A 56 year old driver at a popular transport company along Okpe Road in Sapele, Delta State has been arrested for allegedly impregnating a 15 year old girl and abducting her from her grandmother’s house for abortion.
Mr. Vincent Idogho allegedly started sleeping with the minor last November.
Reports gathered that each time the girl is returning from school, the suspect would lay in ambush and lure the little girl and sometimes threaten her.
The girl refused to tell anyone as a result of this threats and she was suspected to be pregnant as she went to school on Monday and did not return home.
When there was no news of her whereabouts and much waiting, she was reported to the police and was located on Tuesday where Mr. Vincent kept her.
After she was questioned, the girl said Mr. Vincent gave money to a woman to purchase drugs to abort the pregnancy.
He was arrested alongside the woman, detained and is still in police custody awaiting trial.
