A bus driver, Mr Sunday Nwokoro, a bus driver, was yesterday, arrested for allegedly raping a 12-year-old primary four pupil of Agbor Model Primary School, Agbor.
The victim's father, Friday
Egbineka, narrated the story:
“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
Mr. Nwokoro, who was also given the opportunity to speak, however said the devil pushed him into it
and begged that justice be tempered with mercy.
