2 Beninoise men who allegedly raped a Nigerian girl in Makoko area of Lagos recently have been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment with hard labour.
The two suspects were on Tuesday sent to jail by a Lagos judge after raping a 20-year-old street hawker.
The girl hawking sweets around Yansiwhe area of Makoko was called in by the suspects who bought sweets from her, but refused to pay her instead they raped her until she became unconscious.
The men, who were six in number, took turns to rape her until she fainted. They later revived her and asked her to leave the primary school premises where the incident took place and go home to take care of herself. But instead of going home she went straight to Yaba police station where she reported the matter.
40-year-old Setonji and 25-year-old Abraham Huvensu, 25, pictured above were later arrested and arraigned.
4 other rapists have reportedly fled the country back to The Republic of Benin but efforts are being made to arrest them.
They were found guilty yesterday by a Chief Magistrate and sentenced to 10 years each with hard labour.
