Femi Olatunji, 17; Oyekanmi Rasheed, 18; Oladele Habib, 18 and John Alade, 16, were arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl, who said they threatened to kill her if she ever exposes them after they
raped her when she went to Femi, a tailor, to have her dress mended.
While narrating her ordeal, she said: “Femi had once told me he would want to marry me and I told him I wasn’t interested. That particular day, I had gone to his shop to give him a dress to fix for me. He said Brother Abidoye (I used to run errands for him) was calling me.
I got to Brother Abidoye’s room and I didn’t see him. At that point, Femi and his friends entered the room, switched off the light and they raped me. I tried shouting and calling for help but because they had tied my mouth, I couldn’t shout very well.
When they finished, my private part was paining me. I had to tell my mother what happened. That was when she alerted the police and the boys were arrested.” However, the boys are claiming they didn’t rape her, saying it was a consensual act.
