A prophetess in the Celestial Church of Christ, Agbogbo Parish, Akure has paid a dire price for walking alone in the dark.

While returning from the evening service at the church on Tuesday, she was allegedly attacked by a security guard who dragged her to a secluded area, raped and dispossessed her of 700 Naira.

A neighbour in the area who confirmed the incident said she heard their movement from her room and noticed something was wrong.

"I was the only one in the house and our area, being a new site was too lonely and dangerous to make any attempt to find out what it was because it was already dark.

"Although, I knew something was amiss with the movement and their inaudible conversation, but I didn't know it was a rape case."

A member of the church, Miss Grace Odesola said they always go home in group after their weekly service but was surprised she was alone that night.

"It is very unusual for any of our member especially our women to go home alone whenever we finish our weekly service due to the loneliness of the road.

"Most times, the road is dark and it can be easy for hoodlums to carry out their evil acts.

"And on several times, our Shepard has told us to always walk in a group during the night after the service. So am surprised to hear this."

According to the Ondo State Police spokesman, Femi Joseph, the suspect, Longbab Bouguen, had been arrested with his accomplice after a complaint was lodged by the victim.

Joseph confirmed that the suspect, who confessed to the crime claimed that he actually targeted the 700 Naira on the victim and did not intend to rape her.
