Okada rider, others rape passenger in Ogijo 

CITIZENS COMPASS– A commercial motorcyclist popularlly called Okada riders and his three accomplices have reportedly gang-raped a female passenger that boarded the bike from Ogijo in Sagamu Local Government, Ogun State.

The good thing is that two of them, Emmanuel Thompson and Joshua Godwin are currently cooling their heels with men of Ogun State Police Command.

The Command’s Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday.

Oyeyemi said the suspects were arrested on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, following a complaint lodged at Ogijo Divisional Police Headquarters by the victim.

He added that the victim reported that she boarded a commercial motorcycle at about 8 am on Tuesday, in Ogijo, but on the way, the driver who she said was carrying another male passenger with her suddenly diverted to another route.

He said, “the other male passenger started threatening to kill her if she didn’t cooperate with them.

“She complained further that they forcefully took her to a room in one house in the area, where two men were waiting for them.

On getting there, the two men they met in the room and the accompanied male passenger took turns to have sex with her forcefully.

“Upon the report, the DPO Ogijo Division, CSP Onatufe Umoh, detailed his detectives to the scene where two amongst the suspects were apprehended while their other accomplices escaped.

“The two arrested suspects have confessed to the commission of the crime.”

The PPRO, however, said the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the transfer of the suspects to the State Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and diligent prosecution.

He added that the commissioner also directed that the escaped members of the gang must be arrested and brought to book.
