The Lagos State police command has put an end to the reign of a notorious cult member and serial rapist simply identified as Wasiu, which made residents of Isolo and Ilasamaja environs of the metropolis erupt with wild jubilation as the suspect had been terrorizing the area for a very long time.
A resident, who refused to be named told The Guardian that, “Four months ago, he raped a 14-year-old girl. He locked up the girl in his room from 9.00a.m. to 8.00p.m., while the girl was repeatedly beaten and raped before she was later released.”
It was gathered that Wasiu was arrested by operatives of Ilasa Division, led by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Oriyomi Oluwasanmi, a Superintendent of Police (SP), following a series of complaints from concerned residents.
“He is a known cult member, who is a terror to the community. You needed to see jubilation by members of the community waving goodbye to him and telling him never to come back. He has been a terror,” a member of residents’ association said.
The Lagos Police spokesman, Dolapo Badmos, who confirmed the arrest said, “he’s been arrested and detained for rape. He is currently undergoing interrogation with our gender desk unit. I can assure you he would be prosecuted in court.”
