For 25-year old woman Miss Eneh, her memorable day in life would probably the day she was gang-raped by three men who live with her in the same area three weeks to her wedding.
Her predicament after the incident took a pitiable dimension as her fiancée because of the alleged rape called off their wedding plans, saying he cannot marry her again. The victim met her saddest moment at a popular guesthouse in Ikotun, a suburb of Lagos.
Narrating her ordeal, the visibly angry lady lamented that she has lost her fiancé who has now cancelled the wedding and told her that he was no longer interested in the relationship. Explaining further, Eneh said Efe, one of the rapists left after several attempts to woo her failed and she did not suspect he was planning any bad thing against her.
She disclosed that she was going home last week when Efe, who was sitting in front of the guest house near her house called her and she went to answer him, unknown to her he had planned to rape her. She further alleged that while she was resisting him, Benson and Ismali surfaced and threatened to kill her if she resisted and raised any alarm.
She became helpless and because of the threat she obeyed them and they took turns to rape her. The matter was reported to the police and the two suspects were arrested while Efe escaped.
Meanwhile, the police in Ikotun division have arrested two of the suspects identified as Benson and Ismali while Efe Oguntuwase who allegedly masterminded it and involving two of his friends escaped.
They are now facing charges for the alleged conspiracy and rape at Ejigbo Magistrate’s court, Lagos. The police brought Benson and Ismali to be arraigned before the presiding Magistrate, Mrs M B Folami who ordered the police to take them back to the station and bring them back the next day.
