The police operatives who took  charge of the investigation arrested Olaleye and the case was transferred to the Gender Unit of the police command in March 2022.

When Olaleye wasn’t properly indicted for the crime, a petition was written to the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Agency to intervene in the matter.

The agency then forwarded the case file to the Directorate of Public Prosecution and recommended Olaleye for trial.

In a letter of notification titled: “State of Lagos vs Dr Olufemi Olaleye”, signed by the Principal State Council of DPP, Mr Oluwagbenga Alagbe, Olaleye will be arraigned in court today.

“Olaleye will be facing a two-count charge of defilement and sexual assault by penetration. He must appear before the honourable court and also make provision for a legal practitioner of his choice,” the letter reads in part.
