Operatives of Ogun State Police Command have apprehended two suspects for allegedly conspiring and gang raping a 16-year-old daughter of their co-tenant.
The randy suspects were arrested on 25th of February 2021 at Owode-Egba area of the state.

He said the victim told the police that she was at home with her younger siblings at Efunye village via Owode-Egba, when the two suspects, who are living in the same house with them broke into their apartment at about 2.00am and dragged her into Anthony’s room.
Oyeyemi added, “She stated further that the duo knew that her parents had travelled and they capitalised on that to forcefully break into their room, using cloth to cover her mouth after which they took her to Anthony’s room where they took turns to have carnal knowledge of her.”
