The relative reported to the police, who rescued the girl and arrested Ogunjobi.

Police source said: ”The man had told his neighbours that the girl was his relative and had come to live with him. Probably, he charmed the girl so that she would not resist the abduction. He had sex with her against her consent for four days. She was sent on an errand on the day he abducted her.”

On Tuesday, August 30, Ogunjobi was brought before an Ikeja magistrate court by a police prosecutor, sergeant Rafael Donny, on two counts bordering on abduction and rape.
