Federal High CourtThe Lagos State Police Command has arraigned a 55-year-old security guard, Yekini Ogunjobi, before an Ikeja Chief Magistrate’s Court, for allegedly abducting, hypnotising, and raping a 14-year-old girl in his apartment for four days, PUNCH reports.

According to the Police, the victim was rescued from Ogunjobi’s apartment on Esuola Street, Oko-Oba, in the Agege area of Lagos.

The family had declared her missing after she went on an errand on Esuola Street and never came back.

However, on July 28, one of the victim’s relatives was said to be passing by the street when she sighted her and raised the alarm. The relative reported to the police, who rescued the girl and arrested Ogunjobi.

According to a Police source, “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”.

The police prosecutor, Sergeant Rafael Donny, charged the suspect with abduction and rape. The charge read:

That you, Yekini Ogunjobi, between July 25 and 28, 2016, on Esuola Street, Oko-Oba, Agege, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did commit felony to wit: abduction.

That you, on the same date time and place, in the aforementioned magisterial district, did unlawfully detain a 14-year-old girl and have sexual intercourse with her against her consent, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

Ogunjobi pleaded not guilty to the charge and elected summary trial.

The presiding Chief Magistrate, Tajudeen Elias, then granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum, and adjourned the to October 6, 2016 for mention.

    If only our government would make rape penalty to be as severe as death like some Asian countries., these pedophiles would give their lives to christ automatically. Imagine being released at N100,000, as if house arrest works in this country. Our judiciary is definitely not serious and this rapists and abductors are doing very well with the advantage. You can barely hear of kidnap now in Anambra state because the people saw that the government will kill them and destroy their properties immediately you are caught or even mentioned as an associate. I am doing all I can to protect my children and wards with and by God’s special grace. PERIOD. Happy new month people!!

    I think rape after being proved should be charged with a death sentence.

    I don’t think this judge is serious at all. Bail of #100k and 2 sureties so that he can grab the next 14year old he sees once he gets back home. The system is really messed up. How can you rape a child for 4 days and still be granted bail at such meagre amount. Rubbish. The death penalty should be given to people (men and women) who rape children and adults.
