Sunday Nwokoro, a bus driver, was yesterday, arrested for allegedly raping a 12-year-old primary four pupil of Agbor Model Primary School, Agbor. According to Friday Egbineka, the father of the victim: “Nwokoro lives near my house at Umudein Street, Agbor.
My children usually visit his house to watch film, unfortunately, i did not know he was sleeping with my third child, a primary four pupil at. Before now my other children reported to me that their sister, keeps late nights.
I did not know about this on time because i am a security man in one of the private secondary schools in Agbor. My job keeps me outside all the time, hence, i was not able to monitor my children activities effectively.
I lost their mother late last year and my own mother recently. Nwokoro came to sympathize with me over my loss, when my daughter told me that he was the man sleeping with her.
Prior to this time, my daughter was having symptoms of sickness and we had earlier treated her medically. Immediately she told us how Nwokoro forced her to be sleeping with him, we approached him but he denied the allegation. .
He later admitted after members of Agbor Gha Ihun were invited. I want justice to prevail.” In an interview, the rape victim, told newsmen that Nwokoro had intercourse with her, saying:
“I went with my friends to watch film in his house where he dragged me into his room and promised to give me N100 anytime i sleep with him. While in his room he overpowered me and fingered me severally. .
He disvirgin me. I reported him to my father when he visited our house yesterday.” Nwokoro, however, said the devil pushed him into it and begged that justice be tempered with mercy.
