A security guard identified as, Longbab Bouguen, has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping a prophetess at the Agbogbo area of Akure, Ondo state.
Longbab Bouguen was arrested with an accomplice, Daniel John.
According to punchng.com, 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 then raped and collected money from her. He 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.
“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 a fellow security guard, Daniel John.”
Confessing to the crime, Bouguen attributed his action to the devil, adding that he could not explain what came over him. 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 N700 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.
