Man Accused Of Kidnapping And Raping A 21-Year-Old Lagos Fashion Designer
A man has been accused of kidnapping a 21-year-old undergraduate and taking her to his home where he raped her repeatedly, IgbereTV reports.
We learnt that the victim named Zainab, who is a student and also a fashion designer was on her way home from work on August 10, when an SUV stopped beside her around Olateju, Mushin, and a man, whose name was given as Babatunde Qudus, popularly known as Ovation in the area, allegedly came down from the car with a gun.
He allegedly threatened her and bundled her into the car. His driver then drove to Omole Estate where Babatunde allegedly raped Zainab all through the night.
The following day, he dropped her by the road after threatening that her life would be in danger if she tells anyone,
Zainab reportedly told her parents and the case was reported at the Olosan police station after which the victim was taken to the hospital for tests.
She has now been placed on HIV drugs and other medications and the incident has left her depressed.
It was also alleged that the police officers have been compromised due to the influence of the accused. Also, Zainab and her parents have allegedly received threats to force them to drop the case.

I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to everybody for the love and support so far, and for giving me hope that I can recover from this trauma with the right levels of support and self care …..I AM GRATEFUL.
