Operatives of the Lagos State Command have arrested two men, a 25-year-old Tewase Peter and Ternugwa Paul, 26, for allegedly abducting two teenagers from Benue State.

The victims, one Precious, a 16-year-old girl and Agera, a 15-year-old boy, were rescued from their abductors at the Itaoluwa area of Ikorodu in Lagos State.

The State's Police spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this in a post on his verified X handle.


He stated, “Preliminary investigations revealed that the victims were abducted from their home in Benue State while their mother was away in the market.

“After the mother's numerous attempts to contact the older victim via his mobile phone, a Good Samaritan answered the phone while the suspects were not at home with the victims, and informed the mother that one of the suspects, Peter, accompanied by his friend, one Paul, had taken her daughters to Lagos with intentions to transport them to Ghana for forced labour.”

Hundeyin further stated, “Upon receiving the information at the Lagos State Police Command, detectives of the State Criminal Investigation Department busted Peter's place at Itaoluwo, Ikorodu, and rescued the victims successfully.”

He added that investigation was ongoing to apprehend all other individuals involved in this crime while the suspects would be arraigned at the conclusion of investigations.
