A 65-year-old man, identified as Durodola Kayode Ogundele, of Ayetoro-Ekiti, has reportedly been arrested by the police at Ekiti for forcing himself on his 85-year-old stepmother.

The case was confirmed by the Spokesperson of the state police command, ASP Abutu Sunday who revealed that the abuse occurred in the room of the victim on June 15.

According to a statement released by the police command, the suspect went into the room of the victim to apply herbal medicine on her leg like he always does but things took a different turn.
