Op­er­a­tives of the Ogun Po­lice Com­mand have ar­rested three young men for al­legedly gang-rap­ing a 16-year-old girl.

The sus­pects: Oluwaseun Damilo­hun (20), Oriy­omi Damilo­hun (19) and Oluwase­gun Idowu (18) were ar­rested fol­low­ing a re­port at the Ifo Po­lice Sta­tion by one Alimi Ola­sunkanmi of So-Safe Corps, a lo­cal se­cu­rity out­fit.

Our cor­re­spon­dent gath­ered that the com­plainant re­ported to the po­lice that the vic­tim went to take bath at the Odopata stream of Pata Abio­dun vil­lage in Ifo LGA at about 10:00am when the sus­pects am­bushed her.

It was fur­ther learnt that the sus­pects dragged her force­fully into a nearby bush and took turns to have sex with her.

Ac­cord­ing to the com­plainant, while the sus­pects were car­ry­ing out the act, one of them was video record­ing with a threat that if the vic­tim dared to re­port them, they would upload it on the in­ter­net.

The spokesman of the po­lice in the state, Abim­bola Oyeyemi, on Thurs­day, con­firmed the in­ci­dent.

Oyeyemi said fol­low­ing re­ceipt of the re­port, the Di­vi­sional Po­lice Of­fi­cer (DPO) of Ifo, Adeniyi Adekunle, led his de­tec­tives to the scene with some So-Safe Corps mem­bers where the sus­pects were ar­rested.

He ex­plained that, “They have all con­fessed to com­mit­ting the crime and the vic­tim has been taken to hospital.”

He added that the Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice in the state, Ed­ward Awolowo Ajo­gun, had di­rected the im­me­di­ate trans­fer of the sus­pects to the anti-hu­man traf­fick­ing and child labour unit of the State Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion and In­tel­li­gence Depart­ment for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

He also quoted the CP to have ap­pealed to par­ents to warn their chil­dren and wards to de­sist from any form of anti-so­cial be­hav­iour as the com­mand un­der his watch would not spare any­one caught in such vices.
