According to a new disturbing report, a teenager who was gang-raped by 4 men after she moved to Lagos in search of greener pastures has tested positive for COVID-19.

16-year-old Aishat, an Oyo state indigene, became pregnant after she was gang-raped by four men when she took shelter in a bus at a motor park in Ijesha, Surulere.

Aishat was brought to Lagos by a guardian who took her from her parents in Saki, Oyo state – the guardian, a woman, promised to hand her over to the person she would be working with. However, the woman abandoned her at the motor park in Lagos, claiming she was coming back. She never did.

As she knew no one in Lagos, Aisha kept roaming in motor parks leading to her being gang-raped by 4 men she says she knows.

Pregnant and homeless, Aishat continued roaming in the park where she kept seeing her rapists. She passed her nights in shops until she was heavily pregnant and she was referred to welfare workers.

Aishat was directed to the Mother and Child Care Centre in Gbaja, through the Ministry of Women Affairs, where her case was first reported. There, she had her baby girl via caesarean section. Unfortunately, Aishat wasn’t producing breast milk after the birth of her child.

After the birth of her child, the plan was to take her to one of the government shelters in the state but the management of the centre insisted that a COVID-19 test be conducted on her first.

The COVID-19 test result came out positive and she was transferred to the Gbagada Isolation Centre instead.

Those who came in contact with Aishat were asked to undergo Coronavirus test. 8 of the hospital staff allegedly tested positive and have been asked to go to the isolation centre.
