The suspects were said to have been arrested following a complaint from one of their victims, Ijeoma, who reported them at the Ojodu Abiodun Police Division.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the victim was picked up in a taxi by three men on December 29, 2017, from African Shrine at Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos, and took her to Iwo Street, Ojodu Abiodun, Ogun State on an agreed fee.
“She added that she sighted the three men at the Adebayo area of Ojodu and was able to recognise them.”
Oyeyemi said Ijeoma reported the matter at the station and the Divisional Police Officer, Bamidele Job, detailed detectives to the area where two of the suspects were arrested while the third one escaped.
He said the suspects had confessed to the crime.
Oyeyemi, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, said further investigation revealed that the suspects had been involved in series of rape cases around that area.
He said, “Their mode of operation is to use uber taxi to pick their victims to an isolated area where such victims are gang-raped before dispossessing them of their belongings.”
