Three Men Arrested for Raping & Impregnating 14yrs Old Girl

The Lagos Police Command has arrested three men for allegedly r*ping and impregnating a 14-year-old girl in the Agric, Ikorodu area of the state.

The suspects – Kingsley Oke, Henry Osadere and Francis Ekwe – were arrested in Majidun, Ikorodu area before they were transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja.

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

The shameful incident happened in August 2016. The Punch gathered that Ijeoma, a primary 6 pupil, was later discovered by the mum to be pregnant, and she reported to the police at Owutu division, leading to the arrest of the three men.

Speaking with The Punch, Ijeoma said one of the suspects threatened to kill her if she disclosed the r*pe to anyone.

She said, “It was Uncle Kingsley (Oke) who first r*ped 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 r*ped 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 r*ped 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.”

REACTIONS
43-year-old Osadere denied r*ping 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'm surprised she said I'm one of those who rap*d her. She said she had a 3-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 r*ped 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 r*pe the girl.

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