Three suspected fraudsters have been arrested and charged before a Lagos court for obtaining N600,000 from a lady they gang raped.
The suspects were Chibueze Osuji, 37, Lawrence Nwogu, 44 and Anthony Nwadike.
The victim (name withheld), who was accosted on her way to Church at Arida area of Idimu, Lagos, was taken to an undisclosed location where she was defrauded and raped.
A woman who identified herself as Prophetess Patience Adams, according to reports, approached her and gave her prophecies of impending danger on her and her family, before taking her to a place where the three suspects allegedly hypnotized and made her to withdraw the said amount of money from her account, with the promise to double it later.
She was then returned to the house in Idimu where the three men took turns to rape her before asking her to come back on a later date to collect the money they promised to double for her.
As she returned on the said date, she met the house empty and so it dawned on that she has been duped.
The suspects who were arrested by the police after the report got to them, have been taken to Ezigbo Magistrates court and charged for conspiracy and fraud.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs J.O.E. Ajayi granted the suspects bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum as they pleaded not guilty.
The matter was adjourned till 31 October, 2017, with suspects being remanded in prison custody pending when they will perfect their bail condition.
