The police spokesman in the state, ASP Sunday Abutu, said investigation revealed that the victim was lured by Adewumi into his mother’s house and drugged her on the fateful day she disappeared.
ASP Abutu further said, “The victim said after consuming the drugs given to her by Adewumi, she could not remember to go back home. She said she is now a drug addict due to the amount of drugs consumed within the three years of her enslavement.

The police further said during interrogation Adewumi confessed to the crimes and that he and his mother would be charged to court for conspiracy to wit abduction, rape and child exploitation.
