26-year old Driver arrested for kidnap, trafficking of teenager

A 26-year-old driver is currently being investigated by Operatives of Osun State Amotekun for the alleged kidnapping of a 15-year-old girl (name withheld).

It was gathered that the suspect, a commercial bus (korope) driver in Osogbo, was said to be the driver of the bus boarded by the victim and charmed her and lured her to his house around Ita-Olokan in the state capital.

His efforts to have sex with the victim failed as she resisted him before commanding her to pack her belongings and relocate to his house.

It was gathered that the victim agreed to the deal, hence, he escorted her around Ibokun to pack her belongings but the victim raised alert thereby attracting some local security who apprehended him.

The victim told the local security group that she boarded the Korope bus from Oja-Oba towards Ilesa garage when she suddenly lost consciousness until she got to the room of the suspect in Ita-Olokan area.

“He wanted to rape me but I resisted, hence, used another charm before instructing me to go home and pack my belongings and I played along. He escorted me and I raised an alarm when I got home”, she said.

Confirming the incident on Monday, Osun Amotekun Corps Commandant, Bashir Adewinmbi disclosed that the suspect was arrested on Monday.

He added the suspect confessed to kidnapping and luring the girl to his house and has been transferred to the National Agency For Prohibition On Trafficking In Person (NAPTIP) headquarters, in Osogbo for subsequent interrogation and prosecution.
