According to the prosecutor in the case, DSP. Godwin Anyanwu, Okeke kidnapped the girl on March 26, 2015, from their employer's house at 18b, Prince Bode Oluwo Street, Mende, Maryland, Lagos, and kept her in his house for the purpose of having sexual intercourse with her.
"The convict is the driver while the victim is a housemaid to the complainant, one Mr. and Mrs. Emeka Umeevuruo. The complainant went to work and when they returned, they discovered that the victim and her belongings were missing.
The complainant called her cell phone but it was not reachable and they reported the matter at the nearest police station.
During investigations, the police noticed that the convict had stopped going to the complainant’s house for his normal duty. The police officers visited the convict’s house and saw the victim there.
The convict said that he abducted the victim for sexual satisfaction."
During the trial, Okeke pleaded guilty to the charge of abducting a girl with intent to have sexual intercourse with her and begged for mercy.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs A.O. Soladoye, therefore sentenced him following a plea of guilt by him.
