A 78-Year-Old Woman was rescued from a 41-years-old rapist by a passer-by, who heard the woman’s shouts for help along Adeniyi Jones in Ikeja.
This was contained in the report of Lagos State Commissioner of Police Chief Imohimi Edgal while briefing reporters on his command’s activities in the last one month.
Edgal said the driver, 41, r*ped the septuagenarian, who asked him for direction to where she was going in Ketu.
“Unknown to the woman, the driver, who had an ulterior motive, drove her to Adeniyi Jones in Ikeja where he forcefully had s*x with her despite her old age.
“A passer-by, who heard the woman’s shouts for help, called the police and pointed them to the direction of the screams and he was caught in the act. The woman was bleeding when she was rescued from the scene,” he said.
In the report, the commissioner further said twenty-three suspected cultists have been arrested in different parts of Lagos; a 37-year-old man was nabbed for attempting to kidnap a 4-year–old boy at Okokomaiko; thirty live cartridges were recovered from suspects and 2 persons were arrested for alleged possession of firearms and membership of an unlawful society during the period.
He said: “Based on the information, operatives of the command and those of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) based at Igando mobilized to the scene and arrested the suspects.
“Exhibits recovered from them include one locally-made cut-to-size gun, three live cartridges, a T-Shirt with an inscription Vikings Nons Men and a cutlass.”
