U.S. Capitol Police Arrest Suspected Stalker Outside Office of Congresswoman

January 16, 2018Jan 16, 2018

Police just arrested a suspected stalker outside the office of representative Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat from Arizona, according to NBC Washington.


The arrest occurred at Sinema's seventh-floor office in the Longworth House Office Building on Friday. The stalker has harassed Sinema since 2014, despite warnings from Capitol Police and two court-ordered injunctions demanding he not talk to her. Nevertheless, the stalker has persisted in menacing her, despite being demanded not to. He was ultimately arrested for violating these court-ordered injunctions.

According to NBC Washington, Amos Olagunju, the alleged stalker, entered a not guilty plea to the federal charge of stalking. Sinema's office hasn't yet commented on this incident and has referred those with questions to the police. 

According to reports, Olagunju attempted to contact Sinema 95 times. He desired to "express his love" for the congresswoman in the Summer of 2014. He then made several other attempts to contact the congresswoman in 2015 and 2016, both in person and over voicemail messages. At one point, he attended an April 2016 event in Arizona, which Sinema also attended. 

Since the stalker continued to menace the congresswoman, despite being told by authorities to leave her alone, it is safe to assume that she may have been in danger. 

According to reports, Olagunju's Facebook was filled with posts about representative Sinema, many of which remained public on Tuesday afternoon.

One of the posts said, "Do you know you're killing me with your love? I have to see your face. I cannot sleep without you. Show me your love spiritually and physically." 

Another Facebook post claimed, "I believe by this time next year, you will be carrying our baby in Jesus name (Amen)."
