Chilling story of how some secondary school boys molested their female schoolmates in Ikoyi in broad daylight

A group of male students of the Falomo Senior High School in Ikoyi, Lagos state are currently on the run after they allegedly molested female students of Ireti Grammer school yesterday May 3rd.

According to residents of the area who confirmed the incident to a LIB reporter today, the male students had just finished their final year exams and were leaving their school premises when they saw the female students who were also leaving their school premises at the same time.

The boys who were excited that they were done with secondary school, decided that the best way to express their joy was to molest the girls in broad daylight.

The boys who were armed with scissors, cornered some of the girls, ripped their skirt with the scissor, pushed them to the floor, pulled their trousers mid length and then climbed on the girls. Some of their colleagues surrounded them and cheered them on. 
It took the intervention of some of the residents of the area to stop the boys from further molesting the girls. The girls who were frightened to go home, were escorted to the bus stop by some able bodied men in the area. 

When LIB visited the schools today, police presence was seen. No one was allowed to enter into the school. 

LIB will keep you updated.

Meanwhile, below is an account of the incident written by Facebook user...

Dear Reader,
I write this incidence with lots of mortification and great concern for what the next generation will be like in Nigeria if we do not quickly get to work repairing and paying them attention. Our elders have led their lives and we the generation who follow the baby boomers must hunker down and correct the ills in our back yards and community. It's a common saying that evil prevails when good men do nothing. Today the 3rd of May 2017, I almost saw this evil happen. 'Almost' because I got so moved in my spirit with great indignation that I decided to speak up.

I am in my office about 4pm waiting for my driver to bring my older son from school so we can get home on time to prepare the younger one for his common entrance exams into secondary school coming up in two weeks. I called the driver and he said he was around and as I leave my nieces office upstairs, I hear a lot of shouting and commotion outside our office. I then ask the receptionist what it was about and he says it's the secondary school student who have finished their final exams tearing their clothes. I mumble to my self that if any of them were my children I will deal with them. As they don't earn money so how can they tear what was bought for them.
Suffice to say I give my older son who is helping me with my bags that speech and we head out into the car. As we come outside the noise is overwhelming and as my son kept saying when we were later discussing what happened, he described it as being very intense when we had a chance to discuss the events that followed as people were running and upon my looking closer I saw pockets of people actually students and then girls running with palpable fear in their faces. At this point I quickly enter my car to leave so one doesn't meet what ever the problem was and to avoid traffic too. And as we entered the car and I look a bit closely at a crowd of boys who have surrounded two persons on the floor who appear to be fighting. Their shouting overpowers any other sound and looking closely I see the most unreal thing. It's actually a boy trying to force himself on a girl with his trousers partly down and the boys are cheering him on.
People are looking and some persons the security guards in the office near us are recording it. I open my car in disbelief and shout on the boys to break it up while shouting at my security and the second driver to assist me. I walk towards them and as I make my way towards them I see another group and this time they have cornered one of the the girls who fell while running from them. In almost a surreal way I am looking but not quickly processing. I see her kicked down, she bravely pushes her self up and another guy tries to clear her legs and she lunges at him and then a guy takes a pair of scissors in his hands and with one swoop tears her skirt from the bottom and also a part of the black spanx shorts she has on underneath. All this happens really in a few minutes and he proceeds to push himself into her through her back. His trousers is open too and another one tries to do same from the front. As this is going on the crowd of boys are wild with frenzy, cheering the two boys on, while grabbing at her hair, breasts and she is fighting for dear life. I am still making my way towards the first group but they bolt when they see me coming and when I see them do so I move ahead and rush towards the second group this time shouting at the top of my lungs at my own office security, the office next door and thankfully mine follow me and when they see us coming they break up and run but there more girls running back. I reach the girl and we gather her things together. She ties the torn skirt around her spanx shorts like a wrapper and holds onto to me.

I see the boys have run forwards and stopped, waiting for me to enter my car while threatening other teenage school girls still. I have a crowd of over 25 girls huddled together frantically telling me their various ordeal. I ask them to take another route back and am told if the go back from where they are coming there is another group behind and the our office road is a crescent so they are technically locked in. And most of them have their skirts ripped as they claim the boys in the various groups have scissors on them. Further questioning tells me the best way is to go out is towards the other side but since they are too scared to go I ask my security, some other men have come out to escort them too, with myself as the only adult female and there begins over an hours walk towards the obalende roundabout from off awolowo road in Ikoyi. We meet other girls who have had their clothes ripped as the boys fled once the boys realized I was not backing up. The boys would reach a distance and stop to taunt the girls. We now had a crowd of over 60 girls who needed to get safely to the bus stop and find their way home. We ( being myself and the other men escorting the girls) start talking about how to get hold of one of the boys so we can use him as an example. At this point I call a friend and ask for a Mopol to be sent to me. I describe my location. My attention is drawn to another girl who had just been manhandled by the fleeing boys. A woman warns the girls to beware as the boys have spilt up and are waiting as some live in that locality. We then break into three groups to escort the girls to their various bus or home points. I take the two girls whom I saw personally manhandled and begin to make careful inquiries.

Feedback shows that they go to a senior high school called Falomo Senior High School next to Ireti grammar school that these boys go to. Today was both schools final day after which they will come only to collect their results from Wednesday of the following week so the boys who had already started raping some girls last week now planned this brazen rape and manhandling activity. They had also stolen their phones and transport money. We then made arrangements to transport them home. By now the mopol has come. He walks me to obalende under bridge to put the two girls and their friends going to Yaba into a bus. This is not before I get the names of the boys as George and Abiodun as the main perpetrators, they are final year students of Ireti Grammar School SW Ikoyi. I call a friend and am told to take pictures but most of the girls have gone but we are able to take pictures of at least 7 girls with me who had torn clothes in various stages of disarray. I give my number to the only girl left with a phone and this was because she put it into her spanx shorts as she wore two and used one to roll her phone into it. I am amazed at this whole thing and we agree that they should come through to my office on Wednesday of the following week but I will go ahead and make a report to the two schools tomorrow and begin finding these evil boys so we can use them as examples to deter other from this abominable behavior perpetrated in broad day light. One of the girls says she can identify them. She gives me her number. I ask my security to ensure he receives them at 9am when we agreed to meet. I turn and leave but I will never be the same again. The evil is terrible.

The lack of regard and the indignity. My mind runs through and is still running through all I have seen. I have a friend who normally stops to help distressed persons or attend to traffic situation and I always warn him to desist and he will say someone has to do it. Today I am most grateful I was that someone. I had other people join me especially a man who saw me and said madam a girl was raped last week by this office. Am tired of this. Removed his tie and followed me. They stayed with me till the last set of kids entered the bus and as they came so they left when we got done. I did not get to say thank you to them. My older son was like mum, they must be angels or Jesus. Actually he said the man that followed me first must be Jesus. I don't know who he was but if he ever reads this post my heartfelt thank you to him for that large hearted action. God is kind oh, that there are still good men but we must speak up and as such I am following up to ensure we do something collectively to help the boys of this school as I believe mentoring is required if this cycle is to be broken but the ones who committed this dastardly act must be brought to book first. I ask those in authority to look into this as I am told it's quite prevalent.

God bless Nigeria and we all have a part in ensuring the blessing

Michale Matthew.

Governor Ambode, IG Police, Commissioner of Education, School Principal- Do YOUR WORK THIS TIME!!!
The schools have been identified, the boys can be named, the pictures are there. This must not go unpunished. These boys may be rich people sons but those girls are someone's daughters. Or should we wait for them to start waylaying teachers too?
THESE BOYS MYST BE DEALT WITH and QUICKLY. Do not hand over results to Anyone in the Ireti school until all the perpetrators have been identified and dealt with.

Madam, as for you, you are Blessed- may the Lord's protection continue to follow you and your sons forever.

My body can't stop shaking as I type this. My question is , where have we all gone wrong with this generation? God please help us raise children who know you and are equally human. Who can discern right from wrong ,Amen. Please Linda kindly use your office to see that the perpetrators of this act are brought to book. Parents be careful how you let your children use the Internet too cos I guess by watching too much porn those boys are now moved to practice what the watch too.

When we hear of some youths that are brutally killed, this is one good reason. Should those monsters waste judicial processes? As an angry parent, NO! When caught as this was, they deserve unforgettable torture or death!

And these boys come from homes and someone takes care of them! God! What has this younger generation turned into? This sounds incredible- in broad daylight! May God bless you ma, for the humanity and courage in you. You shall never lack and you and yours shall never suffer in anyway. To the schools and relevant authorities, this abomination should never go unpunished. These are rapists, and rape is a very serious offence. They could have killed those girls if not for the divine intervention. Linda, pls you have to use your good office to ensure this evil is duly punished and justice gotten for those girls. This story is really chilling.

Madam, thank you for making a difference in the lives of those girls.

I'm not surprised. The signs have been there. They even defend rapists. Not surprised at all.

The first practical mode of attacking this problem is for the government to open a functional guildiance and counselling office in each school. The lack of it is what is affecting these misguilded youths. Most of them don't have training at all. So the school should actively guilde them morally through that office

Labo said...

What they need to do is close down that school, if the parents and the school cannot control the boys then they do not deserve to have the school functioning. This is an outrage.I also blame the principal and parents of the other school Ireti Grammar school, they ought to have called the police and the Government into this matter to protect the girls. God bless this woman for her courage to stand up to the boys

Is this a scene from a movie or it actually happened in Lagos, Nigeria?
Am appalled.

Ola Olaoseegba said...

Sure this was pre-medicated. If not why are the boys with scissors. I hope this is followed up to a logical conclusion. Thank you madam for this wonderful act

Social media has finally exposed this evil that has gradually metamorphosed from throwing fire crackers at girls and grabbing and squeezing the teenage girls breasts to broad daylight rape. I should know, i attended one of the girls secondary school within the South West Ikoyi area more than 20 years back and it has always been like this, though not as bad as broad daylight rape. I recall after inter-house sports, the devils go on rampage and woe betide that girl who does not leave the inter-house sports venue on time. The same thing with final exams day and final day of the term, they congregate outside the schools and unleash mayhem. Thank God for this person who witnessed it and took it upon herself to expose same.

uche said...

The best deterrent to this evil is to have the identified boys arrested and vehemently prosecuted to the fullest.
Its only after that that counselling, mentoring and or any other preventive measures can have meaning. Everyone, especially the young generation, must be made aware that there are consequences for any criminal delinquencies.

Am not surprised pple support kemen that tried to molest a sleep gal on camera, ever since then more nigerian men have been bold to say rape is nutin or its gals fault, i dont pray to raise my daughter in this sick country , where d victim is d manipulator

African society lays emphasis on teaching the girl child to be modest but no one bothers to take out time to teach d male children manners. They would have gone ahead and blamed the girls for not dressing decently. But no, these girls were in decent nigeria school uniforms. So rape victims should not be blamed for dressing indecently or what have you, rather, let's focus on training our male children. We should spend thesame time we spend on telling our girls to dress right and seat right and talk right on our boys too. I'm outraged. We give boys so much privileges cos they are males and considered more important in the African settings, that's y it gets into their heads. God help me to teach my son the right morals.

Anonymous said...

I am very sad! The level of moral decadence and the curse these boys have decided to put on their soul. How can one begin life in a cursed way? They have destroyed their destiny even before they start life. How can you destroy another persons child and not expect yours to be destroyed later?

May God bless U Ma. Do u even blame d boys. Is the school authority not aware of these incidences yearly. If U interview residents in d area, they will tell U dat its not a new thing. Mobile Police officers should hav been deployed to d school an hour before closing time but who cares when d principals daughter is not even a student in d school. What a shame, the school authority should be punished too. See what happened to Chibok girls. Was the principals daughter kidnapped. We parents should take time to know what our teenagers are doing at all times. Engage them more in church activities than worldly activities.

You mean you people are shocked? With the same mouth and fingers you used in hailing and celebrating Kemem. A sexually perversed man that needs help for assaulting Tboss? What did you expect? Oh! You think the young ones are not watching and learning that sexual assault is a way to show masculine strength? Until Nigerian influencers and citizens call a spade a spade, and call evil by its name, we can't expect a civilized society. There is work to be done. And it won't happen by normalizing evil.

Our government out to be proactive in matters of this nature. Since this is a regular occurrence in most secondary schools on final days of exams and special occasions, the police ought to have been deployed to those hot spots. to at least scare the miscreants away. Am really worried, this boys should be made to face the law sqarely.How do we control what our little ones whatch and do,when at age seven they are aready exposed to Internet enabled smart phones,that all they need to do is type one word and they are in a porn site. So while you are thinking of how to take care of their school fees and general welbeing they are busy thinking of how to practice what they have learnt from porn sites.we really need to wake up.

Thank you, na so e dey start! These boys saw how kemen was hailed and tboss was shamed, what do you expect them to do?? It is the society we live in; we call black white just because of hatred forgetting that it could happen to your son or daughter. I can never forget an incidence that happened when i was in fgc warri, one night senior boys massively broke into the girls hostel and raped their fellow students, that set almost all the boys were expelled becaue of that. Let us condenmn this act because it is almost a culture here in our beloved country.
I remebered as a student in the university how many boys molested me, from my neigbours to class mates. Thank God these things are coming to light. I heard the boys have been arrested,Thank God for the power of social media

May God bless this madam and others who offered assistance to these girls.
We should always be willing to assist our neighbors whenever they seem to be in danger instead of using our phone set negatively to record wicked acts.The boys involved must be fished out and appropriate punishment meted to them.Our schools should be made to go back to what schools were in those days preaching and inculcating morals .parents please find time for your children and know them.It should not be all about money and career.Society at large ,we need to wake up to our responsibilities.

God bless you Madam for coming to these girls rescue,i'm seething with anger reading this,@ 53years of age, I thought I have seen it all,the Boys must face the music. Something is wrong with our psyche,mentoring and parenting.
