The Police Command in Ogun has arrested a 22-year-old tricycle operator, Rasaq Tahoeed, for allegedly robbing and raping a female passenger at Iyana-Coker in Ifo Council area of the state.

The command spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Wednesday in Ota, said the suspect was arrested following a distress call received by policemen at Ifo Divisional Headquarters at about 4.00 a.m on Monday, June 20.

“She stated further that the suspect took her to Olose Primary School, Ifo, where he raped her at gun point.”
