The 32-year-old Ozo, according to Total Media, was arrested alongside three other members of his gang, Innocent Lucky, 27, Roland Ode, 22, and Friday Dominion, 26, after they had abducted the middle-aged woman and raped her continuously even after collecting ransom from her family.
The State Police Command, in a release, described the gang as one of the most infamous in the state and has been engaging in the crime for many years before they were captured.
In his confession, Ozo said they repeatedly raped their victim even after collecting N2 million ransom from her relations.
"We slept with her several times before we released her. We also collected N2 million ransom. We did not use any condom when we had sex with her.”
Narrating how they were arrested, Lucky said the four of them were driving in their car along Sapele Road when policemen on patrol stopped and arrested them.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Haliru Gwandu, led the parade of the suspects alongside other criminals arrested for various crimes in the state ranging from armed robbery, murder, cultism, stealing and impersonation.
