The pair were reportedly attending a party where they had too much to drink when they committed the crime.

According to Punch, Quadri, in company of his friend, Orji, had gone to ease himself at a nearby bush. It was at this point that they spotted their victim, who was alone in her room.

25-year-old Orji was reported to have stabbed the woman by the shoulder and took valuable items such as her phones, Ipad, perfumes and other personal effects.

The pair also took turns to rape the woman for thirty minutes before leaving her.

It was the residents of the area that took the woman to the hospital and also reported the case to the police station.

The culprits were caught after selling the victim's phones, Punch reports.

According to a source, “After they committed the crime, they fled and thought that was the end of the case. They sold one of the woman’s phone to someone.

"We were able to track the phone and get that person arrested. The buyer led us to them. They did not deny the crime.”

One of the suspects, Quadri, who hails from Abia State explained that they were drunk when they committed the act.

“It was around 10pm on Sunday night at Ajah that the incident happened.  We went for a festival and became drunk. We later felt we should go to a hotel to have another drink.

“On the way, I went to a nearby bush to defecate. After I was done, we saw that the house opposite the bush had no gate or any form of security. We decided to enter the building. We observed that there was a lady in her room alone.

“We saw that her kitchen did not have any burglar-proof bar, so we entered through the kitchen. I was outside watching to know if anybody would come, while Orji was inside.”

According to  Fatai Owoseni, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, the victim is at the hospital and is responding to treatment.
