A rape victim who was battered by a rapist at Oluyole, Ibadan, Oyo State, has narrated her sad ordeal and further indicted the police.
The rape victim, Oghene Karo, whose sad experience with the rapist identified as Wale started off after they met at a mall, admitted following him home after he stated that he wasn’t after sex but just wanted them to chill together.
Wale who started making sex advances after they got home was rebuffed, and further slapped Oghene Karo when she shouted at him. According to her, the rapist who claimed that he spent money on her, further stated that he won’t let her go even if she has been let off by other guys in the past.
Oghene Karo who eventually escaped but with bruises after a long struggle, reported the matter to the police, but got shocked after officers on duty only told Wale to give her N20k to treat herself and thereafter freed him. She further stated that she regrets reporting the incident to the police.
This is coming after it was reported that the incidence of rape has taken a serious dimension in Ibadan, Oyo State, with over 20 new cases reported monthly. A survey by NAN correspondent in Ibadan showed that the menace was fast assuming a dangerous dimension, with reported abuse of minors.
