A 45-year-old tailor who seized the clothes and underwear of a 16-year-old girl Senior Secondary School 1 student after raping her, has been arrested by policemen attached to the Isokoko Police Division, Agege, Lagos.

The suspect, identified as Fasasi, had allegedly abducted the girl who was on an errand for her mother and forcefully had sex with her, after which he took possession of her items of clothings.

It was reported that while the girl was on the errand for her mother, the tailor had called her and asked her to buy him food on her way and when she requested for his plate, he allegedly lured her to his room where he forced her to remove her clothes and underwear, threatening to kill her with a knife if she made any noise.

Thereafter, he raped her and when he was through, he seized her clothes and hid them. The hapless girl was said to have left his place with one of his wrappers tied to her waist and one of his neighbours noticed her and came to her rescue.

The matter was said to have been reported at the Isokoko Police Division, and Fasasi was later arrested.

The victim narrated her experience in the hands of the rapist thus:

“It was on April 19, 2015, at about 5 pm. My mother and I live on Shaiba Street in the Agege area. I had never gone to the tailor’s house before. I did not know he was a rapist.

On the fateful day, he asked me to follow him inside his room to get the plates that I would use to buy food for him. Once I entered the room, he immediately locked the door behind him. He then brought out a knife and threatened to kill me if I did not undress.

I begged him, but he did not listen. I was scared that he would kill me, so I obeyed. But after removing my clothes and underwear, he collected them from me, and went out with them. I asked him where he was taking them to; he said he was taking them to his shop.

Seconds later, he returned and he raped me. I was shouting inside the room, but no one seemed to hear me.

When he was done, I asked for my clothes, but he said he would not release them unless he had one more round. As soon as I saw an opportunity, I took one of his wrappers, and forced my way out of his room.

When I got outside, I met a woman who was one of Fasasi’s neighbours. When she saw me, she understood what had happened and confronted him.”

The victim's mother also spoke on the incident, expressing fears that the rapist could use her daughter's clothes for diabolical purposes.

“I am afraid of what he might do with my daughter’s underwear. What does he want to do with her clothes? I have been worried since the day this incident happened.”
