Operatives of the Lagos Police Command have arrested a 26-year-old man Benjamin Omade for alleged abduction and defilement of a teenage girl.


The victim (names withheld) was said to be the daughter of his next door neighbour at Bariga.

It was gathered that Omade allegedly eloped with the underage girl since May 17 with no one knowing their whereabouts.

He was said to have taken her to 61, Odunsi Street, Bariga where the police tracked him to and arrested him on Sunday evening.

Confirming the incident, police spokesman Bala Elkana said detectives tracked the suspect to the location after the girl’s mother reported her abduction.

He said the woman told the police she strongly believed Omade was responsible for her sudden disappearance.

Elkana said the teenager was rescued from the location, adding that the suspect confessed to the crime.

Elkana said the case was under investigation.
