Pa Simeon Adeniji (pictured), a 75-year-old remanded for raping 13-year-old housemaid has denied the sexual assault charge.

Accused by his 71-year-old wife, Chief (Mrs.) Adeniji, a citizen of both Nigeria and UK of being a serial rapist, the septuagenarian is presently held by the police at the State Criminal Investigation Department of the Oyo State Police command.

The latest incident was that Pa Simeon Adeniyi allegedly raped the Togolese housemaid living with the couple in the bathroom at their residence at Orita Challenge in Ibadan.

A Federal High Court sitting at Ring Road, Ibadan heard the rape case on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 and the judge ordered the remand of the accused while adjourning the case till December 2.

Pa Adediji who hails from Ile-Ogbo in Ayedire Local Government area of Osun State was said to be a serial rapist.

Justifying the latest rape allegation, his wife said he severally raped her niece.

She said: “My niece was a heavy sleeper and she told me of how my husband constantly raped while she was sleeping. She told me that my husband warned her against telling me so that I would not stop sponsoring her education.

“My niece only opened up when another girl reported my husband’s misdeeds towards her to me in her presence. I came to Nigeria because of this and in the presence of the girl’s father and a pastor, my husband confessed. I don’t know why he is denying now.”
