Mrs Abimbola Omotoso, wife of a former House of Assembly member and Peoples Democratic Party chieftain, Dr Samuel Omotoso, on Monday accused Ekiti State Government of plotting to frame her husband up with rape charge.
The woman alleged that the state government was using a house help that had lived with the household for over five years to achieve the sinister motive.
While exonerating her husband of rape, she added that the house help’s family, especially the mother, had in her testimony, absolved he husband of any rape case.
The former lawmaker’s wife said, “The girl in question is an ill-mannered lady and all what she wants is total freedom for her reckless lifestyles as testified to by her mother and brother.
“The allegation is untrue, politically motivated just like many others made against my husband in the past and I wonder when he will be allowed his freedom to private life.
“My husband is a medical doctor and Peoples Democratic Party politician who contested, won and served as the House member from Oye Constituency 1, the same constituency with His Excellency Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State in the fifth assembly.”
She added, “The constant harassments and intimidations of my husband have caused me and my children immense mental torture, pains and financial losses and it is a form of severe gender based violence against my person.”
But Ekiti State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Olawale Fapohunda, said it was wrong for Mrs Omotoso to accused the government of complicity in an alleged rape which was reported by the girl against the lawmaker.
The AG said, “Immediately the matter was reported through the girl’s school, we took a statement from the alleged rape victim and forwarded the matter to the police for investigation.”
