A couple has been arrested and charged before a Lagos Magistrates court after allegedly drugged and raped a married woman in a hotel and put it on social media.

It is reported that 32-year old Obinna admitted in his confessional statement to the police that he did so as a revenge over the business transaction between him and the victim’s husband, Kenneth, which later turned sour.

According to the father of two kids, he collected the sum of N1.2 million from the victim’s husband and when he was unable to pay, he then planned to blackmail Kenneth by sexually assault his wife so he could forget the money.

The victim of the rape and mother of four said what transpired between her and the couple.

She narrated that the couple relocated to Lagos from another State last year and moved into their compound and they later became family friends.

She said her husband loaned the suspect the money for importation of clothes and when her husband started demanding the money from him, he then planned to blackmail the family.

The woman said because they were family friends, when Obinna put a call to her husband to send her to the popular hotel in Lagos to collect the money, she however did not suspect any foul play.

She said when she got to the hotel and she was offered a drink which she drank and thereafter became unconscious, she was taken to a room where she was stripped naked, raped by Obinna while his wife used her phone to record the act and then posted it on the social media.

An earlier report says Obinna Arthur and his wife, Chinyere Arthur were arrested and charged before a Lagos court for their alleged involvement in the criminal act.

The presiding Magistrate granted them bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.

They were remanded in prison custody pending when they will perfect their bail and the matter adjourned.
