The police in Lagos have arrested a tricycle rider, Dada Azeez, for allegedly abducting a 15-year-old girl, Jumoke (other names withheld), and turning her into a s*x slave in Agege area of the state.
The suspect abducted the victim on October 5, while she was running an errand for her sister. He was said to have taken her to a single-room apartment where he s*xually assaulted her till October 21, when operatives of the Rapid Response Squad rescued the girl.
Her sister, one Mrs. Gbemisola, reported the case to the RRS, informing the police that the victim was abducted with a sum of N58,000 meant for her thrift contribution.
The suspect, after lodging in several locations to evade arrest, was reportedly nabbed on Oseni Street, in Danjuma Cinema area, Agege, with Jumoke in the apartment.
28yrs old Azeez confessed to the crime, saying he had been dating her since she was 14 years old.
He said, “We started having an affair about a year ago. But her sister frowned at the relationship. I was able to perpetrate the crime when her sister sent her on an errand on that Sunday. However, I didn’t know she was with any money. I just wanted to take her far away from her sister for not supporting our relationship.”
On his part, the teenage girl said the suspect deflowered and turned her to a s*x slave. She said, “He forced himself on me the very first day I visited him at his residence. Since then, he had been r*ping me without using a condom.
“He r*ped me everywhere and even at his friends’ place where he hid me for weeks. I succumbed to him because I couldn’t go back home.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, urging parents and guardians to monitor their children and the company they keep.
