A 39-year-old man identified as Chika Okafor, a resident of 3/16 Oketa Street, Mende, Maryland, Lagos, who, on October 17, 2018, raped a 15-year-old girl and shaved her pubic hair, has been arrested.
The teenager had run from home because her mum threatened to beat her for losing an important item. The suspect got her into his car and took her to a beer parlour where he convinced her to take some liquor.
Being her first time to indulge in such habit, the girl was completely knocked out after guzzling several bottles of alcoholic drinks. Seeing the state of the girl, Okafor took her to a hotel at Oshodi.
At this point, the little girl whom he had completely undressed, told him to let her be because she was a virgin, but he still went ahead and shaved her pubic hair, defiled her and went away with the shaved hair.
The following morning, the suspect took her to his friend’s place in Maryland and had his way with her the second time. He thereafter took the girl in his car and dropped her at the nearest location to her parents’ house.
However, the girl narrated her ordeal to her mum and she immediately petitioned the Commissioner of Police Imohimi Edgal who ordered a manhunt against the suspect.
He was, eventually, arrested on November 24, by detectives attached to the Gender Unit of the Lagos State police Command and will be charged to family Court on Friday.
