A 24-year-old woman has been raped in Lagos State, western Nigeria by three officers of the Kick Against Indiscipline, KAI, after she refused to pay a bribe of  N10,000, P.M NEWS reports.

According to the report, the alleged KAI officers, identified as Benjamin Akinade, Olayinka Olowu and Adebayo Ayeni, have been remanded in the custody of the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit and will soon be charged to court.

It was gathered that the officers were arrested by KAI authorities after the affected woman (name withheld) reported the rape case to officers at KAI’s headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos.

The incident was said to have happened after the woman crossed the expressway instead of using the pedestrian bridge at Ojota area of Lagos State.

According to the victim, the officers arrested her for breaking the traffic law but later demanded for N10,000 bribe to set her free.

She added that the officers threatened that if she did not bribe them, she would be sent to prison.

The victim claimed when she could not pay the money, she was advised to “use” what she has to bail herself out of being jailed.

She added that the officers intimidated her and took her to an undisclosed hotel where she was raped.

Confirming the incident, one of KAI’s administrators, Onipede Offi, informed that the case has been handed over to the Lagos State Task Force, Alausa for proper investigation and possible prosecution.

Offi said the management of  KAI has resolved to bring sanity into the system and would not relent in achieving this goal.

“We will make sure that the officers are punished if they are found guilty of the offence. This will serve as deterrent to others who also collect bribe or harass commuters,” he said.

Taskforce Chairman, Bayo Sulaiman, a Chief Superintendent of Police, stated that the officers will be charged to court to face prosecution.

“No government would condone criminal acts. They are just like common criminals if found guilty. So the law will take its course on them.

“They threatened to jail or have carnal knowledge of someone they arrested.

“They reportedly raped the lady and there are others who also are in the habit of committing this crime but we don’t have information about them now. We will charge these officers to court,” he said.

Sulaiman disclosed that the KAI officers were posted to Iyana Ipaja, but went to Ojota to extort money from unsuspecting commuters.

He warned other officers who engage in this criminal act to change their ways or face the consequences.

KAI Brigade is the Law Enforcement Unit of the Lagos State Ministry of the Environment.

It was established on 3rd November 2003 by the then Governor of the State Asiwaju Bola Hameed Tinubu. The Brigade was established to enforce the Environmental Sanitation Law of Lagos State.

US special forces rescue American held hostage in Nigeria

U.S. special forces rescued an American citizen who had been kidnapped by armed men in an operation on Saturday in northern Nigeria that is believed to have killed several of his captors, U.S. officials said.

U.S. special forces

Forces including Navy SEALs rescued 27-year-old Philip Walton, who had been abducted on Tuesday from his home in neighboring southern Niger, two U.S. officials said on condition of anonymity, adding that no U.S. troops were hurt.

A diplomat source in Niger said Walton is now at the U.S. ambassador’s residence in Niamey.

“Big win for our very elite U.S. Special Forces today,” U.S. President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Fox News that the Trump administration had over the years rescued 55 hostages in 24 countries.

The Pentagon confirmed the operation but did not provide the identity of the hostage.

Walton, who kept camels, sheep, and poultry and grew mangoes near the border with Nigeria, was kidnapped by six men armed with AK-47 assault rifles who arrived on motorcycles at his home in southern Niger’s Massalata village early on Tuesday.

His wife, young daughter, and brother were left behind.

Reuters has reported that the perpetrators appeared to be from the Fulani ethnic group and that they spoke Hausa and some English. They demanded money and searched the family’s home before leaving with Walton.

Niger, like much of West Africa’s Sahel region, faces a deepening security crisis as groups with links to al Qaeda and Islamic State carry out attacks on the army and civilians, despite help from French and U.S. forces.

Four U.S. soldiers were killed in an ambush in Niger in 2017, sparking debate about the United States’ role in the sparsely populated West African desert that is home to some of the world’s poorest countries.

At least six foreign hostages are being held by Islamist insurgents in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger. Islamists have collected millions of dollars in ransom payments in recent years. The U.S. government has frequently criticized other countries for paying.
