Woman Munches Rapist’s Manhood As He Asks For A Head |RN

A woman escaped an alleged sex attacker by biting down on his penis after he forced her to give him oral sex, police say.

The woman, who has not been named, allegedly ate away at Spencer Franklin’s privates after he reportedly broke into her home last Thursday morning, Metro UK has reported.

After sneaking into the house in Kansas City, Missouri, he is said to have climbed on top of her and said ‘It’s OK. I’m not going to hurt you.’

He is then said to have forced himself on the woman, who was so frightened her knife-wielding attacker was going to stab her whatever she did that she bit down on him.

That prompted him to knife her in the torso and thigh, reports say, with the woman managing to escape to the front door as her roommate returned from walking her dog.

They called the police, with doorbell camera footage leading cops to Franklin, 24.

The woman he is accused of attacking later identified him from a police line-up.

When he was arrested, police found teeth marks on his penis, which was still bleeding, it is claimed.

His alleged victim is recovering from the stab wounds he reportedly inflicted on her, which required stitches.  (Punch)

I’ll Help Suck Your Breast To Make It Bigger, Raped Daughter Recounts Her Father’s Words

By John Chikezie

 

 

An 18-year old girl, who is a victim of sexual abuse, yesterday told an Ikeja Special Offence and Domestic violence Court, Lagos that her 52 -year -old father, Folorunso Oluwaseun had sexual intercourse with her for four years in order to enhance her private parts.

Testifying before Justice Sybil Nwaka, the victim (name withheld) said that the sexual abuse began when she was 12-years old while she was living with him at their Ikorodu residence in Lagos.

While being led in evidence by the prosecuting counsel, Babajide Boye, she said, “I was staying with my father with my four other siblings, (two boys and two girls) in a room apartment”.

“My father called me and said that my breast is not as big as that of my mates and that he would help me suck it with his mouth so that it can get bigger.

“I was in JSS 3 when he started. He asked me to sleep with him on the bed and he began to suck my breasts.

“The following day, I told my younger sister about the incident and she condemned it.

“The following week, he told me that I am not as fat as my mates and that he help pour sperm inside me so that I can be as fat as my peers.

“I allowed him have sex with me and thereafter, he gave me salt water to drink,” she said.

The victim further told the court that her mother left her father’s house in the year 2012 as the duo were always having marital issues.

“My father continued to abuse me sexually and when I told my younger sister about it, she said it is a curse and that the bible condemns it.

“I said same to my dad but he said it is not a curse because God knows that he does not have a wife.

“I attempted to stop him but he denied me and my siblings food for days until I gave in again.

“He said the more he continues to have sex with me, the more it will help him make more money to take care of us.

“My mum came but left again after about a month. He stopped when she was around and started again when she left.

“I didn’t tell my mum because he said I should not tell her. We usually go to the Apostolic church camp every year and he told me that his sister reported him to his mum and rather than rebuking him, she told him not to get me pregnant. I told my sister and she said my dad family don’t like us at all”

“In 2016, my mother came back to stay with us, she caught us one night when my father was trying to have sex with me. She screamed and my father threatened to kill her.

“my mother later took my siblings and me to Ibadan where she was formerly residing.

“I was teaching in a small school in Ibadan and we used to call him to send us money but he will say until we come back to Ikorodu. I didn’t want to go back so I went to the proprietress of the school to request for a salary increment.

“she asked of my dad after I complained that the pay was too small for my family upkeep and I told her everything I went through in the hands of my father.

“She said she knows someone who can help me at justice development peace commission at Basorun Ibadan. I told them all that happened and they said they will help me but I have to come to Lagos and they gave us a number to call at Alausa, Ikeja”

“we were directed to Justice Development Peace Commission in Ibadan but we were referred to Alausa Ikeja and I was asked to report at the police station.

“I was referred to Miracle centre to run a test. After the test, we went back to the police station and we later went to arrest my father in Ikorodu.

While being cross-examined by the defence counsel, Worker Oduagbaka, the victim maintained that she was living in a room apartment but a room was later added to it, making a room and parlour.

However, Oluwaseun was arraigned on a 2 count charge bordering on sexual assault and defilement of a minor.

Justice Nwaka adjourned the matter till June 21, 2018, for the continuation of trial.      (New Telegraph)

Herdsmen Murderous Activities Serious Threat To Nigeria’s Unity – PPN Chair |RN

Fulani-Herdsmen-Attack-Benue

By Ojieva Ehiosun 

Chairperson of the Peoples Party of Nigeria (PPN), Edo State chapter, Pastor Tracy Ebun Agol, has warned Nigerians not to fall to the antics of the cabal, who are calling the shots in the country, using the Fulani herdsmen to cause trouble in the country.

Agol, who stressed that God would soon convert their craftiness into foolishness, said: “Presently, there is mopping up of firearms and also seizure of arms license across the country, this is sort of buttressing the fear that the government wants to disarm the generality of Nigerians so that when you’re attacked you cannot defend yourself. “We say no to this and we know that God will arise on behalf of Nigerians and frustrate all the plots of these people who call themselves cabal.

They’re so crafty but God will convert their craftiness to foolishness.”Agol, who was the governorship candidate of the party in 2016 governorship, said the menace of Fulani herdsmen should not be handled with kids’ gloves.

She added: “The issue of herdsmen should be taken seriously. The herdsmen we are talking about are not Nigerians. They are from neighbouring countries. “Some of them got into the country through jihad while others came into the country when a governor of one of the northern states employed their services for election purposes. Somehow, they became disgruntled and they started unleashing mayhem which spread to other parts of the country.

“Also, we should know that President Muhammadu Buhari is a life patron of the Fulani herdsmen and that’s why the issue of grazing has come up in Nigeria. They’re proposing a grazing bill and cattle colonies.  (New Telegraph)

Dapchi Girls: Military Accuses Amnesty Int’l Of Undermining Terrorism War |RN

By Emmanuel Onani, Abuja

 

Dapchi-girls-Amensty-International

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ), has accused Amnesty International (AI) of undermining efforts at ending the ongoing counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism war in the North East.

In its reaction to claims by AI, that it received phone calls hours before the attack on Government Girls’ Science and Technical College in Dapchi, Yobe State, the DHQ challenged the global watchdog to come clean on its allegation, which it described as false.

This was as the Nigeria Police also debunked claims that it ran away when the suspected terrorist elements struck.

In a statement by the Acting Director of Defence Information (DDI), Brig-Gen. John Agim, the military questioned the motive of AI, insisting that the global body had consistently demonstrated hatred for the Armed Forces of Nigeria.

To buttress his position, Agim said AI had released similar reports in January and February, wherein it cast doubt on the gains of the military.

It, therefore, concluded that the organisation was undertaking a campaign of calumny against the State.

” Amnesty International always brings out damming reports about the Nigerian Military at strategic points. They did that in the previous administration and the United States invoked the Leahy Law against Nigeria at the peak of the Boko Haram insurgency.

“Within this year, Amnesty International issued reports against the Military in January 2018, February 2018 and now March 2018. The question is; what is the motive of the AI?”, Agim. The DDI drew parallels with what happened during the last administration, saying the latest campaign was aimed at scuttling the latest cooperation between the United States and the Federal Government, on the supply of arms to clear remnants of Boko Haram.

” The question is; what is the motive of the AI? The answer is simple; President Donald Trump of the United States of America has agreed to collaborate with the current government of Nigeria to end the insurgency in the North East and AI wants to do everything within its powers to make sure that the US-Nigeria anti-terrorism cooperation does not succeed in accordance with their paymasters’ design.

” The question Amnesty International has not answered satisfactorily is; which of the security forces and what unit was informed that a convoy of Boko Haram fighters were heading towards Dapchi where they abducted Dapchi school girls? What was the telephone numbers used to inform the Military or the Police?

“Why has AI refused to communicate its findings with the Federal Government’s Committee set up to investigate what happened before, during and after Dapchi girls abduction? Is AI trying to undermine the outcome of this committee? The answer is simple, AI is not ready to contribute towards finding a solution to our problems, if anything, they are ready to complicate the problems”, Agim said.

According to the Defence spokesman: ” Within the military and amongst well-meaning Nigerians at home and in the diaspora, we know that AI is an organ established to embark on an orchestrated campaign of calumny against the Nigerian Military and undermine its laudable achievements against Boko Haram.

“Unfounded and inaccurate reports such as this by AI is completely unacceptable, and only exist in the figment of AI imaginations and should be discountenanced by well-meaning Nigerians and foreign friendly nations.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Armed Forces of Nigeria is more than ever, poised to bring the activities of Boko Haram Terrorists to a complete end and no amount of discouraging fabrications by the AI will deter the military from achieving its constitutionally assigned responsibilities. The defence of our national territorial integrity is our utmost goal and as such the Armed Forces in conjunction with sister security agencies will continue to strive towards entrenching peace in the North-East and indeed every part of this great nation. .”

Agim continued: “Apart from questioning the motive of Amnesty International, it is pertinent to state that most of their narratives are outright falsehood and a calculated attempt to whip up sentiments and mislead unsuspecting Nigerians, demoralise friendly nations and people collaborating with security forces to end the forces of evil in the North-East.

“For the avoidance of doubts, no security force was informed of Dapchi school girls abduction as alleged by AI. The Nigerian public and the International Community should know that the Armed Forces of Nigeria is a professional military and has attained the highest form of professionalism in line with international best practices.

” And so, could not have ignored warnings of Boko Haram attack only to work tirelessly to get the girls back.”.

Meanwhile, the Yobe State Police Command has said it did not abdicate its responsibility on the day of the attack.

A statement by the Command’s Commissioner of Police, read: ” The attention of the Yobe State Police Command has been drawn to the publication… of 20/03/2018 on the issue of the Dapchi attack that the Police was informed hours before the attack on Dapchi town on 19/02/2018.

“The assertion is nothing but a mere speculation on its time frame as it is completely not correct.

“Furthermore, the insinuation that the Police ran away is not true as the only near fatal casualty was a Policeman wounded and now recuperating in the hospital.

“The Yobe State Police Command will continue to cooperate with other security agencies in ensuring safety and protection of lives and property of people of Yobe State.” (New Telegraph)

Man Accused Of Impregnanting, Aborting Three Times For Wife’s Sister |RN

Mukaila-Bello
                                        The accused: Mukaila Bello

Samson Folarin

An orphan, Basirat, has been taken into protective custody by the Lagos State Government after she was allegedly abused by people who should have protected her.

First was her teacher, then her sister’s husband.

PUNCH Metro learnt that Basirat had been put in the care of her sister who lived in the Ajah area of Lagos State, after her parents died in 2014 when she was barely 15.

She was enrolled in a private school in Ikota, where a teacher, Folorunsho Joseph, 34, allegedly drugged and deflowered her.

Her sister’s husband, 37-year-old Mukaila Bello, allegedly took advantage of the incident and defiled her repeatedly until she became pregnant.

Bello, an indigene of Kwara State, has four children and works with a charity organisation on Victoria Island, Lagos State.

After forcing Basirat to have an abortion in a chemist’s, Bello was alleged to have continued to have sex with her until she became pregnant the second time.

He allegedly took her to a hospital in the Orile area of the state where another abortion was carried out.

The victim reportedly informed her grandparent, who relocated her to the Ijebu Ode area of Ogun State to live with some in-laws.

Bello allegedly visited and defiled her at the new place, which resulted in a third pregnancy.

He was said to have made her to have an abortion for the third time.

The victim’s family members subsequently petitioned the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender.

Basirat was taken to the Mirabel Centre, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, where medical tests were carried out on her.

The test results reportedly confirmed that she was defiled.

Basirat, who spoke with our correspondent, said her ordeal started after her parents died.

She said, “After their death, I went to stay with my sister in Ajah where I was enrolled in a secondary school in Ikota. One day, my teacher asked me to bring a textbook from his house. When I got there, he gave me something to drink and I slept off. By the time I woke up, he had deflowered me. When I got home, I told my sister and her husband. They went to the teacher’s house with a policeman, but he had fled.

“After the incident, my sister’s husband started making advances at me. One day, we went to take one of his children from school and he stopped by at a hotel. He said he wanted to sleep with me, but I refused. He said he had taken a drug already. He forced himself on me in the presence of the small child.”

She said she could not tell her sister because she had high blood pressure, adding that the abuse continued until she became pregnant sometime in 2015.

Basirat said the suspect pleaded with her not to tell anyone so as not to “destroy the family,” adding that she had an abortion.

She said the abuse went on until she became pregnant the second time in 2016 and was forced to have another abortion.

“I had the chance to stop living in the house when I went for a festival with my grandpa in Agbowa, Ikorodu. I told him that I was not returning to Ajah because my sister’s husband had impregnated and aborted for me twice,” she added.

She claimed that an aunt who stayed in London arranged for her relocation to Ijebu Ode, the hometown of her (the aunt’s) in-laws.

Basirat claimed that while she was waiting to go to Ijebu Ode, Bello used the grandpa’s phone to speak with her.

“He called my grandpa and asked him to give me the phone. He queried me for telling them about what had been happening and ordered that I recant my statements, but I refused.

“He (Bello) later said he wanted to give me a phone and he would bring it to Ijebu Ode. Shortly after I got to Ijebu Ode in May 2017, he came visiting and slept with me. He did it about three times. He said his friend stayed in Ijebu Ode. I became pregnant the third time and he gave me money for the abortion,” she said.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the suspect allegedly became desperate to have Basirat back and pestered her to call her grandpa and deny her allegations against him.

When she didn’t bulge, the suspect was alleged to have started monitoring her activities on Facebook through the phone he gave her in Ijebu Ode.

Basirat said she had added a male colleague in a tailoring shop on Facebook when the suspect called and accused her of having a boyfriend.

“He called the person I was staying with on the telephone. He told the man that he should chase me away from the house because I was evil.

“The family asked me what was going on and I told them it was my sister’s husband and he had already threatened that if I didn’t return to his house, he would do something to make sure those I was living with chase me out,” she added.

However, the daughter of the man with whom Basirat lived in Ijebu Ode, Kaosara, said Bello was known to her family as Basirat’s boyfriend.

She said, “On August 8, 2017, we saw a mobile phone in Basirat’s wardrobe. My stepmother spoke with him (Bello) on the telephone and he confirmed that he gave her the phone. He said he wanted to marry her. He and my stepmother spoke frequently on the phone. I also spoke with me a couple of times.”

She said she warned Basirat not to have another boyfriend since she had a serious suitor.

Kaosara said the relationship progressed and she once asked the suspect for money for Basirat’s aso ebi for a wedding, and he allegedly sent N4,000.

“All this while, we never knew Mukaila (Bello) was Basirat’s sister’s husband. However, we noticed that he was always monitoring her.

“One day, the girl got fed up and she confessed that the man was her sister’s husband who after impregnating her twice, followed her to Ijebu Ode and impregnated her the third time. She said she had told him she was not interested in the relationship, but he had refused to let go of her,” she said.

Kaosara’s stepmother, Asisat, claimed that Bello gave her beverages while introducing himself as a suitor, which she rejected.

She said she was surprised at their age difference and asked the 37-year-old why he was not married.

“He said it was a long story. He said he was serious about marrying Basirat. I asked the girl about the man’s wife and she said he had chased her away. She didn’t say he was her sister’s husband.

“When the secret leaked, the man confessed to me and said he needed to ask for her forgiveness. He later told me he had actually slept in our house the previous day and forgot a phone, a T-shirt, a power bank, and an ATM card. He sent one Friday from Ajah to pick the items.

“Because we wanted to end the immoral relationship between him and the girl, we quickly handed over all the items to Friday, including the girl’s phone. We also destroyed her SIM card. However, the polythene bag in which the boy took away the items tore and two cheques fell. I angrily tore one; Kaosara kept the second cheque,” she added.

Officials of the OPD were said to have reported the case at the Area J Police Command, Elemoro, and the suspect was arrested.

Our correspondent was told that the suspect denied the allegations, including the claim that he visited Ijebu Ode to see Basirat.

A source at the OPD, however, said investigations by the agency revealed that the abortion took place in three different places.

He noted that the teacher who first raped her in 2014 and one of those who conducted the abortions had been arrested.

He said, “The girl was 15 when the teacher defiled her at Ikota. The main perpetrator, Bello, father of four children, took advantage of that and raped her as well. He forced three abortions on her.

“The teacher, who changed school after the act, has been arrested at his new school in Ikota.

“Although the main perpetrator is denying the allegations, the people at Ijebu Ode found a cheque he forgot in the victim’s room and he will have to explain how it got there, among other evidences against him.”

The Director of the OPD, Mrs. Olubukola Salami, described the acts as “heinous”, saying justice would be done.

She said, “We will continue to ensure that perpetrators of such dastardly acts are brought to book, especially in view of the inauguration of the sexual offences court in Lagos State. OPD affirms its stand with the Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, that there will be no room for sexual offenders in the state.”

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, confirmed the incident, adding that the suspects had been arraigned before an Igbosere Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

A charge sheet obtained by our correspondent showed that the main suspect, Bello; the teacher, Joseph; and the chemist, Amaechi Emmanuel, were arraigned on four counts before Magistrate Patrick Adekomaiya.

While Bello was arraigned on counts of unlawful defilement and procurement of abortion with N15,000, Joseph was arraigned for unlawful defilement.

The third suspect, Emmanuel, was arraigned for carrying out an unlawful abortion.

The police prosecutor, Friday Mameh, who stood in for the resident prosecutor, Peace Chukwudi, said the offences were contrary to sections 137 and 147 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011.

Adekomaiya, who was represented by another magistrate, N.A. Layeni, admitted each of the three defendants to bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties each in like sum.

Layeni said each of the sureties must present evidence of tax payments and must deposit N10,000 to the Chief Registrar’s account.

The case was adjourned till February 22, 2018.   (Punch)
