A 49 year old man, by the name Wasiu Arogege, is currently being detained and questioned, over the alleged rape case of a 19 year girl, who is an undergraduate of Yaba College of Technology, Lagos. The victim has asked to remain anonymous.
Information was gathered, that the victim, who also runs a bar and restaurant, met Arogege a while ago, and he had promised to lend her N20,000 in order to buy a baking over, so that she could boost her business.
It was also gathered, that the suspect asked the victim over to his home, about a month ago, so that she could pick up the money he had promised.
Getting to his house, Arogege allegedly gave her only N2,000, promising to give her the promised amount,which was N20,000, in two instalments.
It was aid that trouble arose, when the victim thanked Arogege and proceeded to take her leave. It was in that moment, the suspect asked her to show appreciation for his kindness, by sleeping with him.
Reports state that Arogege locked the door, and beat the victim into submission, and continued to rape her.
He has however, denied all allegations against him, saying, “She is my girlfriend; I beat her up because she refused to have sex with me in appreciation of my kindness towards her. I did not rape her.”
