One Ogochukwu Namanene, 25, has been arrested by the Niger State Police Command for allegedly raping a corps member, Punchng reports.
Namanene was said to have raped the 22-year-old graduate serving at Janki Secondary school, Lapai, while returning from Lagos to Lapai. .
It was learnt that Namanene had been making advances to the victim before the incident. The suspect pretended to be a commercial motorcyclist and while taking the corps member to her lodge, dragged her into the bush, overpowered and sexually assaulted her. .
Namanene told Punchng that he has “a soft spot” for the victim but did not know how to woo her. “I was telling her to cooperate with me that I only wanted to express my affection for her but she refused. .
I beat her mercilessly until she became weak. After raping her, I rode my motorcycle away not knowing that the wrath of the law would catch up with me.
Honestly, I love the corper but I don’t have the courage to express my affection for her, that was why I forcefully made love to her,” Namanene said.
