A serial one chance robber and badoo rapist, Abiodun Makinde, 27, has been arrested by men of the Ogun State Police on Friday 13th September, 2019, over his involvement in one chance robbery and alleged rape.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the suspect is a member of the syndicate terrorising commuters along Sango/Owode Idiroko Road in Ogun State.
He said that the suspect, Abiodun, met his waterloo after being identified by a victim of robbery and rape.
Explaining further the PPRO said, “The suspect was arrested following a distress call made by two ladies one Gloria Edoh and Saidat Akinola.
According to him, they complained that they both boarded a cab from Owode to Sango, but on getting to Olokopupo area of Atan Ota, two men they met in the car suddenly brought out knives and other dangerous weapons with which they forced them to surrender their belongings.
The sum of N37,000 and N480000 were collected from each of them as well as their Tecno mobile phones after which they were pushed out of the moving vehicle consequent upon which they sustained various degrees of injuries.
They subsequently found their way to a nearby hospital for treatment but while coming from the hospital, they sighted and identified the suspect, Abiodun Makinde, as one of the hoodlums, who robbed them hence they raised alarm.
Their alarm attracted the DPO Atan Ota, SP Abiodun Salau, who was on routine patrol of the area with his men and they raced to the scene, where the suspect was arrested with the help of members of the public.
On getting to the Police Station, one woman (name withheld), who had earlier complained of similar incident also identified the suspect as one of the hoodlums who robbed and raped her on 12th September, 2019 and made away with her pant."
The suspect, Abiodun, has confessed participating in the two robbery incidents.
Meanwhile, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Bashir Makama, has ordered the transfer of the suspect to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) for discreet investigation.Source:
