18 Years Old School Boy Arrested For Raping His Neighbour In Owerri


An 18 years old Secondary School student, identified as Sopuruchukwu Onuoha, has been reportedly arrested by operatives of the Owerri Area Command of the Nigeria Police Force for allegedly raping his neighbour (names withheld).

The rape victim, while speaking with newsmen on Tuesday, insisted that Onuoha raped her and she wouldn’t have anything to gain by lying against him with such sensitive allegation after the school boy who hails from Ekwereazu in Ahiazu Mbaise Council Area of the state, denied the allegation.

While narrating how the incident happened after her parents left home for work, the victim said;

“We live at No. 5, Rotibi Street in Owerri in a two-storeyed building. We live on the first floor while Onuoha and his parents live on the second floor.

“However, my dad called me to bring mobile phone charger to him on the ground floor, but little did I know that Onuoha heard it. He entered and hid himself in our flat.

“After giving the charger to my daddy and returned to our flat, Onuoha held me from the back, used his cloth to cover my mouth and started raping me.

“By the time he rose up from on top of me, blood started gushing out from my private parts and stained both my pants and dress. The only thing I succeeded in doing was biting him on his hand, which today stands for me as evidence.”

While crying, she further said that she immediately went down with the dress and reported to her returning mother, who told her husband who reported the case to the police and Onuoha was immediately arrested.

It was gathered that from preliminary examination conducted at the Federal Medical Centre in the victim, in Owerri, it was reported that she was indeed raped.

A police source who spoke on the case disclosed that investigation into the case had reached an advanced stage, while adding that the matter would soon be referred to the Criminal Investigation Department of the police command.
