Four able-bodied men have reportedly taken turns in engaging a yet to be identified young lady in a sex romp. According to reports, the stranded lady was robbed and raped by the four armed robbers who forced her into an uncompleted building to carry out the illicit act
The incident is said to have occurred at the building along Michael Ogun Street in Surulere, Lagos, where they accosted the victim who was on her way home at about 4.30pm at gun point,raped and robbed her of her gold earrings and mobile phone after which she was sent away.
The matter was reported to the police in the area who trailed and arrested one of the suspects identified as Emmanuel Okafor.
He has since been arrested and transferred to the Gender Section of the Police Command for further investigation where the police found him culpable. They immediately charged him before the Ogba Magistrates court for rape at gun point.
As at the time of this report, the other accomplices are still at large while the gun they used for the assault was yet to be recovered.
Emmanuel Okafor 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
