It was learnt that the suspects – Damilola Balogun and Joseph Agbo – allegedly molest the teenager overnight and later left her by the roadside.
It was gathered by Punch that the incident occurred last Friday on Akerele Street around 10pm. The girl Funke (real name withheld) was sent on an errand by her parents when the two men waylaid her with a motorcycle.
The suspects, who put on a military camouflage, ordered her to climb their motorcycle and rode away to a hideout around Murtala bus stop in Bariga area.
20-year-old Balogun and Agbo, 26, allegedly r*ped the teenage girl till daybreak.
The matter was reported at the Oworonshoki Police Division, after which police operatives trailed and arrested the duo.
A police source said, “The victim came to report the matter at the station. She was on an errand along Akerele Street in Oworonshoki when the men, who wore army camouflage, accosted her.
“Before she could cry for help, they had forcefully whisked her away on a motorcycle to Muritala bus stop where she was r*ped till daybreak. They threatened to kill her if she shouted. They later released her in the early hours of the second day.”
Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said four ATM cards and 17 identity cards were recovered from the suspects.
“They are also suspected to be hoodlums terrorising the area. The suspects will be transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad for further investigation and prosecution,” she said.
