25-year-old Ebenezer Adeshina is now cooling his heels in police custody after he was arrested by operatives of the Ogun State Police Command.

The Command spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi revealed that Adeshina was arrested after a teenage girl reported the development at the Egbado Owode Police Division.

"Adeshina deceptively had carnal knowledge of the teenage girl he met on Facebook and even wanted to exploit her by giving her an option of parting with N50,000 or get her nude pictures splashed on social media.

"The suspect, Ebenezer Adeshina lured the victim to his abode and, oblivious of his ulterior motive, the girl, with plain mind, gladly took the drink he offered her.

"Lo and behold, Ebenezer had laced the drink with a sedative drug which threw the girl into a state of unconsciousness, following which he raped her.

"As if that was not enough a humiliation, Ebenezer, while the girl was still unconscious, snapped her nakedness, a game plan he wanted to use to blackmail the victim, threatening to post it on social media, except she was willing to pay him the sum of N50,000.

"Distraught by this development, the teenage girl raced to Owode-Egbado Police Division in Ogun State, under which jurisdiction the incident took place, and lodged a complaint to that effect.

"The victim had in her statement said that she met the suspect on Facebook sometime in 2021, and they have been chatting until her phone developed a fault, leading to loss in communication.

"But in the month of March, this year, the suspect called her and demanded for reason(s) she chose not to chat with him again, to which the victim explained that it was due to her spoilt handset.

"The suspect then asked her to come over to his house to collect the sum of 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 had been laced with a sedative drug.

"Immediately she took the drink, she became unconscious and the suspect used that 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.

"Upon the report, the DPO, CSP Muhammad S Baba, detailed his detectives to go after the suspect.

"He was eventually apprehended on May 6, and has confessed to the commission of the crime", the PPRO said."

Oyeyemi disclosed that the suspect has been transferred to the Anti-human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and possible prosecution under the instruction of Lanre Bankole, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police.
