A man identified as Ayo Salau, has been arrested by the Lagos police command for colluding with another suspect on the run, Richard Samuel Gbenga, to lure a lady via Facebook and rape her.
Sometime in July, 2018, the lady became friends with Gbenga on Facebook. They interacted a couple of times, getting to know each other. And on August 4, 2018, the suspect invited her for a dinner and she accepted.
She further told him where they would meet before taking off for the dinner. The suspect arrived at the agreed take off point in a Toyota Camry driven by Salau.
On their way to Lekki, they pulled over at a lonely spot, armed with cutlasses, they ordered her to take off her clothes or be killed. Thereafter, they took turns to rape her, after which they robbed her of her wristwatch and cash.
The moment the hoodlums left, the victim raised alarm and gave description of their car. Police operatives attached to Maroko Division were alerted and immediately they laid ambush for the fleeing criminals.
As soon as the police operatives stopped their vehicle, the criminals took to their heels. The officers chased them and arrested Salau while Gbenga escaped.
The suspect has since been identified by the victim and he confessed to have committed the crime. He added that his fleeing partner recruited him for the job.
