A twelve-year-old girl identified as Tawa Taiwo, who was reportedly kidnapped in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, has been found in Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State.
She was said to have escaped from her abductors on Monday.
Tawa, at the time of this report, was in custody at Oye-Ekiti Police Station from where she will be taken to the local government council for onward transfer to the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development.
A resident of Oye-Ekiti, who pleaded anonymity, said Tawa was found roaming the streets of Oye-Ekiti but was quizzed by residents.
“We saw her roaming around and her outlook resembled somebody that was frightened. The source said.
