A commercial motorcyclist in Lagos has been arrested for allegedly raping a minor for six months.
A 38-year-old commercial motorcyclist popularly called 'Okadaman', Obinna Ekusaba, has been arrested by the police in Lagos for allegedly raping an 11-year-old primary school pupil repeatedly for six months starting from December, 2014, to May, 2015, when he was busted.
According to reports, the girl's mother sells alcoholic drinks and cigarettes along Karimu Street in Kirikiri Town and Ekusaba has been one of her regular customers but he extended his patronage to the minor by having unbridled sex with her anytime he felt like it.
The mother told newsmen that on the day Ekusaba, a married man with four children, began his sex rampage on her daughter, she was away and he called her to bring a bottle of drink into an uncompleted building in the motor park and when she got there, he lured her with money and raped her.
After that, he took it a point of duty to sleep with the girl anytime she wanted until her mother observed on May 19 that her private parts had enlarged.
The girl only confessed after her mother put a lot of pressure on her. The mother reported the crime at the Kirikiri Police Division and he was subsequently arrested.
The girl told the police that the first time the 'Okadaman' slept with her, he gave her the sum of N1,000.
"Brother Obinna (Ekusaba) used to buy cigarette, water and alcoholic drinks from my mother’s shop.
Last year, I was in my mother’s shop when Brother Obinna called me to bring a bottle for him inside the building.
"On getting there, he put his hand inside his pocket and brought out N500; he asked me to enter. But I told him my daddy used to give me N500. He then brought out N1,000. As I entered the building, he removed my pants and put his private parts inside my own.
After he removed it, I demanded the money and he brought it out. As I was about to collect it, he put it back inside his pocket. That was how Brother Obinna started sleeping with me."
Ekusaba also confessed to his crimes:
"I came to Lagos 10 years ago and I started riding motorcycle. I know the complainant as the mother of the victim. She is like a sister to me. I have been making love with her daughter for long.
When we started, I told her I would buy something for her, but I didn’t buy her anything. I slept with her five times.
Each time I wanted to sleep with her, I would carry her on my lap. It was on the fifth time that I could penetrate.
I slept with her at a car park. I did it during the day and night inside the park. I know I have committed an offence."
