The Ogun Stae police command said it has arrested a suspected one chance driver, identified as Abiodun Makinde, who allegedly robs and rapes victims along Sango/Owode/Idiroko road.
The Police said the suspect was arrested on September 13, following a distress call made by two of his victims, Gloria Edoh and Saidat Akinola, who complained that they both boarded a cab from Owode to Sango in Ogun.
According to the victims, the sum of N37,000 and N480,000 was collected from them, as well as their phones, after which they were pushed out of the moving vehicle, Daily Post reports.
The Spokesperson of Ogun Police, Abimbola Oyeyemi said the victims “subsequently found their way to a nearby hospital for treatment. But while coming from the hospital, they sighted and identified Abiodun Makinde as one of the hoodlums who robbed them, hence they raised alarm.
“The alarm they raised attracted the DPO Atan Ota, SP Abiodun Salau, who was on routine patrol of the area with his men and they raced to the scene where the suspect was arrested with the help of members of the public.”
Oyeyemi said, “On getting to the station, one woman (name withheld), who had earlier complained of similar incident also identified the suspect as one of the hoodlums who robbed and raped her on the 12th of September and made away with her pants.”
The suspect, it was gathered, had confessed to participating in the two robbery incidents.
