‘Robber Raped Me With Poly Bag As Condom’ – Teacher Tells Court

A teacher (name withheld) of a Catholic Secondary School in Lagos has
narrated before an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court how
an armed robber raped her in her home using a polythene bag (poly bag)
as protection.

The teacher made the revelation yesterday, while
giving evidence during the trial of two men in their twenties— Babatunde
Oluwaleke and Daniel Ojo— over alleged rape and robbery.

While
being led in evidence by Mr. Akin George, the lead prosecuting counsel
for the state, the teacher gave a harrowing account of how she was raped
in her home by Oluwaleke on March 6, 2018.

She told the court
that between 2a.m. and 3a.m., she was woken up by some noise and she saw
two males, a tall one (Ojo) and a short one (Oluwaleke) both dark in
complexion, ordering her to get up.

She said: “I told them I had
no money and the first defendant (Oluwaleke) said I must produce money
or he will kill me. “I was tying a wrapper and the first defendant asked
me to lie on the bed. He took my Automated Teller Machine, ATM, card,
mobile phones and all that I have.

“He brought out a knife,
placed the tip on my stomach and threatened to stab me if I did not
cooperate. When he opened my wrapper, he saw I was menstruating. I
didn’t know from where he produced a poly bag.

“He tied the
polybag on his joystick and inserted his joystick into my vagina. I was
pleading that I could be his sister, but he ignored me, asking me to
shut up. Much later, he removed the polybag and raped me using nothing.
“When the first defendant was done, the second defendant was telling him
that was not what they came for and that they needed to go.”

She
said after they left, terrified, she prayed hoping that the other
members of her household were unharmed. The teacher said when she went
to check on members of her family, she realised that they had all slept
through her ordeal. Her words: “My mother and her friend were still
sleeping in the sitting room. Things were scattered and the contents of
their handbags were emptied on the floor.

I woke them up and
told them what happened. “We went downstairs where my younger brother
stays and we noticed that the robbers used a rope to tie the door of the
mosquito net, which is attached to a spring so that it does not make
noise. “My younger brother was also still asleep with his friend. We
woke them up and I told them what happened.”

The teacher said
members of her family immediately reported the crime to the authorities
and she was taken to the hospital that morning for medical examination
and counselling. She said on that day, she was also taken to the Afonka
Police Station, Alimosho, where four recently apprehended robbery
suspects were shown to her.

Her words: “Immediately I saw the
first defendant, I recognised him. Even with my eyes closed, I can
identify him.” Obliging the request of Mr. O. Egbo, counsel to the
defendants, for an adjournment, Justice Abiola Soladoye adjourned the
case till September 30.
