Customs officer allegedly rapes, videotapes lady he met online
A Customs officer, identified simply as Samuel, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly raping and videotaping the nudity of his female friend.
It was gathered that 29-year-old Samuel always threatened to post the clip on the social media whenever he demanded to have sex with her and she refused.
PUNCH Metro reports that the duo had met on an online dating platform, Badoo, and after establishing a mutual friendship, the Customs man invited her to his house in the Ogba area of Lagos.
Sometime in March 2017, the 26-year-old woman was said to have visited Samuel and after entertaining her, he reportedly made love advances to her, which she allegedly rejected.
Samuel was said to have left her in the apartment, locked the door from outside and went out.
A police source disclosed that Samuel returned home seven hours later when the woman had almost become unconscious, raped her and took a video of her nakedness.
It was learnt that the case was reported to policemen who arrested the suspect on Sunday.
Punch reports that the suspect had been transferred to the Sexual and Domestic Violence Unit of the command headquarters in Ikeja for further investigation.
In a briefing on Wednesday at the headquarters, the state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, confirmed the incident.
The CP, however, did not disclose the full name and other details of the suspect, saying that the public would be properly briefed after the conclusion of investigations.
