“One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness, bind them” this is a quote from JRR Tolkien’s lord of the rings. I thought of it when I got wind of the story of TWO BOYS who were arrested for using a MAGICAL RING to GANG-RAPE a 19 year old secondary school student.
The two young men were remanded in Agodi prison by an Ibadan magistrate court after allegedly using a magical ring to abduct and rape a 19 year old girl. They were also charged with stealing a blackberry phone belonging to the victim.
According to the victim;
“There is a boy who was not my boy friend. He was a student in that school about two years ago. His name is Biola. He had wanted to date me several times which I politely turned down. Just last Wednesday, when I closed from school, Biola came to me in company of two unidentified boys and said his mum wanted to see me.
“‘I asked him what led to the invitation by his mum. I then told him I would not go. Then, one of the two other guys who had a ring on his hand hit me on the chest and I was unconscious. They took me to the residence of one of the two boys and raped me.
“Before raping me, they gave me alcoholic drink and after the crime had been committed, they gave me ‘covenant water’ threatening me that I would die if I told anybody of the act.”
A ranking police officer who wishes to remain anonymous confirmed the story saying:
“On May 15 at 0815 hours, one Adekola living on Akanbi Street, Molade area of Ibadan reported that his younger sister and a secondary school student went to school and did not return home. All efforts to trace her proved abortive.
“Then about 23:00hours, an unanimous caller called through the victim’s GSM number and identified himself as kidnapper and demanded N6,000. The DCO led other policemen and the victim was rescued.”
She was unconscious and was rushed to a nearby hospital. She later narrated how she was kidnapped and gang-raped by three persons. Two arrests have been made while the third suspect is still at large. The two suspects have been charged to court.”
