A 23 year old Muslim cleric, Mustapha Hammed was on Monday paraded by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly defiling a 29 year old student of College of Education Akoka, simply identified as Rukayat.
Investigations into the matter revealed that the cleric who defied Rukayat in the name of spiritual cleansing from untimely death had also wiped blood from her private part with a white handkerchief which resulted in a mental disorder.
Edgal who paraded the suspect before Journalists at the command Headquarters in Ikeja stated that the case of sexual assault by penetration was first reported at the Bariga Police Station before it was transfered to the Gender Section of the command on his instruction.
The State Police Commissioner said, “The suspect in the case is one Mustapha Hammed who claims to be an Alfa. The said Alfa was introduced to the survivor through a mutual friend.
“ The Alfa deceived the 29-year-old student saying he saw in a vision that she was going to die within 24 hours. He took the girl to Ikorodu, Lagos for cleansing so that she would not die.
“ At Ikorodu, he forcefully had canal knowledge of the girl said to be a virgin as at then. He thereafter allegedly wiped off her blood with a white handkerchief and since then, her father alleged that the girl has been behaving abnormally because she was completely devastated and traumatized by the incident.”
Justifying his action, Hammed said his action was out of love. He claimed he had loved the Survivor for long and didn’t know how to tell her.
He said the alleged vision, spiritual and sexual cleansing was all a strategy to get in between Rukayat’s legs.
He said, “It all happened on April 7th, 2018 when I called Rukayaat, a friend to my girlfriend to come to my mum’s house. I told her I had seen a vision for her while I was praying that she had a spiritual husband.
I told her the solution is to bath three times with a soap I will give to her. I told her I would take her to my house in Ikorodu for the bath which she agreed.
We went there and she went to bath the first time and while I was praying for the water to do the second bathing, I quickly put a dead frog in the water. When she got to the bathroom and saw the frog, she was afraid and ran out to inform me.
I told her that was bad omen, that the only solution is to immediately do some prayers and then do a sexual cleansing which entails having sexual intercourse with a man. She was scared and said she would do all it takes to be free. So I asked her to call her boyfriend. She said her boyfriend was far away, she pleaded I help her.
She didn’t know that I had put the frog because I have been looking for a way to tell her I loved her and have a sexual relationship with her. So I disflowered her. I didn’t wipe her private part with any white handkchief.
Was even surprised that over a month after I was arrested for allegedly using her for ritual.
