Man rapes mentally challenged women, dares their husbands

There was chaos at Iya Abiodun bus stop, Ifo, Ogun State, after a security guard, Abdullahi Muhammed, caught a 60-year-old trailer driver, Lawal Bankole, allegedly having sex with his wife, Tope, on their matrimonial bed.

Punch Metro gathered that the two men could have killed each other but for the intervention of residents who separated them.

The suspect was said to have fled the scene but was later arrested after Abdullahi reported the case at the Ifo Police Division.

Abdullahi, 45, an indigene of Kano State, told our correspondent that Bankole took advantage of his wife’s mental “condition to rape her.”

He said his wife’s mental problem started before he met her.

He said, “My wife has a mental problem, which started during her first marriage. She had a surgery that time, but there was a complication which led to the problem. Her ex-husband rejected her, saying he could not live with a mentally-ill person.

“Her family had taken her to different prayer houses for a solution to no avail before I came into the picture. I assisted them with money and they decided to hand her over to me in marriage.

“I made sure she stayed indoors always. All she does is to cook and wash my clothes. However, once in a month, she goes to visit her mother and returns. We have a child together, who is about two years old. Her condition is improving, but she is not totally sound yet.”

He explained that on Tuesday, he had returned from a trip to Lagos Island to meet Bankole on top of
his wife.

He said, “I had returned from my trip when I met him on top of my wife. I had a cutlass and a knife at home and I wanted to kill him. But I had a rethink and I decided to hold him.

“But he tore my clothes and bit me. He fought me and took hold of the cutlass; I held him. We were
fighting when people separated us and he escaped.

“However, I held on to his trousers, which contained his driving license, some cash, phones and ATM cards. I used the items as my evidence. I reported the matter to the police station after which he was arrested.”

The wife, 24-year-old Tope, an indigene of Osun State, told our correspondent that the suspect gave her N200.

She said, “I have never met the man before. That day, he entered our compound and asked if I wanted to eat and I said yes. He gave me N200 and went away.

“He later returned and asked me to undress and I did. He put me on the bed and had sex with me. I knew he wasn’t my husband, but I couldn’t shout or do anything. Then my husband entered and caught him.

“The two men started fighting. I ran downstairs to call people. Our neighbours separated them.”

A human rights lawyer, Isaac Durowoju, said the accused had been boasting that nothing would happen to him, adding that the Investigating Police Officer had not treated the case with the seriousness it deserved.

He said, “The woman’s husband has refused mediation because he was not sure if the suspect has HIV or not. He also said in his culture, if any man makes love to another person’s wife, that woman from that point ceases to be his wife. But he said he could not abandon his wife because of her mental condition. And finally, how is he sure that the suspect is not diabolical?”

The Police Public Relations Officer, Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident, adding that the suspect would be charged to court.

He said, “The police have arrested the man and he has confessed to the crime. He took advantage of the woman’s mental condition. He will be arraigned in court.”

Police reacts to report of its officers collecting bribe with POS

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) on Wednesday, June 21, reacted to a viral video of an officer caught on camera using Point of Sale (POS) machine to collect bribe.

Many Nigerians had expressed dismay at the attitude of the officer, which they said represented the level of corruption in the Nigeria Police Force.

We gathered that Abayomi Shogunle, the Assistant Commissioner Of Police, Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit in a statement released on its Facebook page said the force once used handheld machines to verify vehicle registration details.

Shogunle also asked anyone who at any time paid a bribe to a police officer using a POS to come forward with proof.

It was reported earlier that the incident reportedly took place on Tuesday, June 20, at Olowora Street, in Mafoluku area of Oshodi.

The Lagos state Police Command also dismissed the video footage making the rounds on social media about one of its officers using a Point-of-Sale machine popularly known as POS to extort a commercial motorcyclist.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, on Wednesday, June 21, said it was necessary to address the situation so as to clarify the account of how the incident in question was reported on various social media platforms.

He disclosed that the video, which drew the attention of well-meaning Nigerians, saw a police officer, attached to the Makinde Police Division, allegedly using a POS to extort a motorcyclist and his passenger on Olowora Street, Mafoluku in Oshodi area on June 20, 2017.

Famous-Cole in a statement said, “The Lagos state police command would like to inform the general public that none of its personnel is in use of a POS machine in any part of the state.”

“The command would also like to state that the officer in the video is being investigated and the commercial bike rider has given a factual account of the event that happened to justify the actions of the police officer.”

“The officer and his team on that fateful day accosted a commercial bike rider and passenger who had a bag on him. The passenger upon inquiry from the police officer about the contents of his bag brought out a POS machine and other documents.

“When asked why he was in possession of a POS, the passenger said his customers usually paid for their utility bills with the POS machine. The passenger was then asked to produce a form of identification which he did and was asked to go by the policeman that accosted him. Famous Cole Added

The PPRO, however, urged members of the public to verify information and its sources before use on social media to avoid misconceptions emanating from false information.

In a previous report,  two traffic wardens, Musa Muktar with force number 394120 GDI and Shuaibu Suleman with number 10627 were sacked for alleged extortion.

The announcement was made by ACP Abayomi Shogunle, the assistant commissioner of police in charge of the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU), in Abuja on June 20, 2017.

The statement showed that the sacked officers were attached to the Wuse Police Division in the Federal Capital Territory Command.
