Adegoke Akinlade, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) and Divisional Police Officer in charge of Denton Police Station, Ebute Meta, Lagos, has detained Jennifer Madueke over lost pistol after office sex.
Punch gathered that Akinlade discovered his pistol was missing after an all-night sex with Madueke in his office and ordered her arrest, detention and torture.
“On Friday, August 27, he invited the lady to his office and slept with her till Saturday morning. He released her to go around 5 am and even saw her off to the bus stop,” a source was quoted to have said.
“They did not see each other again until last Saturday, September 4, when he invited the girl and told her they should go out. However, when she went to see him, he detained her and accused her of stealing his service pistol.
“He kept her in his cell till Monday, September 6. While the girl was in the cell, he asked his boys to torture her to make confessional statements. On that Monday, he took her to a herbalist on Jebba Street, Ebute Meta, Lagos, around 8am.
“The herbalist told him that it was the girl that took the pistol, but she denied the allegation. It was from there he took her to the SCIID, Yaba, where she has been detained till now.”
Another source, who revealed that the DPO was queried by Hakeem Odumosu, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, over the scandal, wondered why the senior police officer had not been dismissed.
Akinlade was said to have confirmed Madueke’s detention when contacted, but denied sleeping with her.
“She was my girlfriend in 2011, but we separated. About one and a half months ago, while I was around the stadium area, she came to greet me and that was how she knew where I was working and she started coming.
“When her coming did not favour me, I told her not to come again. On that Friday, I was at a club with one of my friends. It was there a girlfriend came to meet me. Then this lady came later. I never knew that she had a mission. I sent her away and said I was busy.
“The other lady with me told me that she was going to Bariga. She (Madueke) also came, but said she could not get a vehicle to her residence that night because it was late. I then left them (both ladies) in the office and went out on a night patrol.
“I left them there. Unknown to me, she had gone to pick a bag behind my chair. It was when she left that I discovered that my pistol was missing, with N50,000. I did not even care about the money, but I started calling her, and she did not pick the calls. She also blocked me on WhatsApp.
“We went to prayer houses and consulted alfas, me and the other girl, but we did not find her. I did not see her for one week. I paid people who tracked her.”
However, when contacted, Adegoke Fayoade, the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), claimed there was no such matter at the SCIID.
