KOFFI OLOMIDE ACCUSED OF RAPING A TEENAGE GIRL
March 18, 20190
It would be recalled that Koffi Olomide was accused of raping a young lady between 2002 and 2006 after it was alleged that he seized her passport.
Congolese music star Koffi Olomide went on trial in France on Monday on charges of sexually assaulting four former dancers who say they were held against their will at a villa outside Paris.
It was not clear if Olomide, whose real name is Antoine Agbepa Mumba, was present for the beginning of the hearing behind closed doors at the court in Nanterre just west of the capital.
The dancers say they were detained by three men at the villa in Asnieres-sur-Seine, northwest of Paris, while Olomide was touring or recording in France from 2002 to 2006, and had their passports and phones taken.
They say that they were forced to have sex with Olomide, who struck them if they tried to resist, in the villa, in the bathroom of a supermarket, and also while in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
