Rape Obscene

It was the devil's handiwork- 55-year-old man who defiled 14-year-old girl says (screenshot)

A 55 year old widower named Emeka Okwuome, who was recently arrested for sexually assaulting his neighbors daughter who is just 14 year old, has been pleading for his release.

The incident took place at No 22, Oladuni Street, Ejigbo,Lagos where the widower was caught assaulting the primary six pupil, in a bathroom in their compound.

It was reported that the girl lost her mother and was brought to Lagos, to stay with her relative. She was in the bathroom when the man knocked on the door, and forced himself in when there are other empty bathrooms in the compound.

According to her,

"He walk up to me in the kitchen few days ago and started touching me, he hold me tightly and stopped when he heard someone coming, and warned me not to let anyone know what he did. I was bathing in the bathroom on Friday when he knocked and ordered me to open the bathroom, and that he want to urinate, I refused but he threatened me and i opened it because of fear. He came in and started touching my body, I told him to leave me but he threatened to beat me up.

He covered my mouth with one of his hand, but I continue screaming because the pain was too much, until one of our neighbor who also want to take a bath, heard my scream and asked how many people was in the bathroom, and says that she will not leave there until the people in the bathroom come out.”

However when 55 year old Emeka Okwuome was asked he blamed the devil.

"I didn't mean to do it, it was the devil's handiwork, I have pleaded with the family to allow us settle the matter, among both parties but they did not agree. If I go to jail, who will take care of my children, especially my daughter who is mentally deranged?”

However the family of the girl insisted that Emeka must go to jail.
