Man Recounts Sad Story of How He was Raped, Arrested & Jailed on GuardianTV | Watch




Ayomide Idowu, a caterer, was called for a job one day, unfortunately, there was no job. It was a setup.

He met the supposed client, who them took him to a place where he was raped by some men, beaten up, and robbed of his cash and mobile phone.

He was left alone to walk back home; that was when he was arrested by officers of the Nigeria Police Force who didn’t give him the opportunity to share his experience.

Ayomide and the others who were arrested by the officers on the same day were asked to pay N20,000 each to be released. He didn’t have any money so he remained locked up.

After three days, he was transferred to the Alausa task Force office, from where he was charged. He was then sentenced to 2 months and 2 weeks imprisonment.

Ayomide shared how a higher court revisited his case file after the sentencing, and found him not guilty of any wrongdoing. He was then discharged and acquitted.

Ayomide said he hopes people can learn a thing or two from his life-threatening experience.

    So no public defender or state appointed lawyer? also no compensation?

    what was the charge?

    But the story is a bit odd too, men raping men in Nigeria? I always thought the fear of rape is something women only have to deal with in Nigeria, well apart from lawyers and accounts raping us all.

    Thank God he is free now. What an ordeal. Makes me so sad for him. Is there a way one can reach him to contribute to him starting up his catering business?
