Isolo residents jubilate as police arrest alleged rapist, cult member



There was wild jubilation in Isolo and Ilasamaja environs at the weekend as the Lagos State police command put an end to the reign of a notorious cult member and serial rapist in the area.

The Guardian learnt that the suspect, simply identified as Wasiu, had terrorized the area for a very long time.

“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,” a resident, who refused to be named, said.

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.

Confirming the incident, Lagos Police spokesman, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police, 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.”
