How 78-Year-Old Woman Was Raped To Death In Lagos

An Investigative Police Officer (IPO), ASP Babatunde Ashifat, has narrated to the Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court how one Jelili Lawal allegedly raped a 78-year-old woman to death in Lagos State.

Naija News reports that Ashifat, at the resumption of the rape trial on Tuesday, was led in evidence by Lagos State counsel, Ms Bukola Okeowo.

The witness, who was assigned the case for investigation on January 2, 2019, said two ladies that saw the defendant raping the septuagenarian, called the attention of a policeman on night patrol.

He said the old woman was with the defendant on January 1, 2019, at the Maryland Bus Stop in Lagos State, where she told him to help her locate her residence.

However, the defendant assaulted the victim at an uncompleted building before she died of excessive bleeding from the anus and vagina.

He said, “The defendant gave her N500, and they boarded the same bus.

“On getting to a bus stop, the defendant told her to come down, took her to an uncompleted building in a bushy area, assaulted and raped her at night.

“The victim was crying for help when two ladies heard her and caught the defendant in the act.

“They helped the woman by calling the policeman on patrol.

“The victim was bleeding from her anus and vagina, and I gave a medical form for her to be taken to the Mirabel Medical Centre.

“The medical doctor, who examined her, confirmed that there was a forceful penetration into her vagina.

“I was later told that the victim died due to the bleeding.”

The IPO added that after the report was made, he recorded statements of the victim and the defendant and paid a visit to the crime scene.

Justice Rahman Oshodi adjourned the case until October 27 October for the continuation of the trial.
