Police arrest man for allegedly torturing girlfriend

22 June 2015, 10:13

Abuja - A 34-year-old man has been arrested following the alleged torture of his girlfriend because of suspected infidelity.

The suspect, Solomon Ajisafe, a Lagos resident, is alleged to have tortured his girlfriend of four years, along with the help of his mother.

According to a PUNCH report, Ajisafe's mother, a known member of the Oodua People's Congress (OPC), assisted her son in inserting ground pepper into his girlfriend's private parts after flogging her for alleged adultery.

The victim, Tope Amuda, is said to have been seen talking to herself and speaking incoherently following the humiliation.

Ajisafe has denied the claims, saying that he only slapped Amuda, his girlfriend of four years.

Ajisafe described the victim as a thorn in his flesh and insisted that she was troublesome.

While speaking with police, Amuda alleged that Ajisafe and his family members had tortured her by not only inserting ground pepper into her genitals but using a bottle to do so.

Ajisafe and an accomplice, Ayomide Ajayi, have been charged on three counts of assault and have pleaded their innocence in court.

Amuda has been taken to a rehabilitation centre while the case has been adjourned to July 15.
