The suspects, Olamilekan Elijah and Adegoroye Afeez
Two suspected cultists Olamilekan Elijah, 23, and Adegoroye Afeez, 24 have been apprehended by Operatives of the Osun State Security Network Agency codenamed Amotekun for allegedly g*ng-r*ping a 17-year-old girl in Iwo town.
The Field Commander of Amotekun in the state, Comrade Amitolu Shittu, said his men responded to a distress call and rescued the victim from the suspects then arrested them.
Shitu said the victim was on her menstrual cycle when she was lured into the house of one of the suspects, Afeez.
“Olamilekan Elijah is from Ola-Ejigbo while Adegoroye Afeez is from Oba’s compound Bodeosi. The victim, an apprentice at Iwo living at Oke Bode Area of the community was lured to the house of one of the suspects, Adegoroye Afeez," Shittu stated.
"The 17-year-old girl was r*ped by the two suspects and filmed, the suspects threatened the victim that the video recorded will be released on social media if she should inform anybody of what transpired. Her phone was seized and taken to the Police at Iwo by the suspect (reason for this not known yet)
"Our investigations revealed to us that the two suspects are members of the Buccaneers confraternity otherwise known as the Alora."
One of the suspect, Afeez, who claimed to be a cocoa seller, confessed to the crime, adding that he r*ped the victim because she rejected his s3xual advances.
“I’m a cocoa seller from Iwo. I am married and have a child. I have known the victim since last year and we have since been in a relationship. I r*ped her because she would not give consent to my s3xual demand on that fateful day. That was our first time in such an act. My friend and I were in the house, but he didn’t participate in the act." he said,
He also denied not knowing that the victim was in her menstrual period.
On his part, Olamilekan denied r*ping the victim but admitted to filming the act.
"I am also a cocoa seller and married with a child. I did not partake in the act. She is the girlfriend of Brother Afeez. We both rented the room. When she came, I was outside to put the generator set on.
"I later came into the room and met them discussing. Soon, an argument ensued between the two as to s3xual advances. In this time I was only making a video of myself. The girl hit my phone on the ground during the struggle and I held her hands. This was the time Brother Afeez penetrated her. I did not partake in it, but I did record the act on my phone. I merely recorded her to teach her a lesson.”
The two, however, admitted to be members of Alora confraternities, saying they joined the group at Igbajo Polytechnic.
