“On arrival at the scene, it was discovered that three padlocks were used to lock the room. The locks had to be broken by the police before the little girl could be rescued,”  Ajisebutu said.

He said that the victim had been properly fed and taken to the police clinic for medical attention.

Ajisebutu said that the case was under investigation and that efforts had  been intensified to apprehend the suspect, who was at large.
