after his arrest and two others by the NSCDC in Ondo State, Mr Oke admitted to the crime.
‘It has not been long I moved into the apartment where the incident took place about a month ago. Yes, I indeed violated my neighbour’s daughter. It was the devil that dragged me into perpetrating the act.
‘I’m beginning the general public, particularly my family, to help me plead with the girl’s parents not to be angered. I also pray that God will touch her heart to forgive me because I don’t wish to be in prison,’ Oke said.
