A lawyer in Ado-Ekiti, Mr. Dele Adefisayo, has absolved Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, of complicity in the alleged trafficking and sale of three girls from the state at a Libya slave camp.
The victims are: Miss Dolapo Bamise, Miss Titilope Olorunfemi and Miss Ayomiotan Adedara.
They were purported to be on a trip to Dubai but ended up in a slave camp in Libya, where they were allegedly sold.
In a letter, Adefisayo claimed “it was the travel agents who conned the girls and their parents, using the name of the deputy governor.”
The lawyer also claimed that the parents were not satisfied with the police handling of the matter.
Adefisayo said: “This is an insult on the personality of the deputy governor as we believe that his purported involvement is untrue and a ruse to cover up the illegality committed by the duo of Mrs. Nike (Omoseke) Akomolafe and Mr. Simeon Dada (Ogundare).”
In the letter he signed on behalf of the parents – Mrs. Helen Bamise, Madam Margaret Olorunfemi and Madam Feyisayo Adedara – the lawyer claimed that they said their children were lured into travelling abroad by Mrs. Akomolafe.
He described Mrs. Akomolafe as a prophetess lafe.
In the letter addressed to Governor Ayo Fayose and the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State Criminal Investigation Department, Ekiti State Command, and titled: “Complaint or Abduction and Human Trafficking Committed by Mrs. Nike Akomolafe and Mr. Dada Simeon,” Adefisayo said: “I have the instruction of Mrs. Helen Bamise, Feyisayo Adedara and Madam Margret Olorunfemi (herein referred to as “my clients”) to write this petition.
“My clients are sister and mother to Miss Dolapo Bamise and Miss Titilope Olorunfemi, respectively. Miss Dolapo Bamise and Miss Titilope Olorunfemi were lured into a purported ‘traveling abroad arrangement’ by Mrs. Nike Akomolafe.
“They are among other victims of this purported ‘travelling abroad arrangement’ which later turned out to be abduction and human trafficking.
“Mrs. Nike Akomolafe is already in police custody at the State CID in connection with the same offence of the report of the matter by the victims’ relations. Mrs. Nike Akomolafe has already pointed to another suspect, Mr. Dada Simeon, whom she said was in charge of the human trafficking.”
