Three officers of the Kick Against Indiscipline, KAI, have been arrested for raping a 24-year old woman after they demanded N10,000 bribe from her.
The suspected KAI officers, (identified as Benjamin Akinade, Olayinka Olowu and Adebayo Ayeni,) have been in the custody of the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit and will soon be charged to court.
The officers were arrested by the KAI authorities after the woman (name withheld) allegedly reported the rape case to officers at KAI’s headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos, southwest Nigeria.
The incident occurred recently when the woman crossed the expressway instead of using the pedestrian bridge at Ojota area of Lagos State.
The woman said that the officers arrested her for breaking the traffic law but later demanded for N10,000 bribe to set her free.She also claims that the officers threatened that if she did not bribe them, she would be sent to prison. she said she was advised to “use” what she has to bail herself out of being jailed.
The victim alleged the officers intimidated her and took her to an undisclosed hotel where she was raped.
One of KAI’s administrators, Mr. Onipede Offi, said the case has been handed over to the Lagos State Task Force, Alausa for proper interrogation and possible prosecution.Random photo of Kai officials :
