Two in police net over alleged rape of 21-year-old lady



Two suspects have been arrested by the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly raping a 21-year-old lady.

According to the police, they perpetrated the assault inside a Nissan Almera 2017 model in Alausa Business District, Ikeja.

Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed the arrest in a statement on Thursday.

Solomon Barry, 37, and Bright Omega, 36, were caught in the act around 3:45 a.m. on Saturday, September 10.

RRS officers on patrol stopped to check a parked black Nissan Almera at M.K.O. Abiola Gardens Road when they noticed the car.

The operatives observed that the victim was unconscious and not responding to instructions. The officers rounded up the suspects and drove the lady to RRS Headquarters for medical attention where she regained consciousness.

The police source said a preliminary investigation showed that the lady met the suspects at a club around Ikeja Shopping Mall and then consented to lodge in a hotel before they stopped midway.

It was gathered that CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, the Commander RRS, acting on the instruction of Commissioner of Police Abiodun Alabi, has transferred the case to the Police Gender Unit.
