“They asked my wife and her sisters to take off their clothes and were about raping them when they heard gunshot from the police. That was how God saved all three women from being raped. They fled my apartment. Escaped through the back fence and landed on the roof of a hotel on Momodu Street. They took their time in robbing us and they were calling themselves MOPOL.
