A 23-year-old woman Eniola Shittu has been arrested by the police in Ogun for allegedly conspiring with her lover David Peremobowe, 31, to rape her friend.
Shittu, a resident of Ikopa Tuntun, Abiola Way, Abeokuta, was arrested on July 27 following a complaint filed by the victim at Obantoko Police Division, spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi said on Wednesday evening.
According to Oyeyemi, the incident occurred around 1:45 pm on July 24, when Shittu messaged the victim on WhatsApp to help her buy food and skushis.
Shittu was said to have asked the victim to bring them to her boyfriend’s house at Somorin, Obantoko in Abeokuta where she was offered a bottle of beer by the said boyfriend Peremobowe.
“But immediately she finished taking the beer, she became very weak as a result of which David Peremobowe unlawfully had carnal knowledge of her and while he was doing it, her friend Eniola Shittu used her phone to do the video recording of how she was being raped.
“On the strength of her complaint, the DPO Obantoko Division, SP Olasunkanmi Popoola detailed his detectives to the boy’s house where David Peremobowe and his girlfriend Eniola Shittu were promptly arrested. The Gionee handset with which the video coverage was made was also recovered.
“The Commissioner of Police Bashir Makama has ordered the transfer of the suspects to Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for further investigation and possible prosecution.”
