Drunkenness is no excuse to pounce on herWritten by Ozioruva Aliu

THREE suspects are already in police custody in Benin City for allegedly robbing a shopkeeper on the road to Evbuosa near Obozogbe in the local government of Orhionmwon in the state of Edo, after which she was raped and strangled to death.

It was gathered that the suspects confiscated N30,000 N from her, before dragging her to a nearby bush, where they turned to rape her, and later left her with life-threatening injuries.

At the time of the press, the woman’s remains were dumped in the morgue, but no one came out to identify her.

A group of vigilant people from the area said some people who were on the farm heard the woman screaming but could not find her when they went out to the scene as the suspects dragged her further into the bushes.

It was collected from the members of the vigilance service that a shirt was found in that area, which was used to look for the owner in the village.

A source in the village said he later owned the shirt, Destiny Osa, which the locals then arrested and handed over to men from the Ugo Police Department.

“Osas has been handed over to people from the Anti-Abduction and Cyber ​​Crime Department of the Edo State Police Command for further investigation.”

It was said that the mentioned Destiny of Osa later told the police how they attacked, robbed, raped and killed a woman in the bushes at around 7 o’clock and took the police to arrest two more members of the gang, Etim Zion and Samuel Jeremiah.

The first suspect, Osa, later led the police and another investigation team to the place where the woman was raped.

Edo State Police Public Relations Officer Chidi Nwabuzor was contacted, who confirmed that the incident said no one had come for the dealer’s body.

He advised anyone whose family member left home on Saturday, December 19, 2020 in Evbuos and did not return home, to contact the Edo Department’s Anti-Kidnapping / Cybercrime Office in Benin, assuring that the three suspects would be indicted in court for prosecution.
