Nnena Okoro, 25, who hails from Abia State, was arrested after she allegedly lured a girl, to a hotel, where a man raped her. The sad occurrence took place around Sumoratu Estate, off Ojo Road, Lagos State. According to the victim, “Aunty Nnena said I should
follow her to buy mangoes in Barracks Lane.
She did not like the mangoes they had there and she said we should go to Ojo Road. We went to a hotel and met a man, who she called her friend. Aunty Nnena told me to enter a room. Suddenly, both of them dragged me to the bed. Nnena held my hand and covered my mouth with a cloth. The man pulled off my trousers and raped me. He left the hotel immediately he finished doing it and said he had paid Aunty Nnena.
I went outside crying. It was one woman around the area that helped to clean the blood coming out from my private parts when she saw me. She later took me to the Layeni Police Station.” In her own statement, Nnena said, “We both went to buy mangoes on Ojo Road. On getting to a hotel at Tolu, one man called her. They both discussed and the man paid N500 to the hotel attendant and they entered the room.
I later left them inside the room to ease myself. It was when I came back that she told me that she was raped. I did not know that she was a virgin. Her pants were stained with blood. I have never seen the man before that day, but I can recognise him if I see him again.” Nnena was arraigned before an Apapa Magistrate’s Court on two counts bordering on the crime, and the police have launched a manhunt for the suspect. The presiding magistrate, Mr. P.A. Adekomaya, admitted Nnena to bail in the sum of N100k…… which d rapist promises to pay once he is arrested……
