Ogun State Police Command has arrested three suspected members of a notorious criminal gang called One million Boys, for allegedly gang-raping a lady at Ogijo area of the state.
The commands spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, said the suspects — Sola Olaoluwa, Ibrahim Kehinde and Lukman Banjoko — were reported to have committed the act with two others said to be at large.
Oyeyemi said the three suspects were arrested following a complaint by the victim at the Ogijo Divisional Police Station.
He said the victim reported that she met one Enny Money, who asked her to download an application on her phone with assurance that the people she would meet on the app would help her financially.
“She further stated that as soon as she downloaded the app, one man whom she later knew to be the same Enny Money started chatting with her and invited her to Idimogun area of Ogijo.
“On getting there, 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 into submission when they pointed a gun at her and while they were taking turns to rape her, one of them was video recording the action with his phone.”
On how they were nabbed, the police spokesman said, “Upon the report, the DPO Ogijo division, CSP Muhammed Suleiman, dispatched detectives to go after the hoodlums and bring them to justice.
“Around 5am on July 24, 2020, the detectives succeeded in arresting the duo of Sola Olaoluwa, 35; and Ibrahim Kehinde, 19. Their arrest led detectives to the third suspect, Lukman Banjoko, 20.
“On interrogation, the suspects made confessional statements that they committed the crime. They further confessed that the victim was the second person they gang-raped in that area.”
Oyeyemi said a toy gun, which they used to threaten the victim and the phone used to record act, were recovered.
The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Ajogun said the suspects should be transferred to the State CIID for an in-depth investigation. He has equally directed that the remaining two members of the gang should be hunted for and brought to justice.
Meanwhile, KanyiDaily had reported how a suspect arrested by the police, confessed that he joined a robbery gang because he always see them counting and sharing money after operation.
