An 18-year-old secondary school student, Sopuruchukwu Onuoha, has been arrested for raping his neighbour. He, however, denied the allegation.
The suspect told Southern News that she had gone downstairs to hand her dad his charger at their residence on Rotibi Street in Owerri before the incident happened. She said Onuoha, who had hidden in their flat before she returned, had grabbed her form the back and forced himself on her. She claimed that he had left her with blood all over her pant and dress.
The victim said she had bitten his hand which she said would serve as proof that the incident happened. She said Onuoha had been arrested after she told her mum who reported to her father.
The medical report issued by the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri showed that the victim was indeed raped.
Police say investigation into the case has reached an advanced stage and will soon be transferred to the Criminal Investigation Department of the police command.
