Two notorious teenagers have been arrested by the Oyo State Police Command for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl and recording the act on their phones.

After perpetrating the evil act with the victim, the 2 friends were said to have sent the video of the sexual act to another friend, who demanded sex from the girl as bribery for the film not to be uploaded on social media.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Adewale Osifeso, said in a statement on Tuesday night revealed that the three friends were among 30 suspected criminals arrested by the command.

The statement read, “On October 24, 2022, at about 12pm, the victim, (name withheld) ‘f’ 17yrs visited her friend Joshua Adegoke ‘m’ age 18 years at his residence where she met one Peter Akintunde ‘m’, age 18 years.

“At Joshua’s place, she was given a bottle of soft drink after which she was invited to his room for sex, an offer which she declined. In a bid to salvage what she sensed was becoming trouble, she innocently asked Peter, Joshua’s friend to prevail on his friend but instead, Peter advised her to offer Joshua what he demanded.

“At this point, both friends took turns to forcefully and unlawfully have carnal knowledge of their victim while simultaneously recording the act. After this, Joshua deliberately transferred the video footage to another friend, Oluwanjoba Adetona, who also reached out to the victim demanding sex in exchange for not uploading the footage on social media.

“The suspects have voluntarily confessed to the crime and are helping with the investigation.”

Asides the three suspects, the PPRO also said 27 other suspects were arrested for various criminal activities including kidnapping, robbery and others.

A locally made pistol was said to have been recovered while the police also recovered ammunition.

The statement further read, “In the same vein, the command’s focus shall be beamed on correctional facilities, banks, media houses, schools, public infrastructures, major landmarks, business districts, places of worship and recreational facilities.

“Parents, guardians and leaders wielding degrees of influence are advised to prevail on their children, wards and protégés against being used as canon-fodders for the process as decisive actions would be taken on anyone caught disrupting the enviable level of relative tranquility enjoyed in the state.”
