The Abia State Police Command says it has arrested a man for allegedly raping a female passenger who boarded his bike late in the night.
Commissioner of Police, Adamu Ibrahim, who said this in a statement, added that the incident took place around 9pm at the Ntigha area of the state.
According to the police, the female passenger boarded the bike marked, AB 5023 TB, at Ntigha Junction and was heading for Umukalu Ntigha.
They said the motorcyclist, however, diverted her to a farm on the way where he allegedly raped her.
The police said the randy suspect also dispossessed the victim of N850 after raping her.
The suspect, according to police, will soon be charged to court as soon as investigations are over.
In a related development, the police said it had arrested one Nnenna Ohaja of Ogbodiukwu Umuokpara in the Umuahia North Local Government Area, for allegedly “keeping custody of two boys, aged five and seven, suspected to have been stolen.”
Ibrahim said the suspect had confessed during interrogation that one Obinna of Obingwa Local Government Area, and Onyemaechi Alo from Asaba , Delta State, gave her the children to sell at the cost of N250,000 each.
Consequently, Alo was trailed and picked up by police detectives and he admitted to the crime.
The police said that the stolen boys, identified as Destiny Clement, and Godspower Ikechukwu, both indigenes of Delta State, had been reunited with their parents .
