Ogun: Police arrest man for allegedly drugging, raping 16-year-old girl


The Ogun State Police Command, Monday, arrested Ebenezer Adeshina, 25, for allegedly drugging and raping a 16-year-old girl in the state.

Adesina also took her nude picture for blackmail of N50,000 and threatened to expose her on social media.

It was learnt the suspect met the unnamed young girl in 2021 as a Facebook friend.

The spokesman of the State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed this development to newsmen in Abeokuta.

While addressing newsmen, Adesina explained, “The suspect asked his victim to come to his house to collect N3,000 for the repair of the phone.

“On getting there, the suspect offered her a drink which she took, unknown to her that the drink has been laced with a sedative drug.

“Immediately she took the drink, she became unconscious and the suspect used the opportunity to have unlawful carnal knowledge of her against her wish.

“After having sex with her in the state of unconsciousness, the suspect took her nude pictures and started threatening to upload the pictures on social media if she didn’t pay him the sum of fifty thousand Naira.

“The DPO of Owode Egbado division, CSP Muhammad S. Baba, had detailed his detectives to go after the suspect and, he was eventually arrested by the police.

“He has confessed to the commission of the crime”.

But the State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the transfer of Adeshina to the Anti-human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation Department, CID, for further investigation and possible prosecution.
