“I felt his (Segun) dreadlocks on my body since he had dreadlocks. I attempted to drive him off as he was contacting me. He was touching my bosoms, and I could feel another pair of hands on my thighs.

“I passed out and came up again a second time, and I could feel someone fingering me. I realized I heard Chima’s voice, and I couldn’t review what he was stating, and I felt myself being entered once more. I attempted my best to say no.

“I asked, ‘Chima what happened the previous evening?’ He stated, ‘Nothing.’ At this point, Segun Razak was absent in the room. I asked the second time, and he didn’t utter a word’. I asked him straight, ‘Did we engage in sexual relations the previous evening?’

“He stated, ‘No’ and I let him know: ‘On the off chance that we didn’t, for what reason is my clothing (gasp) not on?’ He didn’t utter a word. I began searching for my clothing.

“I felt this is my companion, and he would not do that to me. I at last found my clothing under the duvet, I snatched it, got my wig and vehicle keys and went the first floor,” she said.

The observer said that she left the inn in tears, stun and perplexity, and did not have any desire to return home in her damaged state.
