The Boys Who Tortured Some Women With Pepper Water In Ejigbo, Lagos Have Been Arrested

There is no hiding place for the wicked..! The heartless perpetrators of a bestial torture and sodomy of 2 girls and a woman in the Ejigbo area of Lagos which went viral after broke the sad story have all been arrested with the help of a traditional ruler, Oba Moruf Adisa Ojoola of Ejigbo, Lagos.

The arrest was possible as a result of immense pressure on Oba Moruf himself. He was said to have got all the men assembled at his palace around 11pm Saturday night, following a closure of the Ejigbo market.

The market was shut down, preventing the market men and women from carrying out their trading activities in the area until the perpetrators of the inhuman act were identified and brought to the palace...
The gang’s torture and sodomizing of one of the girls by thrusting of a bottle of ground pepper and sticks in her genital had resulted in her death, two months after. She was later identified as “Juliana” by her father, a palm wine tapper, who revealed that he also lost a toddler in the incidence as his wife, mother of the baby while being tortured by the gang was not allowed to attend to the baby.

His wife was however not shown in the video, as the gang allegedly kept her a separate room.
In addition to torture, the gang destroyed the palm wine tapper’s house and banished him and his family from the community, after he was made to pay N50,000 as fine to secure the release of his wife and daughters.

Last Thursday, Oba Moruf was invited by the Lagos Assembly Committee regarding the investigation into the crime. The previous day, Wednesday, the Iyaloja (Ejigbo Market women leader) visited the committee on invitation. She was accompanied by her husband, who pledged support toward the investigation.

The Babaloja, who allegedly received a fine from the palm wine tapper and also supervised his banishment, did not honor an invitation by the committee. He gave the excuse that he had injury on his leg. But sources in the market said the Babaloja may have had the injury when he scaled a fence to escape arrest by a police team that visited the market for investigation last week.

At a public hearing of the Lagos Assembly committee, the police, local government chairman, market women and other members of the Ejigbo community had denied knowledge of the crime, even as sources from the community insisted the crime happened in the public glare.

The arrested gang would be tried for the crime of murder and the illegal sum collected from Mr. Freeman, the palm wine tapper to secure the release of his wife and two daughters.
Those guys are really heartless, they just destroyed a whole family unjustly.... Really sad!
