Two men arrested for alleged rape of hawker

Two men, Ezekiel Yusuf (29) and Musa Abubakar (25) have been arrested by Ogun State Police Command for alleged gang-rape of a pawpaw seller.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who made this known to on Monday said the suspects committed the crime along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

He said the 23 years old victim was hawking sliced pawpaw along the expressway, when the suspects under pretext of wanting to buy the product lured her into the house of one of them.

He said it was the cry of the victim during the act that attracted neighbours who reported the matter to the police.

Mr. Oyeyemi said the Divisional Police Officer of Ojodu Abiodun Police Station, Bamidele Job, quickly dispatched detectives to the scene and two suspects were promptly arrested.

The case is being further investigated by the police, he said.
