Four weeks after confessing to raping an underage schoolgirl on October, 26, 2018, in Makoko, Lagos, a rapist has been dealt with by the community elders.
When the case was first reported, the suspect faced a panel of elders and was made to sign an undertaking not to do such again. .
To prevent the case from getting to the court of law, the elders had promised that they would address it according to the community’s rules. So, today, the suspect was flogged mercilessly as a punishment.
