Man identified as Godday Robinson, 28 has been apprehended by men of the Ogun state police command for allegedly raping, stealing and attempted murder of a 17 year old girl (name withheld) who hitherto refused his love advances.
A statement by the spokesperson of the state command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, states that the suspect was arrested after a report was received by the policemen attached to Agbara area command that a young lady was lying unconscious in a ten feet deep pit in a nearby bush.
Upon the report received from the good Samaritan, the area Commander Agbara detailed his men to the scene where the young lady was rescued with the help of members of the public and was quickly taken to an hospital.
After she regained consciousness, the victim told the police that on April 22nd while she was coming from night duty which she performed in the company where she works, the suspect who has been making advances to her before, accosted her, capitalized on the isolated nature of the area and dragged her into the bush where he forcefully raped her, dispossessed her of her Galaxy Samsung phone valued at #85,000 and then strangled her until she passed out momentarily.
Mr Godday Robinson, who initially thought that she was dead, dragged her further into the bush and dumped her into the pit. Thankfully, she regained consciousness and was able to call for help.
On the strength of her explanation, the area Commander ACP Bolanle Muritala gave a matching order to his detectives that the suspect must be traced and apprehended. The detectives swung to action immediately, traced the suspect and got him arrested on the 24th of April 2020.
When interrogated, Mr Godday Robinson admitted to committing the crime but he then blamed it on the devil.
