A 25-year-old shoemaker, Olamide Babayemi, has been arrested.
According to reports, Olamide was arrested for allegedly raping and attempting to kill a 22-year-old Microbiology graduate.
The suspect was arrested after the victim reported the case at the Redeemed Camp police station.
She stated that she gave the suspect N18,000 to buy a handset for her.
The Ogun state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the victim also explained that the shoemaker refused to either buy the handset or refund the money.
He then called her on January 2 to come to Greenland Estate in Mowe and collect the phone.
“The victim said on getting there, the suspect forcefully removed all her clothes and raped her.
After forcefully having carnal knowledge of her, Babayemi soaked her clothes in water and used his phone to record her naked video, which he started sending to some of his friends.
When he realized that the victim might report him to the police, he made an attempt to kill her but she was lucky when her mother called him on phone to come and meet her at the gate of the Estate, which gave her the opportunity to escape.”
On interrogation, the suspect, claiming to be the victim’s boyfriend, confessed committing the crime, blaming the girl for ending their relationship after she graduated from school.
On why he recorded the lady’s nakedness, he said he did that so as to prevent her from reporting him to the police.
