Ex-Convict Nabbed Again For Robbery and Rape

An ex-convict, Adeniyi Ajayi, has been arrested for allegedly raping more than eight women during robbery operations in different parts of the state.

This was announced by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, at a press briefing at the command’s headquarters in Ikeja on Wednesday, July 1.

Odumosu disclosed that Ajayi broke into a company’s premises, robbed the workers of their possessions and harassed the female employees sexually in the process.

He said that Ajayi was arrested at Ijora Badia area of the state, adding that no fewer than eight victims accused the ex-convict of rape during separate robberies.

Odumosu said that “On June 16, 2020, around 1.55pm, some female and male members of staff of a particular company reported at the Sabo Police Station that one Adeniyi Ajayi, alias Ogologo, 27, forcefully gained entry into the company. The suspect claimed to be in company with other members of his gang outside the premises. He tied the hands and legs of the staff members and dispossessed them of four phones, two laptops and ATM cards.”

“He sexually harassed female workers. The suspect was arrested in a hotel at Ijora Badia by SARS operatives. The stolen phones were recovered from him. It was revealed that the suspect operated alone. He was recently released from prison custody. He equally confessed to a series of robberies and rape he single-handedly committed around Sabo and its environs.

“In the cause of investigation, more than eight female victims affirmed that the suspect robbed and raped them, even in the presence of their husbands and other family members. The suspect specialises in dispossessing victims of their phones, laptops and gold jewellery, and raping female victims. He will be charged.”

Speaking on the matter, Ajayi blamed unemployment for his crime.

He said “I prefer to be killed than go to prison. I have been imprisoned before, but when I came out, I had no job and that was why I went back to robbing people. I have only raped three victims, and it was when their husbands and bosses refused to cooperate with me that I raped their wives and maids in their presence.”
