Confessing to the crime, the suspect disclosed that he wooed the girl when she was 14 years old at her sister’ shop in Agege.“We started having secret affair about a year ago. But her sister frowned on our relationship when she knew about it,” he claimed.
He continued:” Unknown to her, we were still seeing each other. In order to be having regular conversation with her, I bought a mobile phone for her and instructed her to hide it from her sister. So, whenever she wanted to see me, she would call and I would describe our meeting point for her”.
He added: “Then I thought if she could elope with me, that would be better for us. I started working on her psyche and deceiving her with material things”.
“I was able to perpetrate the crime when her sister sent her on errand one Sunday afternoon. However, I didn’t know she was with such amount of money. I just wanted to take her far away from her guardian for not supporting our relationship”, he stated.
Narrating her ordeal, the victim said the suspect forcefully had sex with her, adding that, he turned her to a sex slave.According to her,” he forced himself on me the very first day I visited him at his residence. Ever since, he has been having sex with me without wearing condom”.

She said that the suspect collected the N58, 000:00 her sister gave her. “He fed me thrice a day probably from that thrift contribution money”, she added.
The victim, who looked pale when he was rescued, said that, she eloped with him out of ignorance.Also arrested along with him, was one of his friends, Wasiu Agunbiade, who aided the abduction by accommodating the suspect and the teenager in his one-room apartment in Agege.
He said that he only accommodated them for a night, adding that he did not know he abducted the little girl.“If I had known the girl was abducted, I would have advised him to return her to her parents. I did not believe he could commit such crime. He begged me to accommodate them for one night in my room, stressing, “He left my place the following day to somewhere else. I regretted allowing them to pass the night in my place,” he added.
In her reaction, the sister of the abducted girl, said that the family would take her to the hospital for medical check-up.While confirming the incident, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Dolapo Badmus, a Superintendent of Police (SP) warned parents and guardians against exposing their wards and children to social vices around their environment.
