The victim said that on March 4 while at her sister’s house at Agbo- Oba area, she received a call from an unknown number and that in the course of discussion, she discovered that it was Sunday Akano, a friend to her husband. She said Akano told her that her husband was with him in his house and that she should join them.
The complainant alleged that when she arrived the suspect’s house, she asked after her husband, but Sunday held her at the neck and threatened to kill her if she struggled with him. She added that he overpowered her and raped her.
