“I was not at home when the incident happened and her younger brother had also gone out. So, she was alone in the house and it was possible he had been monitoring her movement. “When she called me and said what had happened, I left the office and went to the police station in Jakande Estate where I reported the matter.” A police source told Punch that investigators found a pack of condoms on the deceased, including a phone without a SIM card.He said,
“He was about wearing the condom when the girl hit him on the head and he died. His mission was to rape her and steal from the house. He probably took advantage of her frail stature. “We have got information that he was not alone. He belonged to a gang that has been terrorising Lekki residents for some time now. And that’s why since this incident, nobody knows his name and address, and none of his relatives has come forward to say they know him.” Okechukwu was however said to have been arrested and detained in police custody.
