A couple, Obinna Arthur and his wife, Chinyere who reportedly raped, recorded and posted their neighbour’s wife nude video on social media has been ordered to be tried for conspiracy and rape at the Lagos High Court.

This was the outcome of the advice by Directorate of Public Prosecution, DPP, who has now taken over the matter for prosecution.

In letter dated 3 November, 2017 to the Deputy Commissioner of Police at SCIID Panti, Yaba, signed by the Assistant Director of DPP, Mr. M.T. Adeoye, the directorate stated so.

The advice stated that going by the facts available in the duplicate case file, that it was obvious there were sufficient facts to establish prima facie case of sexual assault and sending of obscene pictures on social media by the suspects.

It further stated that the case file revealed that Obinna called the husband of the victim, one Kenneth Nwakaji to come and collect his N1.2m share of the profit they made on a business transaction they had together. But Kenneth was unable to go and had to send his wife who was the victim to go to the hotel and collect the money on his behalf.

P.M.EXPRESS reports that when the wife went to the hotel in Egbeda area of Lagos, Obinna offered her a bottle of Guinness malt drink which she drank and immediately became unconscious. It was scooped that Obinna removed all her clothes in the hotel room and sexually assaulted her.

He recorded the video of the whole assault on his phone as a bargaining power to her husband to forget his own share of the profit.

When the victim – a mother of three kids regained her consciousness, she discovered that she was totally Unclad and was then shown the video of the assault.

She could not raise alarm because she was scared of losing her marriage.

However, on 27 March 2017 she discovered that her nude pictures had gone viral in the neighbourhood and it was traced to Obinna’s wife, Chinyere.

The DPP informed the police that the duplicated file brought to their office was retained to enable the office to obtain the necessary information papers to file the matter at the High Court.

P.M.EXPRESS had earlier reported the incident after the police at Area M Command, Idimu arrested the couple at Santos Estate in Akowonjo, Lagos.

When the matter came up at the Magistrates court, it could not hold as the matter was now billed for Lagos High Court.

P.M.EXPRESS gathered that the couple who had four kids had remained in prison custody because their relations refused to bail them.
