Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a 39-year-old man for allegedly raping his friend’s wife on her matrimonial bed in the Surulere area of Lagos, who blamed his actions on the effects of alcohol.
It was gathered that the incident happened on August 22, at about 2 am when the suspect burgled the apartment of the victim and had sex with her while her husband was asleep next to her.
Narrating her side of the event, the victim claimed that she was sleeping with her husband on the same bed in their apartment when she felt she was being touched and made love to.
“Initially I thought it was my husband, until when I stretched my hand and touched my husband who was deeply asleep beside me.
“I woke up my husband, who switched on the lights and he saw his friend having sex with me.”
She further said, “The man claimed that he missed his way to his house because he was under the influence of alcohol.”
The suspect was arrested by police detectives from the Surulere division following a report lodged by the victim and her husband.
When contacted, the Divisional Police Officer, Idowu Adedeji, confirmed the incident, while the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Lagos State Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, however, said he was yet to be briefed on the incident.
