He wanted to prove a point but it seems he could be headed for the gallows.

Tunde Bankole was said to have had a quarrel with his victim’s husband and later decided to hit back.

The incident happened at True Crescent in Oko-Oba area of Agege, Lagos where they reside.

The accused reportedly sneaked into the victim’s apartment when her husband was out holding two kitchen knives and threatened to kill her if she refused his directives.

He reportedly ordered her to her matrimonial bed, forced her to remove her clothes including her pant and open her legs.

The victim complied because of the threat and Bankole penetrated her to his satisfaction.

He also collected her wedding ring and left.

The victim later told her husband what happened when he was around and the matter was reported to the Police at Isokoko division who arrested Bankole.

At the police station, it was gathered that Bankole admitted that he had carnal knowledge of the victim but insisted that it was with her consent.

However, he was unable to explain what he was doing with the knives he reportedly used in threatening the victim.

He was charged before Ogba Magistrates court on Friday for the alleged rape. He pleaded not guilty.

The Presiding Magistrate,  T.O. Shomade granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Bankole was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail condition.

The matter was further adjourned till 17 August 2017.
