A 40-year-old motorcyclist named Uche Imo, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl.

The 13-year-old girl, whose name is Princess, confessed the abuse to her mother after much persuasion.

According to Punch, Imo lured the young girl to a hotel with cake, and has been reported to have sex with her on four different occassions.

Princess said, “I am in primary six and live on the same street with Baba Joy. In December 2015, he took me to the hotel and had sex with me. "

"I did not want to enter, but the hotel manager said I should. He had taken me there four times and he usually bought cake for me.”

The victim's mother mentioned that she pays Imo, also known as 'Baba Joy' N200 to take her daughter to school.

It was through this opportunity that Imo was able to engage in the abominable act with her daughter.

She said, “Baba Joy (Imo) was my neighbour and was the one taking my children to school. I paid him N200 every day."

"On February 14, he came to me and said he wanted to take them out and I allowed him. He bought meat pie and ice cream for them."

"When they came back, Helen said I should ask her sister what happened between her and Baba Joy."

“I asked her, but she denied that anything happened between them. It was when I started beating her that she confessed that Baba Joy had sex with her, adding that it had been happening for long.”

Punch also reports that the manager of the hotel Imo visits with Princess knew about the ungodly relationship he was having with her.

Imo confirmed this when he said, “There was a day I took her to the hotel and she did not want to enter. The manager pleaded with her on my behalf. I paid N500 for an hour,”

The matter has already been presented to the Apapa Magistrate Court in Lagos. Imo pleaded not guilty to the crime and has been granted bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

The case is to continue on April 21, 2016.
