A final year student who is reported to have lured level 100 student to an eatery, after which he tricked her to his house and raped her has been arranged before a magistrate court on one count of sexual assault.
The final year student of the University of Lagos, Oluwaseyi Anyiam, is alleged to have carried out the act on 3rd August, 2017.
The victim (name withheld) said on that day, she went to visit Oluwaseyi at an eatery. Thereafter, he told her that he wanted to pick up something from the house and go back to school afterwards.
On her arrival at his house, she saw only his friend, who was sitting in the living room, playing loud music.
The victim alleged that “Oluwaseyi urged her to go into the room with him. She said he stole a kiss from her and she told him to stop, but he refused. He then forcefully inserted his finger into her private parts and performed oral sex on her.
“She continued that Oluwaseyi asked her to do the same to him, but she refused and pleaded with him. She said he threatened to blackmail her and call his friends to gang-rape her.”
Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team of the Lagos State Government helped the family file a report with the police, after which the suspect was arrested and arraigned before court.
The charge read, “That you, Oluwaseyi Anyiam, on August 3, 2017, at about 2pm, at Alagomeji, Ebute Meta, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did sexually assault a 16-year-old girl by penetrating into her private parts, thereby committing an offense punishable under Section 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.”
