A crowd gathered at the Oyo State Police command, Eleyele Ibadan to watch in disbelief as a 65-year old man, Akinlolu Ogunlade was paraded by the Police Command for keeping an 11-year old girl as his sex slave for four days.
The man claimed that pressures from the girl made him to keep her as sex slave for four days. Mr Ogunlade, a plumber by profession, said he had earlier on rejected many advances and invitations from the girl before he finally succumbed.
While being paraded by the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Leye Oyebade, who described the suspect as a serial rapist, Ogunlade said,
“I am 65 yrs old and I work as a plumber. I was arrested at Akobo area. The little girl came over to me and started disturbing me to have sex with her and I told her that she was too small.
I told her she could not do something of such but she replied by telling me that she could do it. I thereafter had sex with her two times and kept her in my custody just for four days.”
When asked if he did not have a wife, Mr Ogunlade said that his wife was dead and that he had only one child.
The police alleged that the suspect specialised in abducting teenage girls and keeping them in his hideout as sex slaves. Narrating how the old man committed the alleged offence, the CP said:
“The victim, Bisi (surname withheld), aged 11, left home on May 27 at about 8pm for a church vigil at Abidi-Odan area, Akobo, Ibadan but did not return home on Saturday and all efforts to locate her whereabouts proved abortive.
However on May 30, at about 1630, police detectives, based on information, traced the victim to the hideout of the suspect at Abidi- Odan area of Akobo, Ibadan where his victim was rescued.”
