12-year-old raped by a gang of four men in Lagos

A 12-year-old girl has allegedly been gang-raped by four masked men in the Ajah area in Lagos state.

According to Punch, the victim simply identified as Blessing, was raped at her residence on Thursday, June 4.

Recounting what happened, her heartbroken mother who gave her name as Anthonia, said “I went to the office and was called (on the phone) and told that my daughter was raped in our house.

I learnt she was having her online class when suddenly, there was a power outage. My husband rushed out to get fuel at a filling station so that she could participate in the class seamlessly.

Blessing told us that while she was in the compound, four masked men jumped into the house through the fence. They took her inside and took turns to have sex with her, leaving her with multiple injuries. Immediately I received the call, I became so mad. I headed for the hospital where my daughter was rushed to.

When I got there, I was told she suffered ‘vaginal trauma’. The underneath of her clitoris was bruised and she had a deep tear that made her bleed severely. She could have passed out if not that her dad got back home early. She lost a lot of blood. The bleeding stopped after the tear was stitched; although, she is still experiencing very severe pain.

I don’t think we are secure anymore because it seems like we are being monitored. They perpetuated their evil within the few minutes it took my husband to buy fuel. They could not enter through the gate because of an ongoing construction at a building opposite ours.

The site was crowded and that made them avoid entering through the front door. They scaled the fence. Some policemen followed us to the house and saw how the attackers scattered our things around.” she said Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, said the police are currently on the trail of the suspects.

“The police have been duly informed of the atrocity and have commenced investigation into the case. We are on the trail of the culprits. It’s a bit complicated because those guys wore face masks, which makes us suspect the culprits are people close to them.

They probably covered their faces to conceal their identities.” Bala said This incident comes a few days after an 18-year-old student, Barakat Bello, was gang-raped and stabbed to death by unknown persons in Ibadan, Oyo state.
