The Ondo State Police Command has arraigned a suspect, Toyin Akinsiku, who allegedly masterminded the abduction of two rape victims in Ondo town, Ondo State.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Femi Joseph, who confirmed the development to our correspondent on Thursday, said the suspect was arraigned on one count of kidnapping at the Ondo State Magistrate’s Court in Ondo town.

Toyin, who is the wife of one of the rape suspects already remanded in prison, was arrested by the police for allegedly organising the kidnap of the two teenagers.

The two girls were allegedly raped and tortured by five suspects – Bode Akinsiku, Olabanji Femi, Abiodun Ayodele, Fadairo Wahab, and Adedayo Adebayo.

A video of the act was allegedly uploaded on social media.

The victims alleged that Toyin, and one Mrs Imole, arranged their abduction from Ondo town to an unidentified woman in Lagos State, who used them for prostitution and menial jobs.

They, however, escaped and returned to their parents in Ondo.

The PPRO said the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Gbenga Adeyanju, was interested in the case, expressing the assurance that all the suspects would be brought to justice.

He said, “The suspect (Toyin) has been arraigned before a magistrate’s court in Ondo.

“She was charged with kidnapping; she has been granted bail in the sum of N10m with two sureties each in like sum. The case was adjourned till July 12, 2018.”

Joseph said the command was still on the trail of the second suspect, Mrs Imole, who had allegedly fled the town.
