A lady has been robbed and raped in Lagos by four armed robbers who forced her into an uncompleted building and engaged her in sex romp in turns.
Source reports that the incident happened at the building along Michael Ogun Street in Surulere, Lagos, where they accosted the victim.
It was gathered that the victim was going home at about 4.30pm when the robbers accosted her, forced her into the uncompleted building and raped her while pointing gun at her. Thereafter, they robbed her of her gold earrings and mobile phone and sent her away.
The matter was reported to the police in the area who trailed and arrested one of the suspects. The suspect, Emmanuel Okafor, was arrested and transferred to the Gender Section of the Police Command for further investigation. During investigation, the police found Okafor culpable. They later charged him before the Ogba Magistrates court for rape at gun point. The other accomplices were said to be at large and the gun they used for the assault was yet to be recovered. He was charged before the Presiding Magistrate, Mr. O.A. Ogundare, who ordered his remand in prison custody.
The court directed the prosecutor, Inspector E. Edet, to duplicate the file and send to DPP for advice.
Source gathered that Okafor risks a long prison term if the DPP finds him culpable and he is found guilty of the offence. The matter may likely be transferred to the High Court because of the seriousness of the offence he allegedly committed.
