November 23, (THEWILL) – The founder of Optimal Cancer Care Foundation, Dr. Femi Olaleye, has opened up about the rape allegations levelled against him.
Fitness enthusiast, Kate Henshaw, had called out Olaleye, for molesting his wife’s niece for over two years.
Lagos State Government also stepped into the case to ensure justice is served.
They called for his arraignment on Monday, at the Ikeja Special Offences Court. However, his absence stalled the case and it was adjourned till November 30.
Olaleye has now reacted by saying the allegations against him are false, malicious and looked like a set-up.
In a statement released by the medical practitioner, he revealed that he is in the news for the wrong reason.
“My name and organization are in the news and on social media for all the wrong reasons.
“I think I may have underestimated the situation and thought it was a domestic issue which my wife and those encouraging her to destroy our home have weaponized”.
He added that his person, work, corporate, individual partnerships and friendships are threatened by the baseless and false allegations.
Olaleye, also noted that the situation has been on since November 2021 and that he has been fighting to save his marriage, which has seen numerous crises over the past 11 years.
“I have now decided to fight against the false and malicious allegations and of course what now looks like set-up/blackmail,” he said.
The medical doctor added that he would let the public know the outcome of the investigation by the authorities.
