Rapists collect N250 from victim
ENUGU State High Court, while sitting, heard a case of Uzoamaka Okoli, a middle-aged woman, who was allegedly raped by Obinna Ogianya under Trans-Ekulu Bridge, Enugu, and collected her N250.
Okoli, while narrating the incident before Justice E.M Egumgbe, said she was on her way to work around 5:30am on May 28, 2019, when the defendant allegedly attacked her with a knife.
She said the defendant dragged her under the bridge on her stomach and raped her.
“I struggled with him and sustained an injury on my third finger, but he overpowered me. He pulled down the leggings I was wearing and threatened to stab me if I shout and finally forced himself on me,” she alleged.
She revealed that after the deed has been done and the defendant was putting on his clothes, that an oncoming car flashed light on him and she saw that he was wearing a blue boxer.
Okoli said that Obinna later searched her bag and made away with her only N250.
“When I climbed back on top of the bridge, I saw my colleague and after narrating the incident to her, she took the case to our supervisor. We were there when I heard that two people were arrested near the scene. When I got there, I identified the defendant as the one that raped me because he was still wearing the same yellow slippers he wore the day of the incident.
A search was conducted on him and my N250 was found on him,” she said.
Okoli also noted that the defendant was still on the blue boxer as she had spotted on him.
Okoli also revealed that tramadol, cannabis sativa, a lighter were found on him.
She said that her supervisor invited the police who took the defendant to the police station.
The matter was later adjourned to Sept. 6 and 13, for continuation of hearing by the presiding judge.
