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
intended coming to meet me, she would call and I will 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
some material things.
“I was able to perpetrate the crime when her sister sent her on errand
on 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.”
Narrating her ordeal, Ibukun(not real name) noted that the suspect
forcefully deflowered her, adding that, he turned her to a sex slave.

He said that he only accommodated them for a night, adding that he never knew 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 never believed he could commit such crime.

left my place the following day to somewhere else. I regretted allowing
them to pass the night in my place.”
