Gunmen attack Ogun community, kidnap and rape residents

22 July 2016, 09:45

Abuja - Two landlords have been kidnapped following an attack by unknown gunmen on the Ibafo community of Ogun State.

According to a Punch report, suspected militants invaded the Gideon village as well as the Oke Cele and Asiwaju communities of Ibafo, causing havoc and raping women as they made their way through the area.

Militants have since demanded N50 million for the release of one of the landlords, who reigns from Gideon village.

In Oke Cele, the gunmen raided three homes, carting away goods and raping women in font of helpless husbands.

One of the residents of the community, who spoke on condition of anonymity, claimed that the suspected militants had previously written letters before they planned to stage attacks in the area.

“Before any attack, these militants would write letters and ask residents to prepare for them. When they get to their target community, they move in groups of 30s and 50s. They would go from one house to another, raping young ladies and beating up young men,” he said.

The gunmen are alleged to have entered the Asiwaju community last Thursday, raping a nursing mother while forcing her husband to fan them as they conducted their dastardly crime.

A police source has since revealed that militants in the area may be on the rampage due to a Government clampdown on the pipeline vandalism trade, Olisa.tv reports.

SP Muyiwa Adejobi, PR Officer for the Ogun State Police, has since confirmed the attack, claiming that one of the landlords has been released since his abduction took place.
