See the Faces of Men Who Allegedly Raped Their Friend's 5-year-old Daughter (Photos)

 

The men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps have apprehended 5 men over an alleged case of rape of two minors while their father was away at work. 


A five-year-old girl has accused five of her father’s colleagues of rape. The victim, it was learnt, was allegedly raped alongside her three-year-old sister.

Punch learnt that the victims and their father, Ayodele Ekundayo, who is a driver at a cement factory, lived in the same compound with the suspects who all work in the same company.

It was learnt that the company, which is located in the Fagba area of Lagos State, provided accommodation for its employees.

The suspects named John Mahansi, Taiye Ojo, aka Ejima, Deji Adenekan, aka Orobo and Peter Irobo, aka Apako, are between the ages of 24 and 33.

Speaking with a reporter at the Lagos headquarters of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, the father of the victims said he was disappointed when he found out that his colleagues raped his daughters.

He said since he had no wife, he usually left the little girls in the care of his colleagues. Ekundayo said he discovered the alleged rape when his daughters started complaining about pains in their private parts.

He said:

“Five days ago (on Thursday), my younger daughter ran to me and was shouting ‘pepper, pepper’ pointing to her private parts. She took off her pants and cried when I did not answer her. When I asked her who put pepper in it, she said it was Apako.

"I called her elder sister and she confessed to me and narrated all that happened. She said they (the suspects) threatened to kill them if they told me what was going on.

"Others did not talk when I approached them but Apako was shouting and threatening me when I challenged him. I am surprised they could do such a thing to my daughters. Those children are precious to me.

"At times, I take them with me to where we offload bags of cement when there is nobody to look after them. My older daughter told me that two drivers, Ejima and Orobo, used to touch her private parts while I was busy at work. I left my daughters with the security guards, Mahansi and Segun, whenever I was on night duty. I didn’t know that they were also defiling my daughters.”


The suspects, who were paraded by the NSCDC, however, denied the allegations.
