Unfortunately, the girl he r*ped turned out to be his aunt’s daughter from Umuezeleke family in Azia town in Ihiala local government of Anambra State.
According to police source, the victim left her parents’ house in Aguda, Surulere, Lagos and was taken to a hotel in Ikorodu where she was drugged with apple, r*ped and then abandoned by the suspect despite her condition.
It was while she was wandering in Ikorodu the next day that a Samaritan met her and contacted her mom. The girl was handed over to her mom at Ketu police station.
Chukwukere met the victim on Facebook and they started love chatting since last year.
However, last week, Chukwukere invited her out and they arranged to meet at Oshodi area of Lagos.
When the victim arrived at Oshodi, she contacted the suspect who reportedly took her to the hotel in Ikorodu.
The matter was reported to the police at Aguda division who trailed the suspect through his Facebook page and got him arrested at Second Gate in Agidingbi area of Ikeja where he sells second hand vehicles and spare parts.
The suspect was charged before Surulere Magistrate and Family court on Tuesday with the alleged offence and he pleaded not guilty.
It was at the court that the suspect’s father recognised the girl’s mom as one of his relatives.
The court also ordered the prosecutor, Inspector Benson to duplicate his file and send to the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP for advice.
The matter was adjourned till 7th April 2017.
