Officers of the Lagos state police command have apprehended two men in Lekki, Razaq Oluwaseun Oke (28) and Don-Chima George (25), over the alleged drugging and rape of a 23-year-old girl On Saturday, February 2, 2018.

According to the reports, the incident reportedly took place at one Dallankester Hotels, Lekki Phase One, Lagos.

The Guardian reports that the pair is alleged to have drugged the victim whose name has been withheld, while they were out clubbing and allegedly drugged her drink with a depressant.

The Lagos State Police Command spokesman, Chike Oti, has said that, “Satisfied that the drug was beginning to affect the victim, they quietly left the club with her to Dallankester Hotels in Lekki Phase one, owned by the father of one of the suspects named Don-Chima George. At the hotel, they took turns to rape her. As if that was not enough, they recorded a video of the abused girl.

When the victim woke up from the induced sleep, she confronted the suspects who denied having carnal knowledge of her. Not satisfied, she placed a call to her elder brother complaining that she had been violated.

“The brother immediately invited policemen from Maroko Division led by the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Isah Abdulmajid to the scene. On searching the suspects, the DPO recovered their phones and went through their video recordings where he saw a video of the suspects sexually abusing the apparently unconscious victim.”
