The police in Lagos on Tuesday dragged two persons, Victor Monday and Anayo Muhammad,  to court for allegedly raping a teenage girl. 

The police said Monday and Muhammed lured the girl to an abandoned house in the Ojo area of the state on the pretence they would help her secure employment but instead allegedly took turns in raping her. 

The police said that the two men called out the victim, who resides with her sister at Lawal Close, Igando, in the Alimosho Local Government Area, from her home, saying they had already secured a job for her and that she was expected to resume duty immediately. But she discovered at the abandoned house where she had been lured to that there was no job and that the men merely wanted to have carnal knowledge of her, which they were alleged to have successfully done before releasing her.

When she returned home, she told her sister what happened and the matter was reported to the police at Igando Division.  

The suspects were trailed, arrested and detained at the police station. According to the police, the men confessed that they had sex with her but that she was not raped.

They were charged before the Ikeja magistrate’s court for the alleged offence. They pleaded not guilty.

The case was adjourned till February 2, 2018 for trial, while the suspects were remanded in prison custody pending when they will perfect their bail condition.
