The Ogun State Police Command has arrested two herdsmen, for allegedly stealing the sum of N140,000 from a farmer in Ewekoro Local Government Area, and gang-raping his 16-year-old daughter.
The suspects, Abu Adamu and Muhammadu Aliyu, were arrested on September 9, 2020, by policemen from the Ewekoro Divisional Headquarters.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the command’s spokesperson, disclosed this on Sunday.
Oyeyemi explained that preliminary investigation revealed that the herdsmen had always been passing through the farm settlement with their cattle in the daytime, before they came back to carry out the attack on the day of the incident.
The command’s spokesperson added that the state commissioner of police, Edward Ajogun, has ordered a manhunt for the fleeing member of the gang.
He also directed the immediate transfer of the case to the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation and prosecution.
