The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed the release of a female doctor, Bolanle Aseyan over false rape accusation.



Miss Aseyan was arraigned by the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) on Wednesday before the Yaba Magistrates’ Court on allegation she falsely accused UK-based Dr Olufunmilayo Ogunsanya of raping her.

She is accused of conspiring with others now at large “to cause injury to the person, reputation and profession of Dr Olufunmilayo Ogunsanya by your false publication on the social media tagging him as a rapist, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 413 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.”

The court ordered that she be remanded in the custody of the SCIID pending the perfection of her bail conditions.

The public was alerted to Aseyan’s appearance in court by social media activist Segun Awosanya, popularly known as Segalink.

Aseyan, however, denied that she was arrested and arraigned in court.

She also posted a video of herself in traffic on Wednesday on Twitter to prove she was not in custody.

Lagos police spokesman Muyiwa Adejobi, however, confirmed that Aseyan was released after she met her bail conditions.

“She was taken to court and granted bail, and she was released after the bail terms were met. So, it is not true that she was not arrested,” Mr Adejobi said.

Aseyan claimed Ogunsanya raped her when she visited him in the UK.

She reported him to the UK police and the General Medical Council (GMC), seeking the withdrawal of his licence.

Ogunsanya, who said they both had consensual sex after she manoeuvered her way to the UK, has been cleared by the agencies investigating the rape allegation.

Aseyan reportedly fled the UK after making the allegation against Ogunsanya.
