Mr. Sunday Nwokoro, a 70-year-old former bus driver was apprehended for allegedly raping a 12-year-old primary four pupil of Agbor model primary school Agbor, Delta state. He was caught while visiting his victim’s house.

“Mr. Sunday Nwokoro lives near my house at Umudein Street, Agbor. My children usually visit his house to watch the film, unfortunately, I did not know he was sleeping with my third child, a primary four pupil at Agbor Model Primary School, Agbor. 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.
Mr. Friday explained that he couldn’t keep a close watch on his children because of the nature of his job as a security man. The mother of the victim is late and that leaves the father with the sole responsibility of taking care of the children.
He said his daughter exposed the man who forced her to be sleeping with him when he came to their house recently to sympathize with him over the loss of his mother.
The victim’s father also mentioned that the girl was recently treated as she showed signs of sickness. After she exposed the man to her father, he questioned him but the suspect denied but he later acknowledged his deeds when the security men of the community stepped into the matter.
The victim explained what happened, she said:
“I went with my friends to watch the film in his house (Mr. Nwokoro) house where he dragged me into his room and promised to give me #100, anytime I sleep with him.While in his room he overpowered me and fingered me severally.He disvirgins me.I reported him to my father when he visited our house yesterday.”
The suspect, Mr. Nwokoro pleaded for justice to be tempered with mercy as it was the devil that pushed him to commit the crime.
