Man charged with abducting 12-year-old girl for sex slave in Lagos

Haruna Jimoh, a 25-year-old male, has been charged with abducting a 12-year-old girl and converting her into a sex slave by the Lagos State Police Command.
The girl was allegedly taken while on an errand for her grandfather at 8 p.m., according to the police, who arraigned the suspect before the Ogba Chief Magistrate court.
According to the police, the accused hid the girl in a nearby bush at Erewa quarters in Lagos’ Ojo Local Government Area and defiled her repeatedly.
The prosecutor, Victor Eruada, told the presiding magistrate that the accused kept the victim in the bush overnight and that when her grandfather went to rescue her, the accused smashed his head with a wood.
“The girls’ grandfather raised the alarm that attracted some passerby to the scene of crime.
He was consequently arrested and handed over to the police in Ojo,” the prosecutor said.
The prosecutor further stated that the case was later transferred to the gender section of the command headquarters in Ikeja for further investigation.
The court did not take the plea of the accused following a motion moved by the prosecutor, Supol Victor Eruada, asking the court to refer the matter to the Department of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal advice since the girl involved is a minor.
The presiding magistrate, Mrs. M. O. Tanimola, ordered the accused to be remanded in correctional centre at Kirikiri town, Lagos and directed the prosecutor to send the file to the DPP before adjourning the matter to March 4, 2022.
