A medical doctor, Dr Mistura Shogunle has narrated before an Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court how a 13-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped by seven men in her neighbourhood.
Tribune reports that Dr Shogunle gave the narration during the trial of a 20-year-old fashion designer, Rasheed Fashola over two counts of conspiracy and defilement of a child.

While being led in evidence, by the state prosecutor, Mrs Olasunbo Abiodun-Muniru, the medical doctor working at the Mirabel Centre (a sexual assault referral centre) said that the survivor came seeking medical attention on Sept. 28, 2020, a day after she was allegedly defiled.
“The client said that on Sept. 27, 2020, which was a Sunday, her father sent her on an errand and seven boys in the neighbourhood stopped her.

They dragged her into an uncompleted building, her mouth was covered with a handkerchief and they took turns to rape her through unprotected penile intercourse into her vagina” Shogunle said

The doctor noted that the survivor was calm and clinically stable during the medical examination and that she had no obvious physical injuries on the child.
“There were however significant genital findings. The labia majora was normal while the labia minora (inner lips of the genital) had a resolving bruise.
“The natural covering of the vagina called the hymen was absent. There were no significant anal findings.
The general findings are in keeping with recent blunt force penetration into her vagina which could have been caused by penile vagina penetration as declared verbally by the client” she said
The doctor also a certified forensic sexual assault examiner, noted in her testimony that she had asked the survivor’s father who had accompanied her to throw more light on what had happened to his daughter.
