The Prosecutor, Insp Ona Glory, had told the court that the convict committed the offence on Dec. 23 at about 2:30 pm at Onibambu Village near Modakeke.
Glory said that the convict willfully and unlawfully had carnal knowledge of one Victoria Sogunlana without her consent.
He added that the convict assaulted Sogunlana by attempting to strangle her on a farm.
The convict was arraigned on a charge of rape and assault.
According to the prosecutor, the offences contravene Sections 351 and 358 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2003.
