A 17-year-old girl known as Favour is currently lying paralyzed at the Igbobi hospital in Lagos where she is suffering from a spinal cord injury.
The young girl was allegedly beaten up, raped, and left inside a drainage to die by a 28-year-old man named Robinson GodDay, in the Agbara Industrial area of Lagos state on April 23.
A close relative to the victim, Mary Bassey, told Linda Ikeji Blog that Favour who lost her mother in 2007, had been raped by Robinson earlier this year.
Recounting the first incident, she said Favour lived in the same house with Robinson’s sister who works in the same place with her. She said it was while in her friend’s house that Robinson raped her.
The matter was reported at the police station in their area and he was arrested. She said he was made to sign an undertaking never to rape her again.
Also she said Robinson planned on raping Favour again after the first incident.
According to Bassey, on April 23, while Favour was returning from her place of work which is a factory situated along the Industrial part of Agbara, Robinson allegedly accosted her and violently raped her.
Bassey said: ”What happened is that on the 23rd of April, she went to work and while on her way back, she was attacked by the 28 year old boy who raped her and beat her up and then pushed her inside a gutter.
“We were looking for her all through that day but we couldn’t find her. It was the following day that some people rushed down and told us that they saw a fair lady inside the gutter.
“We ran down there and brought her home. All parts of her body was destroyed.”
However, our source gathered that Robinson is currently in Ogun State police custody.(Elewaran police division.)
While Ogun State Govt. have taken over Favour’s hospital bills.
