  • I put my hand in her vagina to check, but, I let her go when I discovered she was a virgin, because – Rape suspect

A driver, Emmanuel Okorie, who was allegedly accused of raping a 15-year-old girl said to be a sister to one of his neighbours has denied the allegation against him by the Lagos State Government noting that although, he checked with his hand, but didn’t rape the victim after he discovered she was a virgin.

Okorie, who is reportedly standing trial before a Lagos High Court sitting in Igbosere, told Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye on Wednesday that, “I let her go when I discovered that she was a virgin. I put my hand in her vagina and when I noticed that she was a virgin, I didn’t have sex with her.”

The defendant noted that the incident occurred at his elder sister’s house in Ejigbo area of Lagos.

Meanwhile, the suspect’s counsel Mr Worer Obuagbaka, insisted that he didn’t make any confessional statement, nor told his investigative police officer that he had sex with the victim.

“This statement you are seeing was not written by me, I was not given any paper to write. l was inside the cell, when a man nicked named Sean Paul, came and brought me out to where the IPO was.

“The the next thing he did was to slap me and then I saw Inspector Amina Adeoye with an envelope and I was asked to sign.

“When I asked to read the statement, Sean Paul hit me on my forehead and I started bleeding, I did not read the statement I signed under duress.”

However, the Lagos State Prosecutor, Mr Akin George, called the third prosecution witness, Inspector Amina Adeoye, who narrated how she recorded the defendant’s statement.

She said: ”On December 1, 2015, a case of defilement was transferred from Ejigbo Police Station to State Criminal Investigation Department SCID, Panti Yaba, and the victim that was defiled was 15-year-old then.”

“I took the statement of the victim and after the defendant’s statement had been taken, we had to refer the victim to Mirabel Center at Lagos University Teaching Hospital LASUTH, she was treated and the report was sent to our office.

She also told the Court that she read the statement Okorie made at Ejigbo, where he denied committing the offence, adding that she did not force him, to sign the statement.

“He wrote the statement that the girl and her friend were actually coming back from school, when the incident occurred”, Adeoye said.

Nevertheless, the victim, who is said to be a Senior Secondary School Student, narrated before the Court that she and her friend were coming back from School, around 4pm, when the defendant called her, because her aunt sells provision, and said he bought a drink from her aunt that she should help him return the bottle.

She said: “He asked me if I was a virgin, I told him I am. After a while, I saw my skirt down and wet, I saw myself on the bed after he was through with what he did, he opened the door I was crying and he started pleading with me.

“He had sex with me and I was crying and pleading that he should leave me, but he did not listen to me.

“I fell sick, I was crying and went to my friend’s mother’s shop, she asked me what happened. He was at my back begging me to stop crying. He was about to run away when he was apprehended”

The case has been adjourned till July, 5, for continuation of trial.
