Serial rapist stabs woman, blinds victim’s 10-year-old daughter in Lagos


A suspected serial rapist who reportedly raped and stabbed a 60-year-old woman, Francisca, in the neck is currently on the run.

The fleeing suspect also brutalized his victim’s 10-year-old daughter identified only as Marvelous for daring to raise the alarm.

According to reports, the incident which happened weekend at the Ibeshe, Ikorodu area of Lagos State, saw the suspect sneaking into the victims’ apartment in the wee hours of the day, through the window.

The yet-to-be named suspected rapist was said to be an accomplice of another suspect identified only as Badoo, who was recently arrested by the police in the state.

Badoo, who was notorious for raping women in Ibeshe area of the state, had on June 5 barged into the flat of a Ghanaian, Grace Obina, and stabbed her to death after he raped her.

Following this, women, especially single mothers, ladies and widows are reportedly said to have been living in fear.

Some persons alleged that the masterminds of these attacks are the self-professed community leaders.

Confirming the incident to newsmen yesterday, the Lagos State Police Command spokesperson, SP Dolapo Badmos, said the police is currently on a manhunt for the suspected serial rapist.

“It was a case of assault occasioning harm.

“The rapist broke the girl (Marvelous’) lower jaw and blinded her right eye, leaving her and the mother to die.

“The victims were rushed by some neighbours to a hospital, from where Marvelous was later referred to the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi, Yaba.

“The victims are still receiving treatment. Efforts are on to apprehend the fleeing suspect,” the spokesperson added, noting that residents alerted some policemen from the Ipakodo division who visited the scene.

Speaking on the incident, a resident, Daniel, told reporters that the rape was an act of ritualism as the rapist forgot the handkerchief he used in wiping his victim’s genitals.

Daniel said, “I strongly believe that these rapists are using the handkerchiefs for rituals.

“Badoo, who was recently arrested, told the police that he had three other members perpetrating this act. Their mode of operation is the same.

“On that Saturday, the woman and her daughter were sleeping when he sneaked into their room through the window.

“He raped the 60-year-old woman and injured her. He also beat up her 10-year-old daughter to a coma. The girl’s eye is seriously affected.”
