Three security guards have been arrested by the police for gang-raping a lady for four hours in the Alakia area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso, said the lady (name withheld), went to visit her friend at Alakia, Ibadan, and on getting to the community around 9 pm was accosted at a desolate spot by three-night security guards.
Osifeso disclosed this while parading the suspects and others before newsmen at the command headquarters in Eleyele on Monday
He said, “In a rather twisted turn of events, the young lady, having been dispossessed of her mobile phone, was whisked to another desolate spot, where she was held till about 01.25 am the next day.
“In furtherance of the above, the three guards took turns to have unlawful carnal knowledge of the young lady and as well forced her to transfer money into a bank account before she was abandoned to her fate at the scene.
“Upon interrogation, the suspects confessed to the crime. One dane gun, which they used for the criminal activity, and the Infinix mobile phone belonging to the victim, were recovered from the suspects.”
Also paraded was a 46-year-old man, Success Samuel, who was arrested over the alleged killing of a 65-year-old man, Moshood Orolade, in Ibadan, the state capital.
Orolade was murdered in cold blood on Tuesday, January 3, 2023, at his residence at Alakia in the Egbeda Local Government Area of the state.
Osifeso said the alleged killer and other suspects entered the residence of the victim with mortal and other weapons.
The police spokesman added added that during the raid, which lasted for several hours, the hoodlums killed their target and dispossessed members of his family of valuables, including cell phones and a huge amount of money.
He said, “On January 3, 2023, around 01.30am, a notorious robbery syndicate invaded a community in the Alakia area of Ibadan with guns, cutlasses and other weapons.
“Regrettably, the head of the family, whose name was later given as Moshood Orolade, was brutally murdered in cold blood by the armed robbers before fleeing from the scene of the crime. A distress call, according to the report, was put through to the police, which resulted in the arrest of the kingpin of the armed robbery syndicate.”
Also paraded were nine suspected members of the Alora and Aiye cult confraternities and other criminal suspects.
