church friends. The lady had her
birthday on Tuesday, July 19, and she
invited all youths in the church who
were her friends. Damilola, however,
did not come. He, thereafter, called
her to apologise and promised to
make it up.
“On the following Sunday, Damilola
called her that he had set up a makeup
party and that the two were going to a
restaurant. However, he took her to
his house in the estate, and locked her
up. He beat her up and raped her.

she reported the matter at the police
station. On Monday, she, accompanied
by other church youth executive, went
