An Islamic cleric, simply identified as Alfa Quadri, has been arrested for allegedly raping a 22-year-old lady after he collected hair samples from her genital, armpit and head.
Quadri was alleged to have tricked the victim, Elizabeth, to his house at Abule-Ojo Village, Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State for a prayer and raped her after shaving and collecting hair samples from her private part, armpit and head.
The lady said she met Quadri while she was returning from her place of work around 8.30pm on December 28, 2014.
The clergy then invited her for a special prayer at his house.
The prayer was supposed to attract favour to Elizabeth and would be conducted with other clergies.
Recalling how she got hoodwinked, Elizabeth said: “Alfa ordered me to follow him to his house, that other Muslim clerics were waiting for him there.
“He said they wanted to pray for me.
“After I had dropped my hand bag at home, I went back to meet him at his house.
“He asked me to bring money to buy red candle, which they would use for the prayer.
“I was shocked to discover that he was the only at home when I got there.”
When Elizabeth queried him over the absent clergies, he told her not to worry, that they would arrive by 3am.
Thus she was forced to spend the night at his home.
When it was 3am, Quadri woke her for the supposed prayer.
Elizabeth added: “He said I should be saying lailailala….
“While I was still reciting the verse, he ordered me to stripe naked and started praying.
“While this was going on, the mensuration pad I had on for my monthly flow was already soaked.
“When he saw this, he said I should wear my pant and sit beside him.
“He said I should shave my genital hair, my nails and hair from my head.
“He said he wanted to blend them with black soap.
“He said after he finishes the mixture, my fiancé should bath me, using the soap mixture.”
According to Elizabeth, after she had given him everything he requested for, she went to bed.
She was however shocked to see Quadri climbing into bed with her.
Before she could get over her shock, he had raped her.
