A 70-year-old man, Akinolu Ogunlade, is in police net in Ibadan for allegedly kidnapping and turning an eight-year-old girl to a sex slave.
Sources said that the incident occurred at Abidi Odan area of Akobo in Ibadan where the suspect harboured the victim in his place of work for almost three weeks and daily defiled her.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for Oyo State Command, SP Adekunle Ajisebutu, confirmed the incident.
The girl told newsmen in Ibadan that she was kidnapped by the old man when she was coming from a vigil about three weeks back.
Also speaking with newsmen, the mother of the victim, Mrs Modinat Oladejo, said she had taken several measures to search for her missing daughter without success.
The grandmother of the girl, Mrs Falilat Oladejo, while corroborating the assertions, said she had also joined in the search team as she explained that the young girl was not known to be wayward.
Reacting, the suspect, Akinlolu Ogunlade, an indigene of Akure, Ondo State, initially denied having sex with the minor but later explained that he was not the first man to sleep with her and that he only harboured her for 21 days when she said her parents had travelled.
