The Patriot Institute of Journalism and Arts (PIJA), Lance Magazine is a public-centric independent media organisation dedicated to fighting injustice, fostering social justice and community development through the telling and retelling of the marginalised-oriented stories.
An audio recording which unmasked a university athletics champion and a medical student as a rapist has been made public by his victim after she waived her right to anonymity.
Daniel McFarlane, 24, won a host of medals while studying to become a doctor at the University of Glasgow and was widely believed to have a bright future ahead of him.
In private, however, the medical student raped Ellie Wilson, a fellow student athlete, telling her no one would believe her if she reported his crimes.
Through the audio the rapist and medical student, McFarlane was finally found guilty of two rape charges, as well as attempting to defeat the ends of justice, and sentenced to five years in prison in July last year after Wilson used her iPhone to covertly record him as he confessed to his crimes.

Kate Henshaw Demands Justice for 15-year-old raped
Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw, has demanded justice for a 15-year-old minor, who was allegedly defiled by a Lagos-based doctor, Olufemi Olaleye, who is also her aunt’s husband.
Henshaw, who attended proceedings on the matter at the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos State, on Wednesday, spoke to newsmen after the case was adjourned till January 26.
She said, “I’m here because I had professional relationship with Femi Frank Olaleye; I refuse to call him doctor. I once helped him create awareness for women with breast cancer and cervical cancer to get early treatment and early diagnosis for their medical condition. That’s why I’m here.
Asked what she expected of the case, she said, “I cannot say, I’m not a judge. I just want justice to be served. That’s it.”
