Men of Ogun State Police Command have arrested two men, Ezekiel Yusuf, 29, and Musa Abubakar, 25, for raping a 23-year-old girl (names withheld), who hawks pawpaw.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement, said the victim was hawking sliced pawpaw fruit along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, when Yusuf Ezekiel lured her into his apartment on the pretence that they wanted to buy pawpaw from her.
According to the PPRO, “it was while she was shouting that the people around came to her rescue
and subsequently reported to the police.
The DPO of Ojodu Abiodun, SP Bamidele Job, quickly dispatched detectives to the scene and two suspects were promptly arrested.
“The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has directed that the case be transferred to Anti-human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, CIID, for further investigation and prosecution.”
