How hoodlums use mobile phone app, toy gun to gang rape ladies
Police Command in Ogun has arrested three members of a five-man gang which has been gang raping ladies in the Sagamu area of the state.
Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement, said the suspects were arrested after one of their victims made a complaint at Ogijo Police Division.
Narrating how the hoodlums gang raped the woman, the statement said, “The victim had reported that she met a man, simply identified as Enny Money, who gave her an application to download on her phone with an assurance that those she will meet through that application will help her financially.
“She further stated that as soon as she downloaded the application, one man, whom she later identified as the same Enny Money, started chatting with her and invited her to Idimogun area in Ogijo.
“She said that on getting there, she was lured into a house where she was subsequently gang raped by five men who called themselves members of the one million boys.
“The victim explained that the gang forced her to submission when one of them pointed a gun at her, adding that another one video recorded the action with his phone while they were taking turns to rape her.”
Oyeyemi stated that following the complaint, detectives from the Ogijo division of the command succeeded in arresting two of the suspects on Friday.
Their arrest led to the arrest of the third suspect on Sunday.
“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 the area,” the statement added.
The PPRO said that the police recovered a toy gun which the suspects usually use to force their victims to submission as well as a phone which they used to record the rape.
He added that the police was on the trail of two other members of the gang, who are currently at large.
Oyeyemi explained that the suspects will be prosecuted after further investigations.
