Man accused of abducting 21-yr-old Lagos fashion designer and repeatedly raping her overnight
A man has been accused of kidnapping a 21-year-old undergraduate and taking her to his home where he raped her repeatedly.
The victim named Zainab is a student but due to the pandemic that led to the closure of schools, she began learning to be a fashion designer.
On her way home from work on August 10, she was around Olateju, Mushin, when an SUV stopped beside her and a man, whose name was given as Babatunde Qudus, popularly known as Ovation in the area, allegedly came down from the car with a gun.
He allegedly threatened her and bundled her into the car. His driver then drove to Omole Estate where Babatunde allegedly raped Zainab all through the night.
The following day, he dropped her by the road after threatening that her life would be in danger if she tells anyone,
Zainab reportedly told her parents and the case was reported at the Olosan police station after which the victim was taken to the hospital for tests.
She has now been placed on HIV drugs and other medications and the incident has left her depressed.
It was also alleged that the police officers have been compromised due to the influence of the accused. Also, Zainab and her parents have allegedly received threats to force them to drop the case.
The incident was narrated on Twitter by @ehival and the victim responded to back up the story.
Zainab also thanked Twitter users for their support and added that her hope is that she can "recover from this trauma."
