Three Rapist Impregnated 14 Year Old Girl See What They Have To Say

Physinews: The Lagos State Police Command has arrested
three men for allegedly raping and
impregnating a 14-year-old girl in the Agric,
Ikorodu area of Lagos State Nigeria.


Our correspondent learnt that the suspects –
Kingsley Oke, Henry Osadere and Francis Ekwe
– were arrested in the Majidun, Ikorodu area of
Lagos State, before they were transferred to the
Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja Lagos Nigeria.

It was gathered that the suspects, who lived in
the same area with the parents of the teenager,
identified only as Ijeoma, allegedly raped the
girl in August 2016, after the mother went for a
vigil.

Our correspondent gathered that Ijeoma, a
primary 6 pupil, was later discovered by the
mother to be pregnant, and she reported to the
police at the Owutu division.

The police said the three men were arrested on
September 9, 2016.

Speaking with PUNCH Metro, Ijeoma said one
of the suspects threatened to kill her if she
disclosed the rape to anyone.

She said, “It was Uncle Kingsley (Oke) who first
raped me. On that evening, he called me and
said he would send me on an errand. When I
went to his room, he immediately locked the
door.

“I started begging him, but he forcefully carried
me to his bed and raped me. On the second
occasion, it was one man called Baba Ijebu that
molested me. I had been sent to his house to
collect an item.

“While in his house, he raped me. I cried, but he
said I would die if I told anyone. The third man
was Henry (Osadere). I don’t want to talk about
it again.”

Forty-three-year-old Osadere, however, denied
raping Ijeoma, saying she was a wayward girl.

He said, “She came to my place and said she
had many boyfriends. I asked how a teenager
like her had several boyfriends. Anytime she
came to my apartment, she would steal some
items. That was why I sent her away.

“I was surprised that she said I was one of
those who raped her. She said she had a three-
month-old pregnancy. I don’t know the other
suspects.The girl lied against me.

She knows
the people who messed around with her. It was
because I stopped her from coming to my
house that she lied against me.”

Oke, 30, a welder, said, “I have known the girl
since 2014. She usually came to my house to
play. She is a wayward girl. Everyone knows
about her promiscuity. I never raped her.”
Ekwe, 52, said Ijeoma and her mother had
begged him in August to borrow them some
money, which he did, adding that he did not
rape the girl.

The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai
Owoseni, said the suspects would be charged
to court at the end of investigations.
