Amid the various rape and murder cases which have led to many clamouring for justice for the victims, another 12-year-ol girl has been allegedly raped in her parent’s house in Lagos.
The girl was said to have been raped by four by four masked on Thursday.
A family member told PremiumTimes that the girl has gone for medication and necessary treatment and that the case has been reported to the Police.
The Lagos state police spokesperson, Bala Elkana, also confirmed the attack.
He said: “It was a sad incident. She was in the house with her father. When it was time for her to start her online class as COVID-19 mandated, the father discovered that there was no fuel in the generator. So, he said let him quickly go get fuel”
“Immediately he left, the rapists jumped into the fence to carry out the attack, they covered their face during this period so, she could not identity them.
“As a matter of fact, the state commissioner of police has asked the gender unit of the force to investigate the matter. Like we’ve achieved before now, we will apprehend them and make sure they face the rot of law,” the police boss said.
Nigeria has witnessed a surge in rape cases in recent weeks.
A 300-level UNIBEN student, Vera Omozuwa, died after being raped and beaten. Also, an 18-year old, Barakat,was gang-raped and killed in Ibadan, Oyo state. Barely 24 hours after that, a post-graduate student of the University of Ibadan, identified as Azeezat, was found dead in her residence after she was allegedly raped.
