PM Express reports that the couple who reside at Ogundipe Street in Santos Layout in Akowonjo area of the state, had lured the victim to Greenland Hotel located in Egbeda, where they drugged her, took her into a room they had earlier booked, raped and recorded the sexual violation with a video phone.

A police source close to the case said while Obinna forcefully had sex with the victim, his wife was videotaping the act with her phone though she cleverly blocked out her husband's face from being seen in the video.

It was gathered that after the dastardly act, Obinna and his wife downloaded the video and shared it on the social media and among their neighbours.

The matter was reported to the police and the suspects were later arrested and charged before Magistrate Akeem Fashola at the Ejigbo Magistrates' Court.

While the motive behind their action was not disclosed by the suspects to the police, it was learned that the victim was close to the wife before the incident happened.
