Lagos Hotelier’s son and friend arrested for drugging, raping lady
Lagos state police command has arrested the son of the owner of the Dallankester Hotels, Don-Chime George, and his friend, Rasaq Oke, for allegedly drugging and raping a 23-year-old lady in the Lekki Phase 1 area of the state.
A statement from the Lagos state police command, CSP Chike Oti, states that the two suspects allegedly took a girl, 23, to a club on Saturday, February 2, 2019, unknown to her that they had an ulterior motive. While at the club, they mixed the young woman’s drink with a substance that made her weak and almost unconscious.
Satisfied that the drug was beginning to affect the victim, they quietly left the club with her to Dallankester Hotels in Lekki Phase one, owned by the father of one of the suspects named Don-Chima George.
At the hotel, they took turns to rape her. As if that wasn’t enough, they filmed the abuse.
When the victim woke up from the induced sleep, she confronted the suspects, who denied having carnal knowledge of her. Not satisfied, she put a call through to her elder brother to complain that she had been raped. The brother immediately invited policemen from the Maroko Division led by the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Isah Abdulmajid, to the scene.
Upon interrogation and searching the suspects, the DPO recovered their phones and went through their video recordings, where he saw a video of the suspects sexually abusing the apparently unconscious victim.”
The state Commissioner of Police, CP Edgal Imohimi has directed the Gender Section of the Command to investigate and diligently prosecute the suspects to serve as a deterrent to others.
