The rape victim, a 19-year-old penultimate year student of a secondary school in Ile ife was allegedly raped a week ago by a middle-aged man and welder, Korede Adewumi in Ile-Ife, Osun state.
The young girl was hawking ‘aadun’, a Yoruba snack, around Olubuse area of Ile-Ife when she was deceived by the false interest of the welder to buy her wares.
It happened around 3:30 p.m. when she was on her way back from hawking for the day. Korede, the rapist lured her into the house to get money for his purchase, as she stepped into the verandah of the house to collect her money, Korede seized her hands and dragged her forcefully into the house.
Her screaming and shouting alerted the only person that was around the neighborhood. Unfortunately, the only person available was the old and weak landlord of the house. So, before the landlord could get help for the girl, Korede had raped her and taken to his heels.
Her case was confirmed by Jesuloluwa nursing home in Ile Ife, and she has been transfered to the Obafemi Awolowo University teaching Hospital. Her case is being attended to at the Aagun Police station.
