A 41-year old man has been arrested in Lagos after he lured a 9-year old girl into his apartment and forced her to suck his joystick in order to satisfy his desire in Mushin area of Lagos where he resided with the victim’s parents.
The suspect, Mr. Ikechukwu Ezekwe, allegedly returned from work at about 5pm on the fateful day this month of August and lured the victim into his apartment. He was said to have removed his trouser, brought out his erect joystick, forced it into the victim’s mouth and asked her to suck it until he was satisfied.
Having satisfied himself, he opened his door and allowed the 9-year old girl to go but warned her not to tell her parents about what happened. However, the victim reported what happened to her parents when they were not around and they confronted Ezekwe but he denied.
The matter was reported to the police at the Gender Section of the State Command; Ezekwe was arrested and detained for interrogation.
He denied initially and then the victim was brought before him. He was said to have then admitted but claimed that he did not rape the 9-year old, that he only put his joystick into her mouth.
The police found him culpable and charged him before the Ogba Magistrates court for the offence.
The prosecutor, Supol Christopher John, informed the court that the victim was a minor and asked that the matter be referred to DPP for advice.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mr. Peter Nwaka, did not take his plea and denied him bail.
The court ordered him to be remanded in prison custody and directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to DPP for advice.
The matter was adjourned till 17th September, 2018 for the report of the DPP advice to be available.
