Court Apprehends Man For Allegedly Inserting Pepper Into 17-year-old Private Part In Anambra
A middle-aged man has been arraigned in court for allegedly applying pepper to a 17-year-old private part in Anambra State.
Odili Chukwuka, 35, who hails from Aguluezechukwu in Aguata, Anambra State, was presented on Wednesday, September 7, before the Children and Sexual Court sitting in the State.
He pleaded not guilty after he was presented with a nine-count charge of sexual abuse, unlawful assault, stealing, and infliction of physical injury.
The prosecutor, Inspector Anayo Nwano, told the court that the offenses were committed on July 28 at Aguluezechukwu.
“The accused and others at large sexually abused a 17-year-old girl by touching and applying pepper to her private part.
He emotionally abused her and unlawfully assaulted her by stripping her naked, tying her hands and legs, flogging her to stupor with peppered cane and inflicting injuries on her body.
He also deprived her of her liberty and stole her phone with bag containing unidentified sum of money” he said.
Chief Magistrate Genevieve Osakwe ordered that the accused be remanded in police custody and adjourned the case until September 21.
