The attention of the authorities of Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to the news making the rounds on the social media, that the son of the owner of Dellankester Hotels and Suites, Lekki Phase one, Lagos, one Don Chima George,25, and his friend, Razak Oluwaseun Oke, 28, who were accused of raping their female friend after drugging her, have been allowed to go scot free because the police collected bribe from their parents.
The Command wouldn’t have wasted time debunking the spurious allegation but for the sake of the good people of Lagos State who have keyed into the Community policing agenda of the Force, being propagated by Lagos State Police Command, hereby states that the accused persons, one Don Chima George and his partner in crime, Oluwaseun Oke were arraigned in Family Court 3, Magistrate Court, Ogba, yesterday, Wednesday, February 6, 2019, for the offence of conspiracy and sexual assault by penetration to wit, rape; that after the charge was read to accused persons, the honourable court remanded them in prison custody pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecution; that the case was adjourned till March 7, 2019; that the accused persons will be produced in court on March 7, 2019 and that the accused persons are currently in Kirikiri prisons.
In summary, the duo, Don Chima George and Oluwaseun Rasak Oke, were 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.
The police decide to make a press release after some people claimed that these guys have been released from jail without the case going to trail.
