A secondary school teacher on Tuesday shared a heartbreaking details of how an armed robber allegedly raped at home using a polythene bag as protection.
The Catholic teacher (name withheld) in Lagos told the Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court that the suspect, Babatunde Oluwaleke and Daniel Ojo allegedly stormed her flat on March 6, 2018 between 2a.m. and 3a.m to commit the evil act.
Led in evidence by Mr Akin George, the lead prosecuting counsel for the state, the teacher said: “I told them I had no money and the first defendant (Oluwaleke) said I must produce money or he will kill me.
“I was tying a wrapper and the first defendant asked me to lie on the bed. He took my Automated Teller Machine, ATM, card, mobile phones and all that I have.
“He brought out a knife, placed the tip on my stomach and threatened to stab me if I did not cooperate. When he opened my wrapper, he saw I was menstruating.
“I didn’t know from where he produced a poly bag. He tied the polybag on his p3nis and inserted his p3nis into my vag!naa. I was pleading that I could be his sister, but he ignored me, asking me to shut up.
“Much later, he removed the polybag and raped me using nothing. When the first defendant was done, the second defendant was telling him that was not what they came for and that they needed to go.
“My mother and her friend were still sleeping in the sitting room. Things were scattered and the contents of their handbags were emptied on the floor. I woke them up and told them what happened.
“My younger brother was also still asleep with his friend. We woke them up and I told them what happened.”
The victim said that the case was immediately reported and she was taken to the hospital for medical examination and counselling, adding that she was also taken to the Afonka Police Station, Alimosho, where four recently apprehended robbery suspects were shown to her.
“Immediately I saw the first defendant, I recognised him. Even with my eyes closed, I can identify him.”
Justice Abiola Soladoye adjourned the case till September 30.
