Ogun State Police parade 42 suspects for cultism, murder, others
Ogun State police have paraded 42 suspects for various crimes committed in the state.
Suspects were arrested for murder, kidnapping, cultism, robbery, and other offenses.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the command’s spokesman, said the officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force in Ogun would not rest on their oars in bringing criminals to book on behalf of Lanre Bankole, the state Commissioner of Police.
Daniel Njokwu and his friend, Damilare Ogundiran, were among those paraded after being arrested for allegedly beating and gang raping a 15-year-old girl.
Abimbola explained during the parade how the two friends overpowered the underage girl and had carnal knowledge of her in a remote location.
“I am a dancer and my friend went to a show with me. But the police arrested us on our way back home. They accused us of raping a girl, which we never did.”
However, while being interviewed by reporters, the suspects denied the allegations.
They claimed they were stopped on their way home from a dance performance.
“We were arrested during a police raid on our way from a dance show,” Njokwu explained.
