How My Friend Sent Men To Beat, Rape Me, Lady Recounts Ordeal

A Nigerian lady, identified simply, as Ebube Nna on Twitter, has shared her ordeal on how a friend of hers, identified only as Bukky, who she accommodated for years, contracted criminals to ‘Rape and Beat’ her in her house.

Evidence from the crime scene, Nna, pointed at Bukky who was immediately arrested and subsequently confessed to the crime on how she ganged up with the men to cause mayhem. One of the men turned out to be Bukky’s boyfriend, who just came out from prison after being remanded for years.

Nna, who narrated the incident from her hospital bed, said the incident occurred on 12 November at around 8pm. She stated that she scream and fought for her life when unsuspected men came into her home while she was bathing.

She explained that she accommodated Bukky for years before eventually moving out due to her suspicious behaviour, noting that she had not spoken to Bukky for months only to be greeted by her presence on the said evening of the incident.

According to the distraught lady, Bukky was the first to come around while she (Nna) was in the shower. Bukky, she said, enquired if Nna was alone before ushering the men inside.

Nna wrote: “On Friday 12/11/2021, past 8pm I was in my bathroom having a bath when I heard footsteps in my balcony, I paused for a minute and listened to the footsteps approach my door so I asked who it was and Bukky, a girl that lived in my house for years before I left early this year.

“I was shocked because she rarely comes around and even if she wanted to, she usually calls first. I told her to come in that I was having a bath. We exchanged pleasantries and I asked why she came around and she told me that she wanted to check on me.

“She asked if I was alone and I said yes, she asked again if my sister isn’t back and I said yes. She said alright and left while I was still having my bath”.

Nna said she came out of the bathroom without fear of any imminent danger and walked to pick up her phone as there was no electricity. A few seconds later, she said she heard another footstep and thought Bukky came back.

Thoughts, however, turned to a nightmare as unknown men pushed her door opened and pounced on her heavily.

Meanwhile, her neighbour who was upstairs was watching a movie with earphones plugged on and could not hear Nna screaming, she said.

“They pushed me into the room to my bed and one was repeatedly hitting me. When I realized what was about to happen, I started fighting harder. I got up, made it to my door which of course they didn’t know how to jam as it requires prior knowledge to jam and I ran out miraculously straight to my neighbours door, and kept calling for help.

“They caught up with me in split seconds and the beating continued while trying to drag me inside,” she said.

Nna revealed the men were working based on the information given to them by Bukky, who told her that no one was around to save her. This plan was brought to a halt after another neighbour of hers upstairs eventually heard the screams and came to her rescue. Nna was knocked unconscious as the men whisked away.

“My neighbour friend who was sleeping heard the noise, woke up and tapped her to remove her earpiece and quickly they came to my rescue. When they (the men) saw that someone was in the room, they quickly hit me with a pistol-like wood. I Collapsed and they ran out the gate”.

The culprits were eventually caught following a piece of clothing they used to cover their faces that was recovered from the crime scene. Nna immediately recognized the item as a bedsheet she gifted Bukky.

When brought in for questioning, Bukky, Nna said, admitted the bedsheet was hers and the men did not come to steal, rather to ‘rape and beat” her friend.

“When they brought Bukky in for questioning she admitted the bedsheet was hers and identified the boys. Apparently one is her boyfriend and he just got out of prison where he was remanded for a different crime and the police confirmed my case was the third case and he actually has a court hearing on the 16th for another pending case.

“During questioning, it was discovered that they didn’t come to steal but rather rape and beat me which is crazy because according to the IPO you don’t use such weapon to beat someone, you use it to kill,” Nna narrated.

Femi Fani Kayode and Precious Chikwendu

Precious Chikwendu, estranged wife of the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has revealed how founder of Synagogue, Church of All Nations, Late Temitope Balogun Joshua and Leader of the Indigenous Peoples Of Biafra (IPOB), called her to plead over beatings from estranged husband.

Speaking in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, she described the marriage as a violent one, saying the beatings were more serious at the course of embryo implant.

She said: “Even during the course of the embryo implanting in me, I had the most violent experience, beatings and punches and he will tell me that he would get rid of me. He will ask his bodyguards to take me and lock me up inside.”

“The Dasukis have been involved, both Colonel Dasuki Sambo and his wife have been involved. Nnamdi Kanu, even at some point, has called me to plead with me. I got a call from late T. B Joshua to at least come over to Lagos, that he wants to settle the issue.

“The first thing he is going to ask is for a picture to debunk stories, that’s the first thing he does; whenever there’s a fight… He says it’s a cultural thing for the Igbo to be rude and that is why we don’t have a hierarchy. I heard all of that from him. Even the staff in the house, that you are an Igbo staff is a problem. He says ‘that Igbo boy, I don’t like him, sack him.

“The children are with him, I haven’t seen them since August 2nd, 2020. The court didn’t grant him custody. I’m physically prevented from seeing them. Most times, I would agitate because my kids are in there, I can’t leave.”

“I don’t know where my kids are, I don’t know the school he changed my sons to. I’m told they go to school. The last time I filed a suit in court, they said the children are in school and they are okay,” she said.
