MEN of the Ondo state police command have arrested two suspected rapists, Longbab Bouguen and Daniel John, over the rape of a prophetess.
Speaking on the arrest of the two suspects, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Mr Femi Joseph, said the incident happened around Agbogbo area of Akure, Ondo state capital.
Joseph explained that the victim who was returning home around 8:30 pm was dragged into the bush in the area by the security guard where he had carnal knowledge of the prophetess.ALSO READ
According to him, the suspect forcefully removed and tore the victim pants and had sexual intercourse with her before collecting from the victim.
Joseph said: “One Prophetess of Celestial Church of Christ (name withheld) of Agbogbo area, Akure/Owl road, reported that one security guard, Longbab Bouguen, suddenly dragged to a secluded area and forcefully torn her pant to had sexual intercourse with her through the anus.
“The suspect threatened the victim by brandishing a cutlass and knife in his hand while putting-on a darken eyeglass and also dispossessed the victim of the sum of seven hundred naira (N700) which he consequently shared with his co-security guard, Daniel John.”
Confessing to the crime, 39-year-old Bouguen, attributed the crime to the handiwork of devil, saying he could not explain what came over him before raping the woman.
He said though he did not penetrate into the woman but ejaculated before releasing the woman to go after collecting the sum of N700.
He admitted that the other suspect did not participate in the rape but said “When he came to me begging for money for food, I gave him N200 out of the money collected from the woman because he was hungry. He knew nothing about the incident”
Joseph, however, said the state command would soon charge the two suspects to court after completing its investigation.
