According to reports, on February 26th, 2024, prior to the incident, the girl had boarded the taxi along with two friends.

During the journey, the taxi driver purportedly requested the girl’s mobile number, which she declined to provide.

However, one of her friends reportedly shared the number with the taxi driver without her consent.

Subsequently, on Friday, March 1st, 2024, the taxi driver allegedly contacted the girl, requesting to meet her at the bus rank.

Upon her arrival, she boarded the suspect’s taxi, believing it to be a routine journey home. However, instead of proceeding with other customers, the driver opted to drop them off and kept the girl in the vehicle.

Under false pretenses, the driver purportedly lured the girl to a secluded area near Kwaring, close to Molepolole Prison, claiming to show her a scenic location. Once there, he allegedly raped her.
