A 30-year-old woman has allegedly been raped by four men in the Alapere area of Lagos State, even as the police deny knowledge of any such thing.
The perpetrators further threatened her not to reveal details of the incident to anybody.
The victim, who was immediately transferred to the hospital, was gang-raped by four men suspected to be members of the Oodua Peoples Congress.
The incident occurred just inside her makeshift shop, at the Mile 12 market, Vanguard reports.
It has also been gathered that the victim, following series of threats, isn’t disposed to speak any further on the attack and her perpetrators.
Efforts to reach the police have been abortive as there has been outright denial from the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Alapere.
When Vanguard tried to reach her, Patricia Amadim the DPO denied having knowledge of any such attack on a woman in the market.
Further efforts by the Vanguard reporter to get tangible details on the occurrence met brick walls as one Sergeant Ibrahim Isiola, after being persistently ringed on his mobile number, dropped the call upon realization that he was speaking with a reporter.
In a similar development, an 18-year-old girl seeking admission into the University of Lagos was raped by a lecturer, one Dr. Akin Baruwa, who has now been denied by authorities of the institution.
According to the statement from the institution, Baruwa is neither an academic or a non-academic staff.
