Five men took turn to rape a 15-year-old girl Zainab because she turned one of them down, the suspects lured her into an apartment on Opeloyeru Street, where the men took turns to rape her.

Report said that police arrested all the suspects, who were being interrogated at the Bariga Police Division. In an investigation by the police in Lagos State it was gathered that the victim’s “crime” was that she turned down the advances of one of the men, identified as Femi, who wanted to date her.

Zainab was subsequently taken to the Mirabel Centre of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, for medical tests.
The victim and her father were said to have first reported the case at the Oworonshoki Police Division, which allegedly dismissed it. A family friend, however, took it up and reported it to an agency of the Lagos State Government.

She said in her statement:
“I am in Primary five, but I am also an apprentice in a hairdressing shop. I was given a piece of cloth by my boss on January 6, and I needed a tailor to sew it for me. Mr. Femi said he would assist me and I gave him the cloth.

“But when I went to him to take my clothes, he told me that he wanted to date me. When the pestering did not stop, I let go of the clothes and stopped communicating with him.
“On Monday, January 11, around 8pm, our landlord’s son called me that Abidoye, a neighbour, was looking for me. It was not the first time that I would go to the man’s house to run errands for him or his wife, so I thought he wanted to send me on an errand.
But on entering the room, I discovered it was dark and the man was not around. As I turned back to go, a group of five men, led by the tailor, grabbed me and blocked my mouth. They took turns to rape me. The whole thing lasted for about one hour.” Her father, who expressed sorrow over the incident, said he reported at Oworonshoki, but the police threw away the case.

It was learnt that Zainab, after the ordeal, started wailing uncontrollably, which caught the attention of her father, identified simply as Adeyemi. He said he later told his friend, who then called the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender.
“It is a thing of sorrow for me. How can anybody hear that five men molested my daughter? But we have nobody to help us except God,” the father of three said.
