A Junior Secondary School (JSS) 3 student has been ganged-raped in Egan, Igando area of Lagos State, Nigeria.
Reports revealed that she was lured from her parents’ house on Oremeji Street, off Isuti Road, by one of the suspects identified as Toheeb Mustapha, to The Cool Tervan Hotel, three buildings away from her house.
She was said to have been sneaked into one of the hotel rooms, where Toheeb, popularly known as Sir Small and his fleeing partner, took turns to rape her until she started bleeding profusely.
However, while taking her back to her parents’ house, some curious residents who saw the girl bleeding, concluded the strangers could have used her for money rituals, thereby raising an alarm that alerted residents.
Mustapha was apprehended by residents while his partner managed to escape. He was on the verge of being lynched when policemen from the Igando division stormed the area and rescued him.
Some of the residents who accused the suspects of engaging in the act for long, said the fleeing suspect whose identity was given simply as Sunkanmi alias G33, had booked the room since last Monday, waiting for the convenient time to carry out the sinister motive.
One of the residents, Kafaru Mukaila, said “when we apprehended the suspect, he said he was an auto mechanic and that he knew the girl from Russel Grammar school, in the year 2018, where he graduated from.
“He said he collected the victim’s phone number from her classmate and had been charting with her on Facebook, that it was not done for ritual purpose,” Mukaila narrated.
It was gathered that the JSS 3 student was taken to an undisclosed private hospital to stitch her vagina due to a tear she sustained which resulted in bleeding.
