which they pleaded not guilty, the honourable court eventually remanded them in prison custody pending legal advice from the Directorate of public prosecution
“The case was however adjourned till 7th of March for further hearing, and that the accused persons are currently in prison custody”
Oti said contrary to insinuations, the two suspects are lawfully arraigned in a court of competent jurisdiction and at no point were they granted bail by the police nor the court.
“The command, therefore, wishes to advise members of the public to be wary of fake and unsubstantiated news emanating from rumour mills and enjoins the press to always cross check with relevant agencies before publishing”
