Man Rapes 15-Year-Old Orphan At Gunpoint In Enugu (Photo)
A carpenter, identified as Casmir Eze, is now in the custody of the police in Enugu State for allegedly defying a 15-year-old orphan at gunpoint.
Eze, from Umugoji Orba in Udenu Local Government Area, had on Sunday, about 2am, allegedly gained entrance into the compound of the victim, Ogechi (surname withheld), an SS1 student, by scaling the fence and threatening to kill the victim if she failed to open her door. The suspect also warned the victim not to shout or alert the neighbours.
After Ogechi opened the door, Eze, who covered his face with a scarf, allegedly pointed a gun at the victim and ordered her to switch off the lantern in the room. He thereafter pounced on the victim and forcibly had carnal knowledge of her.
Unknown that the victim had identified him, Eze fled after satisfying his sexual urge. But Ogechi reported the incident to Eze’s relations who helped her to report it to the police.
The police later arrested the suspect. Eze told his interrogators that he committed the crime but said it was the devil which pushed him into the act.
He said: “I don’t know what came over me. I have been planning how to get the girl. I decided on this method after other means failed.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Ebere Amaraizu, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), confirmed the story yesterday. Amaraizu said that operatives of the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department (SCIID), had commenced a full scale investigation into the incident.
The PPRO said: “The suspect is now begging for forgiveness and at the same time attributing the incident to the act of devil.”
