DSS Rescues American who was Raped, Abducted By Social Media Lover In Lagos

.
Operatives of the Department of State Services, on Monday, rescued an American, Tawanda Lynn Jackson, who was held hostage by one Mathew Adedoyin, whom she had met on social media.
.
.
Parading the prime suspect, and his accomplice, Idowu Ayeni, the Director of the Command, Betty Adoki, said the the American, 46, who had arrived Nigeria, on November 11, and was received at the Lagos airport by the suspect, was held hostage on November 21, where she was allegedly raped several times.
.
.
According to her, the American Embassy in Lagos had reported to the Command about Jackson’s abduction and they immediately commenced investigation, which culminated in the raid of the criminal hideout by a team of security operatives and Military personnel.

.
Adoki said the suspect had lured the mother of five through social media, purportedly for a visit, claiming to be a wealthy prince from Arogbatesu royal family of Ile-Ife, Osun State, with the intention of extorting money from her.
.
.
Adedoyin, 40, lied to the victim that he was an exporter of ginger and bitter cola, with a large plantation of cocoa and palm oil, claiming that he had a lot of slaves working for him.
.
.
Adoki said: “He said that his father was a former king of Ife Titun, Osun State and that he was heir apparent to the throne. He further cajoled the victim that he owns several buildings in Lagos, including where Jackson was held hostage in Abule Egba.
.
.
But the victim started to suspect foul play when he was losing patience and said he rented the place meanwhile, it was a ramshackle place he said his father owned.”
.
.
Adoki said Adedoyin, in furtherance to his deceit, was discovered to have reserved Protea Hotel, Ikeja, as accommodation for the victim while in Nigeria, but deliberately moved her to another hotel.
.
.
He did that in order to prevent the monitoring of Jackson by the U.S Embassy, while he eventually seized her International Passport, credit card and U.S Identity card in order to prevent her possible escape. –
