How Man Overpowered Armed Robber Trying To Ra-pe His Wife In Ondo | READ DETAILS

A man has overpowered an armed robber who allegedly tried to r-ape his wife after robbing them in their residence at Idanre community, Idanre Local Government Area of Ondo state.

Parading the suspect, one Tosin Omoniyi alongside others arrested for various criminal charges, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami told journalists that Omoniyi at about 1am, broke into the residence of the couple, stole their money and other valuables. He however attempted to r-ape the woman after stealing from them.

“It was in the process of trying to r-ape the wife of the man that he (husband) summoned courage and descended on the accused, apprehended the robber with the help of neighbours, and dispossessed him of his gun” Odunlami said.

Sharing his own part of the story, the suspect who claimed to be a commercial motorcyclist, said;

“I entered through the window and met the couple in the house; I ordered them to bring out all the money and valuables in their house. They were able to bring out just N50,000, but I asked the woman to go and bring more valuables from her room because I was not satisfied with the cash.


“I followed the wife into her room to search the room and I asked her to lie on the bed and she obeyed because I was holding a gun. The woman shouted that I was about to rape her and her husband rushed in with four other men.


“I was overpowered before I could go for my gun because I had dropped the gun on the ground while I was trying to sleep with the woman. They beat me up, seized the gun and handed me over to the police.”

According to the PPRO, the suspect’s mother, Mrs Tale Akinlabi, 55, have also been arrested for aiding his son in his criminal activities.

The mother however denied saying;

“I know him as an Okada rider, but I was surprised to hear he was into armed robbery. He came to me that he wanted to buy a motorcycle and wanted me to follow him there, which I did and he had been using the Okada since then.


“I asked him the source of the money he used to buy the motorcycle, but he told me it was from his monthly contributions and I did not have any cause to doubt him since he was working as a commercial motorcycle rider.


“I was surprised when I learnt at the hospital about his arrest for armed robbery and attempt to rape. I was in the hospital because my husband had been sick for some time and I was with him.


“I was surprised when the police said I had been aiding him in his robbery operations. I had six children for his father, but he is the only surviving child of the marriage before I decided to leave his father.”

The suspect will be charged to court after investigations.
