A 23-year-old woman, Eniola Shittu, has been arrested by the police in Ogun State for allegedly conspiring with her lover, David Peremobowe, 31, to rape her friend.
Eniola, a resident of Ikopa Tuntun, Abiola Way, Abeokuta, was arrested on July 27 following a complaint by the victim at Obantoko Police Division, spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi said last night.
He said the incident occurred around 1:45pm on July 24, when Eniola messaged the victim on WhatsApp to help her buy food.
Eniola was said to have asked the victim to bring the food to her boyfriend’s house at Somorin, Obantoko in Abeokuta where she was offered a bottle of beer by the boyfriend.
“But immediately she finished taking the beer, she became very weak and David unlawfully had carnal knowledge of her. While he was doing it, the victim’s friend, Eniola, used her phone to record how she was being raped.
“On the strength of her complaint, the DPO of Obantoko Division, SP Olasunkanmi Popoola, sent his detectives to the boy’s house where David and his girlfriend, Eniola, were arrested. The Gionee phone with which the video coverage was made was also recovered.
“Police Commissioner Bashir Makama has ordered the transfer of the suspects to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for further investigation and prosecution,” Oyeyemi said.
