A security guard identified as Longbab Bouguen has been arrested by Men of the Ondo State Police Command for allegedly raping a prophetess at the Agbogbo area of Akure. The suspect, who was apprehended along with an alleged accomplice, Daniel John, was also said to had forcefully collected money from the victim after raping her.
Speaking on the arrest on Wednesday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Femi Joseph, explained that the victim was returning home around 8.30pm on the fateful day when she was attacked and dragged into the bush by Bouguen, who forcibly had carnal knowledge of her.
According to him, the suspect forcefully removed and tore the victim pants and had sexual intercourse with her before collecting money from the victim.
Joseph said, “One prophetess of the Celestial Church of Christ located in the Agbogbo area, along the Akure/Owo Expressway, reported that a security guard, Longbab Bouguen, suddenly dragged her to a secluded area and forcefully tore her pants in order to have sexual intercourse with her through the anus.
“The suspect threatened the victim by brandishing a cutlass and knife, while putting on dark eye glasses and also dispossessed her of the sum of N700, which he consequently shared with his co-worker, Daniel John.”
Confessing to the crime, 39-year-old Bouguen, attributed the crime to the handiwork of devil, saying he could not explain what came over him before raping the woman.
He said; “Though I attacked her and tore her clothes and pants, I had not penetrated her before I ejaculated on her body. I allowed the woman to go after collecting the sum of ₦700 on her,”
He, however, revealed that John was not involved in the act, explaining that he only gave him a part of the money he collected from the victim.
“When he (John) came to me begging for money for food, I gave him N200 out of the money I collected from the woman, because he was hungry. He knew nothing about the act,”
The PPRO, Mr Femi Joseph, said Bouguen would soon be charged to court after the completion of investigation.
