NSCDC Nab 3 Suspects For Committing Different Offences In Ilorin

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Kwara Command, has arrested three suspects for committing different offences bordering on theft, criminal breach of trust and rape.

The Spokesman of the Command, Mr Ayeni Olasunkanmi, told newsmen on Friday in Ilorin that the suspects were arrested at different times.

Olasunkanmi said that one Arowolo Ayodeji, a 55-year-old man, was arrested following report of his sexual relationship with his 19 years old daughter.

He explained that the victim reported the case through the Social Welfare Unit of NSCDC, narrating how the father had been having relationship with her, since she was seven years.

The spokesman said that the suspect (Ayodeji) lived with his daughter at Ijero-Ekiti, Ekiti State, and had been sexually harassing the daughter for 12 years.

“The man visited his daughter in Ilorin and wanted to have his way as usual, but she refused and escaped from his evil plan,” he said.

Olasunkanmi further said that the second suspect, Qodri Ademola, from Gaa-Odota Ilorin, stole 21 phones that belonged to some students at the venue of JAMB examination centre, Aromaradu, Ita-Amodu Area, Ilorin.

He said that Ademola pretended to be selling nose mask at the venue of the examination centre and was entrusted with students phones during the examination on May 10.

The spokesman said that the suspect absconded with the students phones and had been on the run until he was arrested by NSCDC officers on Aug. 2.
He however said that the third suspect, Showole Emmanuel, 19 years old, broke into a house at Sango Area, Ilorin, and stole car spare parts from a parked vehicle.

Olasunkanmi said that Emmanuel pretended to be a scavenger that picks iron material at refuse dump, but specialised in stealing and house breaking.

He said that the three suspects confessed to have committed the offences and would be prosecuted immediately, to serve as a lesson to others like them.
