The suspect, Victor Emafolomi, 40, a resident of Agbado, Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, reportedly raped his victim, identified only as Keji in his home on two occasions.
He however threatened to kill her after committing the acts.
“That afternoon, he was drunk. He beat me up when I resisted. I explained to him that he was like a father to me, but he didn’t listen. He used a pillow to cover my mouth and raped me. He said he would kill me if I told my mother about the rape”, she said.
