Two individuals, Joy Chigozie and Musa Salihu, have been apprehended by the Lagos State Police Command for their involvement in a gang rape incident at Airport Road, Kirikiri area of the state.

According to PUNCH Metro, the incident occurred on Sunday at approximately 6 p.m. However, it was not reported until Monday at around 10:30 p.m. at the Kirikiri Police Station.

The victim, a 29-year-old woman, was enticed by one of the suspects involved in the gang rape, who is currently evading capture. The suspect convinced her to visit his alleged aunt’s shop, where she was coerced into consuming an alcoholic substance until she became intoxicated.

Additionally, it was discovered that with the assistance of his supposed aunt, the suspect took the victim to a room where he and five other men engaged in non-consensual sexual intercourse with her consecutively.

It was further disclosed that she was blindfolded by the men who also made threats to kill her if she did not comply with their demands.

Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, informed our reporter that one of the rapists, along with a 56-year-old man named Chigozie, had been apprehended and were currently undergoing interrogation.

She revealed that she had encountered a man, who is currently on the run, and he took her to a kiosk to purchase Schnapp drink.”

“The man presented a 56-year-old woman as his sister, but she claimed that the woman and his brother, while under the influence of Indian hemp, caused her to become intoxicated. The man then arranged for the woman to meet five other men at a particular location. Once there, they threatened her with harm and blindfolded her.

We further explained that these men took turns having sexual intercourse with her.
