Kingsley Oke, Henry Osadere and Francis Ekwe, were arrested in the Majidun, Ikorodu area of Lagos State, for allegedly raping and impregnating a 14-year-old girl in the Agric, Ikorodu area.
The suspects allegedly raped the girl, Ijeoma, a primary 6 pupil, in August 2016, after he mother went for a vigil. Her mom later discovered that she was pregnant, and she reported to the police at the Owutu division.
Speaking with Punch, Ijeoma 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.” The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, said the suspects would be charged to court at the end of investigations.
