The police have instituted a criminal case against the Kogi State Commissioner for Water Resources, Abdulmumuni Danga, after he allegedly assaulted a beauty queen named Elizabeth Oyeniyi earlier this year.

 

Danga is to appear before the Federal High Court in Abuja on a seven-count charge, including rape, brutality, coercion and torture.

 

Elizabeth Oyeniyi accused Mr Danga of brutalising her and raping her multiple times on March 29 because of a Facebook post she made. In the Facebook post that resulted in the alleged assault, Elizabeth urged the commissioner on Facebook to assist his sister – who is her longtime friend – and his family financially (read here and here).

Elizabeth said the post angered Danga and he allegedly hired thugs to kidnap her from her home with her three-year-old son. He then beat her up and raped her.

Showing the marks allegedly inflicted on her by the commissioner, Elizabeth said at the time: “After making the post, they started attacking me on social media and he sent some guys to come and get me.

 

“On getting to me, they flogged me. He flogged me himself, stripped me naked and made a video of me threatening to post it when next I make any public comment about it.

 

“They also made me apologize that what I said about him was not true under duress. I had to do so because they were all over me.

 

“The commissioner also smashed my phone and destroyed it totally, saying that maybe I might have been recording what was happening or I have been recording before getting there.”

 

Elizabeth said Danga could have killed her but for her son who was with her.

Mr Danga denied the allegations but civil rights groups, led by Dorothy Njemanze, mounted pressure on the police for an investigation. Activists also called on the Kogi State government to sanction Mr Danga.

 

The state promised to launch an investigation into the matter.

 

During the investigation, activist Segun “Segalink” Awosanya  claimed there has been pressure from the state governor and others in the political class to pervert justice (read here).

Former NFL player, Dana Stubblefield sentenced to 15 years to life for raping a disabled woman

Former San Francisco 49ers player, Dana Stubblefield has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for the 2015 rape of a developmentally disabled woman.

 

The Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office said in a statement the 49-year-old was sentenced on Thursday, October 22, by a judge in San Jose after denying a defense motion for a new trial.

 

He was convicted in July following a nine-month trial after a jury found him guilty of rape by force, oral copulation by force, and false imprisonment after having lured the woman to his home with the promise of babysitting work. The jury also found that he used a gun in the assault.

A day before the April 2015 assault, Stubblefield contacted the then 31-year-old woman on a baby-sitting website and arranged an interview, prosecutors said.

 

The Morgan Hill Police Department said the woman’s interview lasted about 20 minutes. She later received a text from Stubblefield saying he wanted to pay her for her time that day, and she went back to the house.

 

After raping her, Stubblefield gave her $80 and let her go. But on her way home, the woman immediately went to the police and reported the rape, the report said.

“‘No’ meant nothing to this defendant,” said Deputy District Attorney Tim McInerny. “Based on his status, I think he was never held accountable for prior criminal behavior. Today, he was properly held accountable.”

 

Stubblefield’s attorney, Allen Sawyer disagreed with the jury’s finding, saying: “We are as adamant as ever that Mr. Stubblefield is innocent,” he told CNN.

 

He believes the victim is not intellectually disabled and says the evidence to prove it was excluded from the trial.

 

Sawyer also disclosed he will file an appeal with the hope of ‘reintroducing excluded evidence, arguing additionally that holding a trial during a pandemic created an atmosphere that unduly impacted the jurors’ decision.

Stubblefield played in the NFL as a defensive tackle starting in 1993, when he won NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year with the 49ers. He also played for Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders but retired due to an injury shortly after being signed by the New England Patriots in 2004.

 

He won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in 1997, made three All-Pro and Pro Bowl teams, and he won a Super Bowl ring with the 49ers in Super Bowl XXIX.
