Operatives of the Ogun State Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps, So-Safe Corps, on Monday, 20 February 2023 around 2.45 pm apprehended two suspected abductors trying to elope with an underage female abductee through the Republic of Benin border.
A statement issued from the Office of the State Commander of the agency, Commander (Dr) Soji Ganzallo through the Director of Information and Public Relations of the agency, Assistant Commander Moruf Yusuf, said that the Special Patrol team of the agency on a routine patrol led by the Idiroko Divisional Officer, CSC Abdulkareem Abdulrazaq, in the border area queried the movement of the suspects, Moye Kazeem, 25 years old and Moye Kokuyi, 20 years old.
The commander stated that when the suspects were interrogated by the corps, both of them failed to provide a convincing answer.
Ganzallo said: “The female abductee Okechukwu Felicia, 16 years old, a resident of Ajuwon Akute in Ifo Local Government Area who was interrogated as well could not establish what was really going on and the true position of the suspects.
“During the preliminary investigation of the matter, it was gathered that the suspects had been declared wanted for the same offense they were arrested for at Akute Ajuwon Divisional Police Headquarters.
“The suspects were apprehended at Iyana-Ago trying to cross to the Republic of Benin.”
Ganzallo, however, noted that the suspects and the victim together with a Bajaj motorcycle were handed over to the Nigeria Police Ajuwon Divisional Headquarters through Inspectors Sunday Abah and Sami Loris who came to pick them up for further investigation and likely prosecution.
