The Centre Against Injustice and Domestic Violence (CAIDOV) has urged the police to act on an alleged legal advice by the Lagos Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) concerning a defilement allegation against one Dr Femi Olaleye, of Optimal Cancer Foundation, Surulere, Lagos.
Its Executive Director, Comrade Gbenga Soloki, said failure to do so would be “an affront on the judiciary.”
The CAIDOV boss claimed that the DPP’s report had not only been served on the Police, via the Office of the Officer in Charge of Legal Services (OC Legal), but that it also indicted the doctor.
He urged the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Mr. Abiodun Alabi, to direct the OC Legal to give action to the advice of the DPP, by arresting and prosecuting the said doctor, to serve as deterrent to others.
The doctor declined to react, saying he had no comment and hung up the phone.
In September, the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA) said it received a complaint of sexual assault by penetration and indecent treatment of a child.
It said it referred the matter to the designated Police Station, adding that the child had received medical support and was in the process of getting psychosocial support.
