According to him, Swaray was occupying a moom belonging to a man who usually called the twins his wives and will usually buy biscuits for them.
Based on that, anytime the children see that particular room door opened, they enter, because they believe the man would be inside.
“The owner of the room usually called my children his wives because his woman is also a twin, so anytime they see the door open they can go in,” he said.
According to John, his daughters entered in the room along with two other children, one of whom is nine-year-old, to play.
He narrated that prior to Defendant Swaray entering the room with the kids, he bought a pack of sausage and some biscuits and took them to the room, and shared among the children.
“While the other children were busy eating the biscuits on the floor in his room, he took the bigger twin, took her clothes off and fingered her, the next one was the small one,” John lamented.
According to him, the family only got to know of the ongoing rape when the children aunty asked one of the boys in the room the whereabouts of the twin. He then informed her that they were in the room but the Swaray had taken off their clothes.
