A 20-year-old apprentice, Ebuka Okafor who confessed to sleeping with two underage boys, has been paraded by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
The apprentice who was caught while attempting to sleep with one of underage boys the second time, was nabbed by a vigilante group at Oja-Oshodi area of Akure and he was beaten to a pulp before he was handed over to the NSCDC.
The State Commandant of the NSCDC, Pedro Awili who spoke to newsmen, said the suspect who was almost lynched by the community, was first dragged to the Deji’s palace before he was handed over to the NSCDC for proper investigation.
Okafor was beaten before the Deji of Akure intervened and ordered that the boy be brought to the NSCDC office for interrogation.
“And during our interrogation with him, the boy confessed to the crime, stating that he defiled the two boys aged 12 and 13 years old. He told us this would not be the first time that he would be sleeping with the two boys” An NSCDC officer said.
Okafor who confessed to the crime and stated that he regretted his action, disclosed that he had been sleeping with the two boys for the past two months.
“I have been sleeping with them since August and whenever I have intercourse with them, I always give them N200 each. I have only slept with them three times, and the reason I am sleeping with them is that I don’t have a girlfriend and I always feel lonely in the shop always” he said.
