An online celebrity Nigerian medical doctor based in United Kingdom, Dr Funmilayo Ogunsanya is in danger of loosing his medical license after being accused of rape by a lady Bola Aseyan, whom he allegedly helped to move from Nigeria to the UK.
According to his account of the story, Bola traveled from Nigeria to his house in the UK, where she spent four months.
During this period the lady and the doctor had sex twice, the first one happened while they were both drunk – which is the ground for her accusation, she claimed he took advantage of her.
Dr. Funmilayo also claimed the lady tried on several occasions to seduce him, but he declined. To buttress his point, he said that unknown to him, the lady came to stay with him with the intent of getting pregnant him, with the hope of getting married to him.
He said that in four months she emotionally and sexually abused him in his own house. He described the accusations as false, insisting he will go to any length to ensure he gets Justice.
On her part, Bola Aseyan who also is a medical doctor now in the UK in a series of tweet said:
A woman can only tolerate so much abuse from a man. A completely different persona online, and a truly horrible man in person, an abuser to say the least, both sexually and emotionally. A human can only tolerate so much!
I have proof all these madness. And God in heaven knows I dread the negative type of attention but people deserve to know what a horrible human being this man is!!!! Horribly terrible!!!!
Now you are calling people to call me and speak to me ba?!!! You are calling frantically. When you were sexually and emotionally abusing, you didn’t know it would resort to this. Because Bola doesn’t air dirty laundry, Bola is private, you think I’m stupid??!
Your fav influencer has sexually and emotionally abused me for so long, and I’ve been hiding it. I didn’t want to say anything because I DESPERATELY didn’t want to be in the news for anything bad here. I kept telling myself it would be over soon. I cannot take it anymore!
Everyone is telling me to consider his profession and not say anything, i shouldn’t say anything. How about how I feel? Everytime. I’m tired. I haven’t done a thing to deserve this. I have lodged a formal complaint with the police today! I cannot and will not take this anymore!
We are both doctors. Both of us. And I’ve been too nice just because I thought it would end soon. You bully me every time. You know I hate social media issues and you have a lot of followers so it’s okay to do all these to me ba? Right!!
I didn’t press charges, only because you would lose your license to practice, and I cannot bear to carry that much guilt in my heart. Even with everything that you’ve done, I’m still not a mean spirited person. I leave you to God to judge you, and my head will judge you!!!
I am irritated to say the least at those who think my life occurrence is a gist that’s waiting to happen. You think I’m tweeting with eagerness and happiness. You think I want to be in this position or it’s a joke. I am hurting.I am sad and I’ve never thought it’ll resort to this
I use God to beg our fellow medical doctors in my DM asking me not to tweet or let it go. Please and please, they won’t abuse your children. Pls don’t give me unsolicited advise. I didn’t press charges even though the cops here in the UK asked me to, don’t push it.
Your favorite online influencer also a medical doctor in the UK who always has an opinion on every topic on Twitter, he is morally upright on the Internet, yet does the exact opposite of what he preaches online, preaching against rape and doing the exact opposite in person.
In her last tweet on the matter on 30th of June she said “Dr Funmilayo Ogunsanya, I have filed my charges and the police are with me at the moment. I have no further say in this as I’ve been advised to not say anything anymore or post any evidence on this issue online. Let the truth prevail.”
Many analysts on twitter have taken different positions on the matter, some feared that the doctor made a mistake by trying to defend himself on twitter without first consulting a lawyer, fearing that he might loose everything he worked for.
