The sleepy community of Angwan Seriki Orozo in the Federal Capital Territory [FCT], Abuja was struck by the early morning news of rape and beating by a notorious cultist leader, Patrick Odeh of a waitress at a local garden/bar.
According to the information made available by sources within the police officers who arrested the cultist on the early morning hours of January 13, 2022, Patrick Odeh who is a resident of Orozo community crashed into a local bar/garden located at Angwan Seriki Orozo by the name 247 Garden. He gained illegal access into the bar at about 1am armed with a gun. While inside the facility, he pounced on one of the waitresses – who were sleeping over inside one of the rooms at the facility.
At gunpoint, Patrick surrendered one of the workers – aged 21years old who had just started working at the facility a week ago. She hails from Ogbomosho LGA in Oyo State. He then began to beat and rape her repeatedly till 4am. Patrick threatened the girl to not report to the authorities or to anyone. He told her he will kill her if she does talk to anyone about what he did to her. From the bar, Patrick walked over to his house located next door.
But the girl, in tears, mustered courage to inform her brother of what transpired. The brother was quick to alert the police at Karshi divisional police office located about a few kilometers away.
