Man Arrested for Attempted Murder of Graduate
Ogun State Police Command says it has arrested a twenty five old cobbler Olamide Babayemi for allegedly raping and making an attempt to kill a twenty-two year old Microbiology graduate.
The state’s Police Public Relations officer, PPRO, Mr. Abimbola Oyeyemi said in a statement in Abeokuta that the suspect was arrested following a report by the victim at the Redemption Camp Police Station.
Mr. Oyeyemi explained that the victim claimed to have given the suspect the sum of eighteen thousand naira to help her to buy phone but the cobbler refused to buy the phone for her.
He said the victim told Divisional Police Officer, DPO that the cobbler invited her to an estate in Mowe to collect the phone but the suspect raped her and recorded her naked video which he started sending to some of his friends.
Mr. Oyeyemi explained that the victim claimed that the phone call that the suspect received from his mother gave her the opportunity to escape from being killed.
The police’s spokesman said the suspect who was arrested by the Mowe Divisional Police Officer claimed to be the boyfriend of the victim.
Mr. Oyeyemi said the suspect blamed the victim for the incident for calling it quits with him after she graduated from the university.
He noted that the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Kenneth Ebrimson had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution
