The police prosecutor, Abiodun Fagboyinbo, said Osein confessed to feeling bad after he had committed the crime alongside one Gbenga Ayelangbe, a commercial motorcyclist, on June 16, 2019, around 10pm in Osogbo. Osein and Ayelangbe, having thoroughly beaten the victim, took her on a motorcycle to the latter’s residence in the Kolawole area of Osogbo, where they allegedly raped her, stole her mobile phone and bag containing the sum of N34,500.
