15-yr old kidnapped, defiled by fake army officers

Two fake army officers, who abducted and raped a 15-year-old girl last Friday on Akerele Street in the Oworonshoki area of Lagos State, have been nabbed by men of the Lagos State Police Command.

According to reports, the suspects – Damilola Balogun, 20, and Joseph Agbo, 26, (who operated with a motorcycle) – allegedly abducted the teenager who was sent on an errand by her parents at 10pm on Friday and raped her overnight leaving the victim by the roadside the next day.

Reports say the parents of the victim took her to lodge a report at the Oworonshoki Police Division, and the police swung into action, leading to the arrest of the suspects.

“The victim came to report the matter at the station. She was on an errand along Akerele Street in Oworonshoki when the men, who wore army camouflage, accosted her.” A police source said.

Continuing, the source said; “Before she could cry for help, they had forcefully whisked her away on a motorcycle to Muritala bus stop where she was raped till daybreak. They threatened to kill her if she shouted. They later released her in the early hours of the second day.”

SP Dolapo Badmos, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, informed that four ATM cards and 17 identity cards were recovered from the suspects.

She stated that; “The police recovered items which included military camouflage, two berets, two mobile phones, four ATM cards from different banks, and 17 ID cards bearing different names. After interrogation, it was discovered that the suspects were impersonators.

“They are also suspected to be hoodlums terrorising the area. The suspects will be transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad for further investigation and prosecution.”
