7 boys have allegedly been arrested after they gang-raped two girls. According to an eyewitness, Funke Adeyanju, the incident took place in her estate in Lagos state.
Funke revealed that two girls from Gbagada GRA were set up by another female friend, who was livid because they always mocked her for losing her virginity.
The suspect claimed that she wanted to confirm if they were really virgins for mocking her virginity. Therefore, she invited them over in the pretext of having a birthday.
“This morning at about 09:15hrs the security men in my estate rushed to my gate to alert me of an ongoing crime that is being perpetrated,” Adeyanju wrote.
“We rushed to the house and discovered that 7 boys were raping 2 girls. We caught them in the act all pants down, the girls have been beaten and perhaps drugged.
“We called in the police immediately. What I saw is not forgivable. One of the girls was slightly burnt with a hot pressing iron because she refused to submit.
“Before police arrived, myself and other excos present interrogated the criminal boys and the girls in seperate rooms, what we discovered was shocking.
“These girls left their parents’ homes in Gbagada GRA this morning to come and give their female friend a surprise birthday gift at her cousin’s house not knowing their friend actually set them up.
“When they got there they were offered Chivita orange juice laced with marijuana and codeine, immediately the drug started taking its toll on the girls the boys pounced on them.
“We’ve been able to get the girl who arranged this crime….her reasons: *I wanted to know if they were truly virgins, that they always mock her since she lost her virginity* All these girls are year 1 students of Unilag and are 18 and 19 years of age.”
Adeyanju concluded by urging parents to “scrutinize the friends our sons and daughters keep” because there are “so many evil these days.”
She added that “the boys have been arrested, the girl’s parents have been notified and the girls moved to a medical facility (hospital name withheld) on Bank Anthony Way, Ikeja.”
Meanwhile, we await police confirmation of this report.
This is coming amid the nationwide outcry for the increasing number of rape cases.
