The operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested three suspected rapists who gang-raped a lady in Ogijo area of the state.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects, Sola Olaoluwa, Ibrahim Kehinde and Lukman Banjoko, committed the offence on Thursday July 23.
He said five of them committed the offence but only three of them had been apprehended.
Oyeyemi said the suspects were arrested following a complaint lodged at Ogijo division of the command by the victim that she met one man simply known as “Enny Money” who gave her an App to download on her phone with an assurance that those she would meet through that App would help her financially.
He explained that the victim further stated that as soon as she downloaded the App, one man whom she later known to be the same “Enny Money” started chatting with her and invited her to Idimogun area of Ogijo.
But on getting there, he added, “she was lured into a house where she was subsequently gang -raped by five men who called themselves members of ‘one million boys.’
“The gang according to the victim forced her to submission when they pointed a gun to her and while they took turns to rape her.”
Oyeyemi said one of the suspects was video recording the action with his phone.
When he received the report, the Divisional Police Officer, Ogijo division, Muhammed Baba Suleiman, was said to have dispatched his detectives to go after the hoodlums.
Oyeyemi said two of the suspects, Sola Olaoluwa and Ibrahim Kehinde,
were arrested around 5am on Friday 24th of July 2020 by detectives.
Their arrest, he said led the detectives to the third suspect, Lukman Banjoko, who was arrested on Sunday 26th of July 2020.
He added, “On interrogation, the suspects made confessional statements that they actually committed the crime as alleged by the victim.
“They further confessed that the victim was the second person they gang raped in that area.”
