Police Nabs Man For Drugging & Rapping His 14-Year Old HousemaidA young man identified only as Nathaniel has been arrested by the Lagos State police for allegedly drugging and raping his 14-year-old housemaid in the Ikotun area of the state.
According to the Punch his housemaid, who is an orphan, was brought from a village in the south eastern part of the country to work in Nathaniel’s house. The suspect, in his 40s, is said to have lured the girl, Chinwe (pseudonym) on Monday, October 17, with a cup of juice which contained a sedative.
Chinwe stated that she fell asleep and when she woke up, she found herself naked and reportedly found semen in her private parts. She immediately fled the house but not without leaving a letter for the suspect’s wife containing details of the sexual abuse she had suffered.
Read the letter below;
“Dear aunty, I want to go. I am suffering here. Look at what your husband has been doing to me. The last time that he did it, he gave me a drink and I did not know that he purposely gave me that drink so that I could fall asleep.
“It was when I woke up that I now found myself naked. I now saw white thing on my laps. This is what he was doing to me the other time that I told you that I wanted to go. I do not want to cause trouble for you. Please, call my brother to come and take me away. I want to go and I do not want to stay here again.”
The victim also confided in a neighbour, who is a pastor in the area and he reported the incident to a child rights’ organisation, who took the case to the police.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed Nathaniel’s arrest and revealed the state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has already directed that the case be taken up in court.
