A 38-year-old man, named Tunde Bankole, has been remanded in a Lagos Prison following his arrest and court hearing for reportedly raping his neighbour’s wife.
Accorisng to reports, the incident happened at True Crescent in Oko-Oba area of Agege, Lagos, after the suspect had a misunderstanding with the victim’s husband and later decided to punish him by allegedly raping his 36-year-old wife.
Tunde went to his neighbour’s house when he wasn’t around, holding two kitchen knives threatening to kill his neighbour’s wife with it if she refused to remove her clothes, lie on her matrimonial bed, spread her legs and allow him rape her.
After he had had sex with her to his satisfaction, he reportedly took her wedding ring and left.
He was however arrested after the victim told her husband what happened when he wasn’t around.
Tunde did not deny having sex with the victim at the Police Station, but he argued that it all happened with her consent, failing to explain what he was doing with the knives he used in threatening her.
The Presiding Magistrate at Ogba Magistrates court, Mr T.O. Shomade granted Tunde bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in the like sums, stating that he will remain in prison pending the time he will perfect his bail condition, as the case was further adjourned till 17 August 2017.
