Two suspects who allegedly drugged an under graduate have been arrested by the Police in Lagos.
The Lagos State Police Command has arrested two men who allegedly drugged and gang-raped an undergraduate in a hotel in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
The suspects— Razaq Oluwaseun Oke, 28, and Don-Chima George, 25— as gathered, took the undergraduate (names withheld), to a club in Lekki area, last Saturday.
While chatting, they allegedly mixed the unsuspecting lady’s drink with a substance that made her weak and almost unconscious. Thereafter, the victim was taken to Dallankester Hotels in Lekki, owned by one of the suspect’s (George) father where she was raped in turns.
While in the act, the suspects made a video recording of it. Explaining how the suspects were arrested, spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, CSP Chike Oti, said: “When the victim woke up from the induced sleep, she confronted the suspects who denied having carnal knowledge of her. Not satisfied, she placed a call to her elder brother complaining that she had been violated.
“The brother immediately invited policemen from Maroko Division led by the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Isah Abdulmajid, to the scene.
“On searching the suspects, the DPO recovered their phones and saw a video of the suspects sexually abusing the apparently unconscious victim. “The state Commissioner of Police, CP Imohimi Edgal, has directed the Gender Section of the Command to investigate and diligently prosecute the suspects to serve as deterrent to others.
My Husband Doesn’t Care For Me, Woman Tells Court Request For Dissolution Of Marriage
A Jos Upper Area Court on Wednesday dissolved the marriage between Maryam Adam and Mustapha Adam following a petition filed by the former.
Maryam, a resident of Gangere, Jos North, had sued her husband in the court seeking the dissolution of the marriage on the grounds that her husband was not psychologically stable and had neglected her and her 10-month old baby.
The housewife said that she could no longer stay with her husband.
She argued that such separation was permissible in Islamic law, “if the partners are no longer in love and therefore unwilling to live together.”
“My husband is a tricycle driver, but he hardly cares for me and my baby and I have also noticed that he is unwell and I don’t love him again,” she explained.
At the resumption of hearing on the matter, the judge, Lawal Suleiman, granted the divorce and ordered the petitioner to refund the N60,000 paid as dowry by her husband, as applicable in Shari’a.
