“I started living with them in March 2016. I was given a room to stay and every morning, I prepared their children for school. My aunt, who lives in Ojuelegba, Lagos State, only checked up on me once.
“The man is a businessman, while the wife works in an office. She leaves home by 5am and returns around 9pm.
“Six months after I got to the house, the man called me and said he wanted to take me as his daughter and I said it was ok.
“The next day, I dressed up the children for school and prepared to leave for school as well. I was in my room when he came and started touching my body. I threw his hands away. He told me to calm down.
“I asked if he wanted to kidnap me. He dragged me and hit my head against the wall. He didn’t care if I got injured. He pushed me to the bed. I had a headache because of the injury on my head. He removed my clothes. I had no more power to stop him. After he was done, he told me that if I told anybody, he would kill me and I would not go to school again. I called my aunt that day and explained to her. She promised to act, but didn’t do anything.”
She explained that from that point, the suspect raped her regularly while the wife and children were away.
Ibukun said she couldn’t tell the suspect’s wife because she had high blood pressure.
She claimed that she confided in a girl who later joined her in the house, adding that the girl informed the suspect’s wife’s mother who called her (Ibukun) to confirm the story.
After confirming the story, she said the woman abused her and said she wanted to destroy the family.
“He continued to sleep with me after the girl packed out of the house. Because of the problem, I lost concentration in school and when I did exams, I never performed well.
“One day, he called me and asked if I didn’t know that I was pregnant. I was shocked because I never noticed. He took me to a hospital along Ijegun Road where I supposed he had spoken with the doctor before our arrival.
“I was given an injection and immediately, I became numbed. The doctor said I would spend two days at the hospital, but he told the doctor that I couldn’t spend up to two days because he didn’t want anybody to know. The doctor told him not to worry that I would leave that day. At a point, blood started gushing out of my private parts and a nurse injected me again. I was given about three injections. This happened on November 28, 2017,” she added.
Ibukun said matters got to a head about two weeks later when the suspect sneaked into her room and raped her again while she was still hurting from the abortion.
She said she informed a schoolmate, who informed her mother.
“My friend’s mother called the police at the Ijede division. I was asked to see a policeman who listened to my story.
“Last Wednesday, the man was arrested. They asked me what happened and I told them everything. However, I observed that whenever they wanted to ask him questions, they would ask me to go outside. After everything, they asked me to return to the house.
“I told my friend’s mother and she asked me to stay at her place. When the police discovered that I didn’t return to the house, they called the woman and threatened to arrest her if they discovered I stayed at her place,” she said.
