ABEOKUTA - A 25year old cobbler, Olamide Babayemi has been arrested by men of Ogun state Police Command for raping and attempt to kill a 22year old microbiology graduate (name withheld).

The suspect was arrested following a report by the victim who came to the Redeem camp police station and reported that she gave the sum of 18000 to the cobbler who she has known for quite some time to buy a handset for her. 

She explained further that the cobbler who has refused to either buy the handset or refund her money suddenly called her on the 2nd of January to come to Greenland Estate in Mowe and collect the phone. 

The victim said on getting there, the suspect forcefully removed all her clothes and raped her. 

The victim stated further that after forcefully had her carnal knowledge, the suspect soaked her clothes in water and used his phone to record her naked video which he started sending to some of his friends. 

When he realized that the victim might report him to the police, he made an attempt to sniff life out of her but she was lucky when the suspect's mother called him on phone to come and meet her at the gate of the Estate which gave her the opportunity to escape.

On the strength of the report, the  DPO Redeem camp CSP Chris Amanyi mobilized his detectives to go after the suspect who has taken to his heels immediately and he was apprehended on 4th of January 2020 when his mother brought him to the station.

On interrogation, the suspect who claimed to be the victim boy friend confessed committing the crime, but blamed the girl for calling it quit with her after she graduated from the university.

When asked for his reasons behind recording the nude video of the girl, he said he did so as to prevent her from reporting him to the police.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Polic, CP Kenneth Ebrimson has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
