The traditional ruler who is currently standing trial for the alleged rape of a 23 years old ex-corps members, Oba Adebukola Alli, the Alowa of Ilowa in Obokun, Osun State, on Tuesday shocked those present at the court room when he asked the Court to compel the complainant, Miss Helen ( other names withheld) to show her private part to the court to confirm her allegation that she sustained injuries after making love with her.
At the resumed hearing of the case before Justice Jide Falola, Oba Adebukola, who spoke through his counsel, Mr. Tewogbade, insisted that the victim should either show her private part at the court room or rather go into the judge’s chamber to show it to the judge and the prosecution.
The lady subsequently burst into tears in the witness box, due to the painful request by the monarch asking her to show her private part. This prompted the prosecution counsel, Mr. Biodun Badiora, to object the question, saying it was meant to insult the plaintiff.
It took the efforts of the principal state counsel, Mr. Biodun Badiora to calm her down.
