Confirming the arrest of the suspect yesterday, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Dolapo Badmos, said the robbers attacked and injured the victim’s father in the head for stopping them from raping his daughter.
The robbers were said to have inflicted dip cut on the father’s head and carted away some of his valuables. Badmos added that it was the neighbours who called the attention of the policemen from Igando Division and one of the suspects, Akeem Folorunsho, was later arrested.
She said: “The suspect was almost lynched by some angry residents of the area but was rescued and he was taken to the hospital for treatment.”
The PPRO, however, said the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, had directed the suspect to be taken to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) office at the command headquarters, Ikeja, for further investigation.
