The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command has arrested two men for allegedly raping a female dancer in a car.
The squad arrested the suspects in the early hours, last Saturday.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the suspects allegedly raped the 21-year-old dancer inside a Nissan Almera 2017 model, in the Alausa Business District area, Ikeja.
“The suspects, Solomon Barry, 37, and Bright Omega, 36, were caught in the act around 3:45am, on Saturday, September 10, 2022. The RRS officers, who were on patrol of Alausa Business District stopped to check a parked black Nissan Almera at M.K.O Abiola Gardens Road, Alausa, when they noticed the alleged rape ongoing.
“On a closer look, the officers observed that the lady was unconscious and not responding to police instructions. The officers promptly rounded up the suspects, and urgently drove the lady to RRS Headquarters for medical attention where she regained consciousness.
“Investigation revealed that the lady met the suspects at a club around Ikeja Shopping Mall, Alausa, and then consented to driving around town and lodging in a hotel.
“Meanwhile, Commander RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, acting on the instruction of the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Abiodun Alabi, has transferred the case to the Police Gender Unit, which is specialised in handling such cases.”
