U.S. – Nigerian, Olukunle Oyekanmi, who is a correctional officer, has been charged with forcing an inmate to perform a sex act in her jail cell.
Based on the report from the Washington Post, the police authorities in Montgomery County wrote in court documents that the rape victim said Oyekanmi walked into her cell at 6:20 a.m. on Tuesday.
She was wearing pants and no shirt but was under the sheets in bed. The 41-year-old, Oyekanmi, allegedly removed the sheet, fondled her and said he “wanted her now.”
The inmate reportedly “ignored Oyekanmi’s statement,” and he left the cell. He returned to her cell a short time later and ordered her to stand up. When she did, he grabbed her, she tried to pull away, but he directed her to sit on a toilet seat, where he sexually assaulted her.
“Oyekanmi then ordered [the inmate] to gather up her clothes and bring them down to the laundry,” detectives wrote.
The court filings revealed that Oyekanmi, who admitted to the sexual assault, posted a $20,000 bond and was released from custody.
