A man decided to rape his girlfriend’s sister because his girlfriend was not home when he came looking for her, police in Nigeria said.
Babatunde Ojo, 27, was arrested and brought before a Magistrate’s Court in Lagos on Tuesday, after he was charged with five counts of theft, assault, rape, attempted murder and destruction of evidence.
The defendant was accused of raping a 29-year-old woman.
Prosecutors said that the accused was dating the younger sister of the victim.
The incident happened when the defendant went to the victim’s house to visit his girlfriend, who was not home at the time. That is when he decided to forcefully have sex with the victim, prosecutors told the court.
While struggling with the victim, the accused cut her hands.
Ojo also stole the victim’s computer and camera before fleeing from the scene.
After he was arrested, Ojo denied all the allegations made against him.
