"It was the devil's handiwork" - 55-year-old man caught in the bathroom with 14-year-old girl claims

A 55-year-old father of three, identified as Emeka Okwuome, who was caught inside the bathroom, assaulting a primary six pupil has blamed the devil for his act.

It was gathered that the 14-year-old victim lost her mother and was brought from the village to live with a relative at 22, Oladuni Street.

The girl had gone to the bathroom to take her bath on Friday 17th July, when the suspect who is a trader at Ladipo Market ordered her to open the bathroom door for him saying that he wanted to urinate.

The girl said that she opened the door because she was scared and when he got in, he started fondling her breast and inserted his fingers into her private part.

According to the girl, Okwuome had abused her in the kitchen before. He met her in the kitchen one day and started fondling her breasts. She said that he released her when he heard footsteps approaching and warned her not to tell anybody what he did.

When Okwuome was questioned by the police, he said that it was the handiwork of the devil.

Okwuome however pleaded asking who would take care of his children if he goes to jail, especially his mentally deranged daughter.
