Police in Ogun have arrested a man, Osas Onyeokweni and his wife, Tomisin Onyeokwenu, for allegedly molesting and indecently assaulting a 20-year-old girl (name withheld) in Agbara area of the state.
State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, announced the arrest of the couple in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, on Monday.
The police spokesman said, “The couple were arrested following a complaint by the victim, who reported at Agbara Divisional headquarters, that her former boyfriend, Osas Onyeokweni, who is now married to her friend, Tomisin Onyeokwenu, called her on phone to meet him somewhere around Lusada area for an important discussion.
“She further stated that on getting to the agreed place, she met Osas and his wife and they both lured her into an uncompleted apartment, where Osas’ wife used scissors to tear her dress.
“After tearing her cloth, Osas held her down and his wife inserted an empty bottle of ‘Alomo’ bitters into her private part.
“They also snapped her naked picture and threatened to upload it on internet if she dared report to anyone.
“Upon the report, the DPO Agbara Division, SP Dahiru Saleh, dispatched his detectives to go after the couple and they were eventually arrested.
“On interrogation, the couple admitted committing the crime, but pleaded that they regretted their action.”
Oyeyemi also said that the state Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, had directed that the suspects be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
