A 45-year-old man has been docked for kidnapping and raping a neighbour's 14-year-old daughter.
A 45-year-old man, Santana Obend, has been remanded at the Kirikiri Maximum Prison in Lagos after he was dragged before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on charges of rape and kidnapping, after the court heard that he allegedly abducted his neighbour's 14-year-old daughter and kept her as his sex slave for three days where he engaged in a marathon sex sessions with her.
The accused who is a security man, lives at No. 9, Ajegunle Close, Isheri area of Lagos, was said to have abducted the girl on August 7, and hid her in his apartment where he engaged in several rounds of sexual intercourse with her until she was rescued.
The police prosecutor, Sgt. Jimah Isegede, had told the court that Obend committed an offence that contravened Sections 141(1) and 258(1) of the Criminal Code of Lagos State, 2011.
“The accused abducted his neighbour’s 14-year-old daughter for three days in his apartment and unlawfully had sexual intercourse with her several times.
All effort for the victim’s parents to see their daughter proved abortive until she was sighted by another neighbour in the apartment of the accused.”
When the charge was read to him, Obend pleaded not guilty and the Chief Magistrate, Tajudeen Elias, ordered he be remanded in prison custody pending the determination of his bail application on September 18, 2015.
