The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps(NSCDC), Ondo State Command on Thursday said it has arrested a 20 year-old Salesboy, Ebuka Okafor, over alleged sodomy with two young boys in the state.
Mr Pedro Awili,the state Commandant of NSCDC made the disclosure while parading the suspect and two others for various offences before newsmen in Akure.
Awili,who said that the boys(victims)were 12 and 13 years said that Okafor wanted to sleep with one of the victims in second time when the elderly one raised alarm before he was caught in the act.
He explained that Okafor was apprehended by group of vigilante at the Oja-Oshodi area in Akure metropolis before he was taken to the palace of Deji of Akure,Oba Aladelusi Adetoyibo,where he was later handed over to command for investigations.
“Okafor was almost beaten to death when the Deji of Akure intervened, and ordered he be brought to the office of NSCDC for interrogation.
“He has confessed to the crime in defiling two young boys of 12 and 13 year-old. And this is not the first time he has been sleeping with the two boys because Okafor and the victims have confirmed the crime,” Awili said.
He,therefore called on parents to always watch the movement of their children and wards and know the kind of people they play with.
Awili also admonished members of public to cooperate with security agencies by giving them timely, accurate and verified information that could help them carry out their work diligently.
“As we are here without information, we cannot work better.And if the suspect was not arrested by some youths, security agencies will not be able to know what is happening in the society,” he said.
Speaking with newsmen, Okafor, who confessed and regretted his action said that he had been sleeping with the two boys since two months ago.
“I have been sleeping with them since August and whenever I have intercourse with them I always give them N200 each. And I only slept with them three times.
“The reason why I am sleeping them is that I dont have a girlfriend and i feel lonely in the shop always,” he said.
