Two suspects identified as Festus Femi, an installation Engineer 41-year-old and 51-year-old Luka Gabriel Ekundayo, Bursar of Government Secondary School Dangara, Abaji, Abuja, have been arrested by operatives of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) for allegedly raping and impregnating four female students.
Femi, charged of raping three school students of Government Secondary School, was arrested by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and referred to NAPTIP for further investigations and prosecution, while Ekundayo was arrested by the agency’s officials for allegedly drugging, raping and impregnating a 15-year-old student.
Two dupes of the rape incident said they were all taken to Festus’ house by their classmate who claimed he was her uncle. He reportedly threatened to kill them if they expose the incident to anyone. Confirming the accounts of the two dupes, the third dupe, a 15-year-old girl admitted to introducing the other two dupes to the suspect. According to her, Festus was her former neighbour who usually gave her N500 each time they sleep with each other. She also unvailed that she has brought 5 underage girls to him, and he settled her N300 for each.
