A 20-year-old sales boy, Ebuka Okafor has been arrested by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Ondo State Command over alleged sodomy with two young boys.
The state commandant of the NSCDC, Pedro Awili made the disclosure while parading the suspect at the state headquarters of the corps in Akure.
Awili confirmed that Okafor was nabbed by vigilante group at the Oja-Oshodi area of Akure, the state capital.
He further added that the suspect who was caught sexually molesting two young boys of 12 and 13-years-old had earlier been taken to the palace of Deji of Akure, Oba Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo, where he was later handed over to command for investigations.
“Okafor was almost beaten to death before the Deji of Akure intervened and ordered that he should be handed over to the command.
“He has confessed to the crime. He told us he defiled the two young boys of 12 and 13-year-old.
“This is not the first time he has been sleeping with the two boys who have also attested to the ignoble act of Okafor,” Awili said.
The commandant, however, called on parents and guardians to always endeavour to keep tabs on their wards and know the kind of friends they keep.
The suspect who confessed to have committed the crime revealed that he had been sleeping with the two boys since the past two months.
“I have been sleeping with them since August and whenever i have intercourse with them i always giving them N200 each. And i only slept with them three times.
“The reason why I am sleeping them is that I don’t have a girlfriend and I feel lonely in the shop always,” he stated.
