We were living in the same compound before I parked to my current apartment.Later, my friend asked me to help him to look for a new apartment and I found one for him on my street. Since he parked to my street, we have been visiting each other and the girl has been running errands for me.
“Unfortunately, one day the girl came to my house and embraced me. That was how I started having feelings for her. The devil caused it. I know that I shouldn’t have done what I did; I had not done that kind of thing before, but the way she embraced me made me lose control of myself. I am pleading with everybody to forgive me.” The Commissioner of Police in Abia State, Mr. Adeleye Oyebade, who paraded the suspect at the Command’s headquarters in Umuahia, said Oleka was arrested by police operatives attached to the Central police station, Aba, following a complaint made by one Daniel Efuruezu, an uncle to the rape victim.
