Three men, Oluwaseun Damilohun, 20; Oriyomi Damilohun,19; and Oluwasegun Idowu,18; have been arrested in Ogun State for raping a 16-year-old girl and video recording it.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi disclosed this in a Thursday statement.
The police spokesman said the men laid ambush for the victim who went to have her bath at a stream in Abiodun village in Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
He said that they dragged her into a nearby bush and took turns raping her while one of them recorded it on a mobile phone.
The suspects were said to have threatened to upload the video to the internet should the victim expose them.
They were arrested on Wednesday, shortly after they allegedly committed the crime.
“One Alimi Olasunkanmi, an administrative officer of So-Safe Corps, reported that while the victim went to take her bath at Odo-pata stream, at Pata Abiodun village, in the Ifo LGA, around 10am, the three suspects ambushed and dragged her forcefully into a nearby bush, where they took turns to have sex with her.
“While the devilish act was going on, one of them was video recording it with a threat that if the victim dared to report them, they would upload it on the Internet,” Oyeyemi said.
He added that after getting the report, DPO Ifo, CSP Adeniyi Adekunle swung into action and led detectives to the scene where the men were arrested.
The police spokesman said that the suspects have confessed to the crime and the suspect was taken to hospital for proper medical attention.
Oyeyemi added that the State Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun has ordered the transfer of the case to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for diligent prosecution.
