Two graduates, Desmond Quadri, 24 and Richard Orji, 25, have been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly raping a woman in the Ajah area.
The suspects had attended a party together where they had some bottles of alcoholic drink.
After the party, Quadri was said to have gone into the bush to defecate and was accompanied by his friend, Orji.
Quadri said, “On the way, I went to a nearby bush to defecate. After I was done, we saw that the house opposite the bush had no gate or any form of security. We decided to enter the building. We observed that there was a lady in her room alone.
“We saw that her kitchen did not have any burglar-proof bar, so we entered through the kitchen. I was outside watching to know if anybody would come, while Orji was inside.”
He said his mate, Orji, stabbed the victim with a knife and she screamed, adding that he immediately went inside to join him.
Orji said they took her phones, tablets, and other effects and took turns to rape her.
“We were drunk. I cannot say if it was the drink or something else. But I can tell you that we allowed the devil to take complete control of us,” he said.
The suspected rapists were said to have been caught after selling the victim’s phones.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Fatai Owoseni, said the victim was in the hospital, adding that she was responding to treatment.
“The woman was taken to the hospital after the incident and she is responding to treatments. The suspects will be taken to court latest tomorrow,” he said.
