A 27-year old rape suspect, Adeniyi Ajayi, aka Ogologo, Wednesday, begged the police to kill him rather than charge him to court for allegedly raping eight women including someone’s wife in Lagos.
The suspect, whom the police says is an ex-convict, is said to be notorious for robbing and gangsterism.
Operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad(SARS), Lagos State Command arrested him and paraded him alongside 70 others at the Command Headquarters, Ikeja.
Ajayi decried, “I don’t want to go back to the correctional centre because i will come back worse.”
The suspect, who operates as a one-man squad, said his previous experience at the correctional centre made him graduate from pickpocket to armed robbery.
His words: “I go to rob at night. I go alone. I operate with a torch and a knife which I use to scare my victims. It is only when a victim tries to prove stubborn that I rape them, to teach them a lesson.
He confessed that he had only raped two ladies including someone’s wife and a house girl.
“I just want the police to waste me because I don’t have anything good to give to the society. I don’t want them to send me back to the correctional centre. It was my stay at the correctional centre that made me become worse.
“I only stole a phone when I was sent to correctional centre, but when I got there, the inmates told me to go into big time robbery when I regain freedom.
“If I had gotten someone to help me when I regained freedom 10 months ago, I wouldn’t have followed their advise. But I didn’t have anyone to help me, so I went into armed robbery. I go to houses to rob.
“I fear that if I go back to correctional centre, the inmates will still poison me the more. It is obvious I cannot be of any good to the society. I will continue to cause trouble for the police, so they should just kill me.”
The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, told the media that the suspect confessed to have raped eight women.
Speaking on how the suspect was arrested, Odumosu said he had robbed some female and male staff of a company on June 16, 2020.
He said a phone the suspect stole was tracked by operatives, and he was arrested in a hotel at Ijora Badia area of the state.
The state police boss said: “ Some female staff and a male staff of a particular company reported at Sabo Police Station that while on duty at the Company, Ajayi forcefully gained entrance into the Company building. The suspect claimed to be in company of other members of his gang outside the premises.
“ He tied the hands and legs of the staff and robbed them of their four phones, two laptops and ATM card. He sexually harassed the female staff. 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 operates alone. He was recently released from prison custody. He equally confessed to series of robbery and rape he single handedly committed around Sabo and its environs.
“In the cause of investigation, more than eight female survivors affirmed that the suspect, in the recent time robbed and raped them, even in the presence of their husbands and other family members.”
The CP has assured the public that the suspect would be charged to Court soon.Follow us on social media
