How I was raped by cultist – FUOYE undergraduate

A student of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti, FUOYE, has narrated to a Lagos State Special Offences Court how she was raped by a cultist identified as Tayo Bakare.

The suspect is standing trial on eight count charge bordering on robbery, robbery, deprivation of liberty and rape.

The victim stated that Bakare had lured into a hotel room on August 12, 2017, forced her to take off her clothes, took pictures of her nude and forcefully had sexual intercourse with her.

She said, “I don’t know the defendant before the incident and prior to that day, I had planned hanging out with a family friend, one Miss Faith. But I had no idea that her phone had been stolen and that the person, who stole the phone, was the one chatting with me on WhatsApp.

“So, we fixed a date and place to meet. I came to Oshodi to meet her but it was the defendant I met holding Faith’s phone. And he said Faith asked him to come and pick me and I followed him and he took me to a hotel in Ikotun.

“He said my friend was inside the room and we went inside. When we got in, I sat on the bed and he then told me that everything was a setup; that my friend set me up for  him.

“He thereafter locked the door and told me that he was a cultist and a member of the Badoo group in Lagos. He then ordered me to bring out all the items in my bag and placed them on the bed. I hurriedly obeyed. He asked me to give him money and I begged him not to harm me but to allow me call someone to transfer money to me to give him. I had my two ATM cards and N2,000 cash with me.

“He began threatening to kill me if I didn’t give him money. He, thereafter, ordered me to take off my clothes and face the wall. He also ordered me to unlock my phone, which I did, and he took nude pictures of me. And right after, he sexually abused me.

“When he finished, he told me to go to the toilet and wash myself so that I wouldn’t get pregnant. But while I was in the toilet, he locked me inside and ran away with my items. He took away my two phones – an Infinix and a Samsung – and N2,000, but left my bag and clothes on the bed.

“I had to call for help and someone, who was passing by the room, unlocked the door. I had to explain what happened to a woman I met in the hotel and she assisted me with N500 to transport me to my house.”

She added that the case was reported at the Ikotun Police Station after she told her parents about it. This led to the arrest of her friend, Faith, for setting her up.

She later discovered that Faith was not an accomplice but also a victim of Bakare.

She said, “I don’t know the defendant before the incident and prior to that day, I had planned hanging out with a family friend, one Miss Faith. But I had no idea that her phone had been stolen and that the person, who stole the phone, was the one chatting with me on WhatsApp.
