A Catholic Secondary School teacher in Lagos has narrated her ordeal on how she was raped by an armed robber who used a polythene bag as condom.
According to the Teacher
He brought out a knife, placed the tip on my stomach and threatened to stab me if I did not cooperate. When he opened my wrapper, he saw I was menstruating. I didnt know from where he produced a poly bag.
He tied the polybag on his penis and inserted his penis into my vagina. I was pleading that I could be his sister, but he ignored me, asking me to shut up. Much later, he removed the polybag and raped me using nothing.
The teacher said members of her family immediately reported the crime to the authorities and she was taken to the hospital that morning for medical examination and counselling.The case is still under investigation by the Lagos State Police
Rape is now rampant in Nigeria but because of the shame and stigma often associated with it people, and many cases not properly investigated by the police many people hardly report it. In early June this year A 24 yrs old girl was drugged and raped at a night club.
The Fulani herdmens in Nigeria have been reported to be involved in wildespread gang rapes .
