An APC Chieftain and former Security Adviser to the Bayelsa State Government, Perekeme Richard Kpodo, has been accused of rape and unlawful detention of one Miss Teke Blessing in his hotel in Etegwe, Yenagoa, Bayelsa.

Kpodo, who was alleged to have raped miss Blessing Teke on the 20th of June 2018 at his Perry Rich hotel, was arraigned at the Yenagoa magistrate court earlier today.

It was learnt that his lawyer pleaded that his client should be granted bail on health challenges, but the council to the state submitted that the defendant has not proved beyond reasonable doubt his condition and he should present certifiable evidence of his health issues.

The presiding judge remanded him in prison custody and adjourned the matter to 10th of August 2018 for further hearing.
