Lady es­capes rapist in Mabushi

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Ogechi Jaiyes­imi

A27-year-old fash­ion de­signer, Anoyi Joy, dur­ing the week es­caped from a man who at­tacked her with the in­ten­tion of rap­ing her in Gishiri, Mabushi.

Ac­cord­ing to the vic­tim, who spoke to our reporter ex­clu­sively, she was at a friend’s al­bum launch at Unity Foun­tain when sud­denly a young man who claimed to be the driver of a House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives mem­ber ap­proached her and claimed to have been sent by his boss to call her at­ten­tion.

She said the driver iden­ti­fied him­self as Pius and that his boss who is a fed­eral leg­is­la­tor has been watch­ing her but could not ap­proach her di­rect be­cause of his po­si­tion in the so­ci­ety.

“He re­quested for my phone num­ber and I obliged him. The fol­low­ing day, the leg­is­la­tor con­tacted me and in­sisted we see that day. As a fash­ion de­signer, I was ea­ger to see him. He called me and in­sisted we meet at NEXT Cash and Carry. I closed very late that day but I said since I was go­ing to Kubwa, I de­cided to stop by the su­per­mar­ket,” she said.

She re­vealed that when she drove to the su­per­mar­ket, she called the leg­is­la­tor who told her that his driver would pick her up and the driver even­tu­ally did.

She said the driver came, en­tered her car and or­dered her to drive to a place in Gishiri where the road ends. She then asked him where his boss was and that was when he grabbed her.

“I started beg­ging God to de­liver me be­cause I thought I was go­ing to be killed since the in­ci­dent hap­pened around 8.00p.m.and there was no­body around. I ran out from the car and en­tered a bush and was scream­ing be­fore I got to the po­lice sta­tion and my car was sub­se­quently re­cov­ered by the Mabushi po­lice divi­sion.

When con­tacted, Mabushi Di­vi­sional Po­lice Of­fi­cer, Chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Ay­obami Su­ra­judeen, con­firmed the in­ci­dent and stated that the crim­i­nal ap­proached her and claimed that his master wanted to be her friend and they ex­changed num­bers.
