The Delta State Police Command has arrested a 34-year-old commercial motorcyclist popularly known as okada rider, Abdulahi Musa, for allegedly raping a 24-year-old lady.

This was made known by the command’s Public Relations Officer,  Bright Edafe, on Wednesday.

Edafe said the victim had boarded the motorcycle on February 2, 2023 at night before the suspect diverted her into a bush where he raped her through her anus.

He said, “The suspect, Abdulahi Musa, aged 34 years on 28/2/2023 carried a 24 year old innocent girl who arrived Asaba from Benin that night on his bike. Instead of taking her to her destination,  he diverted her to the bush,  raped her through her anus.

“The operatives of SIB commenced an intelligence-led investigation that lasted for five months, and the suspect was eventually arrested on 20/5/2023.”

“We should be careful, especially at night, and in areas we don’t know much. The heart of man, they say, is desperately wicked,” the police spokesperson warned.
