A bus driver has been arrested by the Lagos State Police for raping a stranded 78-year-old woman, and leaving her with serious injury.
The rape victim had asked for directions to a place in Lagos from the bus driver, who instead lured her to a secluded place and raped her, resulting in serious bleeding. The state’s commissioner of police, Imohimi Edgal, who confirmed the arrest of the bus driver who raped the 78-year-old woman, disclosed that the woman was going to Ketu when the suspect picked her in his bus at the popular Maryland Area.
“Unknown to the woman, the commercial bus driver who had ulterior motive, drove her to Adeniyi Jones in Ikeja where he forcefully had sex with her in spite of her old age. A passer-by, who heard the woman’s shouts for help called the police and pointed them to the direction of the screams and he was caught in the act.
The woman was bleeding while she was rescued from the scene. The suspect is presently in custody and will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded,” Imohimi Edgal said.
