Shocker-Tenant & mum kidnap landlord's daughter for 3years, impregnates her(Photo)

The Lagos State Police Command has apprehended a 37-year-old man, Ajibola
Idowu and his mother, for allegedly kidnapping his landlord's daughter for three
years. Within the three years of capitivity, Ajibola forcefully impregnated his victim,
Modupe Brown.
The police told PUNCH Metro that after Brown had given birth to the child, Ajibola
refused to allow the child access to immunisation. As a result, the child contracted
polio disease and subsequently became crippled.
According to the police:
Modupe Brown, a 400 level student of Business Administration at the Lagos State
University, was kidnapped by Ajibola who kept her in captivity with his family for
"three years between 2010 and 2013.
On September 19, 2013, policemen from Area E Command, went to the Sagamu
area of Ogun State to rescue the victim and also arrested the mother of the
abductor, who watched over the victim. Ajibola was later arrested in the Idumota
area of Lagos Island."
During the three years, Ajibola kept Brown in three locations -Oshogbo, Osun
State, where she spent six months; Bariga, Lagos, where she spent six
months; and Sagamu, Ogun State, where she spent about two years.
Ajibola forcefully impregnated Brown while in captivity. She delivered a baby
girl, who later became deformed as a result of Ajibola's refusal to have the
baby immunised against the Polio virus."
Telling her story, Brown described her ordeal in the hands of her abductor as a
journey through the valley of the shadow of death. She said she was abducted at
her father's house in the Ebute Meta area of Lagos State. She said:
"I can't even remember how he kidnapped me. All I know is that he held me
captive for three years. It's as if I was under a spell. Even when I was going
to give birth, he did not allow me to go to a hospital. The baby was delivered
at home and he was the one giving me medication.
Even one day, when state officials came to the area to immunise children, he
said he would not allow the child to be immunised, saying the drugs had been
poisoned. Once, when I tried to leave, he threatened to kill me."
PUNCH Metro learnt that during her time in captivity, the victim's parents, who are
retired civil servants, searched hospitals, mortuaries, police stations and churches
for her all to no avail.
The victim's father, Idowu Brown, said he had no clue that Ajibola was the
abductor. He said:
"I never knew it was Ajibola that kidnapped my daughter. He was my tenant
for six years and greeted me every day. We even used to share jokes. He was
aware that I had been looking "for my daughter for three years but he never
said anything."When we could not find her, I reported the matter at FESTAC
Police Division.
It was in September this year that we heard from our daughter for the first
time. She told us that she was in Sagamu and my wife went there.
There we met Ajibola's mother. That was how we found out that he (tenant) was
the one behind the whole thing.
The suspects however denied abducting the landlord's daughter. Ajibola's mother
claimed her son and Brown were lovers, who decided to elope, maintaining that the
case was not an abduction. She said:
"They were lovers. I never got involved in their matter until the child was born.
I went to stay with them for about seven months to take care of the child, who
was very ill. A few months after I left, they moved in with me at my three-
bedroom house at Sagamu because they had been evicted.
Ajibola was not staying with us because his business was in Lagos but I was
with Brown "most of the time.
Many times, I would ask her about her parents and when I could meet them
but she kept on giving silly excuses until the day her mother came to my
house with policemen."
Ajibola, who is into satellite dish installation, said the plan to elope was hatched
by Brown who paid N200, 000 into his bank account. The money was said to have
been meant for her school project.
He said he could not understand why she would make such allegations against
"I did not kidnap her; we were lovers and decided to elope. Even when she
was at my house, she used to make calls to her relatives telling them that she
was alright," he said.
