RAPE: Police Nab Five Suspects In Ondo
Five persons are now in the Police net for allegedly raping two female teenagers in the Odoside area of Ondo town, Ondo State.
As reported by The Punch, the Ondo State Police Command spokesperson Femi Joseph confirmed the development
It is being alleged that the suspects tortured and raped the victims after which they allegedly recorded the scene in a video which they posted on the Internet.
The police identified the suspects as Bode Akinsiku, Olabanji Femi, Abiodun Ayodele, Fadairo Wahab and Adedayo Adebayo.
The suspects were alleged to have posted the videotape of the sexual assault on their Facebook pages; they were reportedly arrested following a complaint lodged at a police station by one of the relatives of one of the victims.
Recounting their ordeals, the two girls said they were four in number and were invited to the house of one of the suspects who pretended to be celebrating the birthday of his daughter.
The girls noted that two of them (also teenagers) escaped from the scene.
One of victims said, “They stripped us naked and seized all our clothes; they recorded the video after all of them had had sexual intercourse with us one after another. They equally threatened to take us to the street naked. We cried and begged them to allow us to go after they had raped us.
The PPRO said the suspects would face the full wrath of the law for the alleged offence, describing it as barbaric.
