The police in Anambra State have arrested one Emeka Okeke for allegedly raping a 36- year – old woman .
Okeke (28 ), an ex – convict , was said to have waylaid the woman with a toy gun on her way home at about 9 pm that day.
The suspect whose nickname was given as “ Aso- Rock’ , reportedly threatened to kill the victim with a toy gun tucked in his waist should she refuse his request .
It was gathered that the suspect led the victim to a nearby unoccupied building and later to a school where he had sex with her several times.
Okeke was nabbed following a complaint by the victim to the police .
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state , Haruna Mohammed , confirmed the incident to our correspondent.
Mohammed said the suspect was trailed and arrested by police detectives in conjunction with a vigilance group attached to Opuno community.
The PPRO added , “On May 7 , 2020 , a 36- year – old woman resident at UNIZIK temp- site Awka , reported at B Division Awka that at about 9 pm of May 6 , while departing with her friend at Okochi Okpuno , a man later identified as Emeka Okeke ( 28) alias ‘ Aso Rock ’ followed her closely , raised his shirt to show her a ‘ gun’ tucked in his waist , and threatened to shoot her dead if she did not submit herself to his demand for sex.
“ Consequently , the frightened victim , believing it was a real gun, and under the fear of being shot dead , followed him to a building in Okochi where he forcefully had carnal knowledge of her .
“ Again, while being led out of the venue , the suspect forcefully led her to the premises of Community Primary School , where he had another rounds of sex with the victim .
Mohammed said the victim was taken to hospital for medical examination and treatment , adding that the suspect, who he described as ‘ a notorious offender who recently returned from the correctional centre Awka over alleged case of manslaughter” , had been detained .
He said the Commissioner of Police in the state , John Abang , had ordered the transfer of the case to the State Criminal investigation Department Awka for discreet investigation after which suspect would be charged to court.
