Dec 10, 2014 – Arinola, Unilag Student Allegedly Raped By Nollywood Actress Stephanie Okereke’s Brother, Daniel Speaks Up
Few hours ago, the elder brother of Nollywood actress Stephanie Okereke’s brother, Daniel released a statement debunking the rape story that started from a University of Lagos student identified as Arinola.
22-year-old Arinola on the other hand has narrated her ordeal to Daily Sun in an exclusive interview conducted last weekend.
Read Arinola’s own side of the rape saga;
“I met Daniel Okerereke through an online dating site, early last month. “We became friends online and I gave him my number. He kept calling requesting to see me in school and I kept giving him one excuse or the other. He actually said that he wanted me to be his friend and I declined that I am a student and should be allowed to face my studies.
“On November 6, 2014, he called me that he was in my school compound. I was sick and told him that I was about to head to the pharmacy to get drugs. He volunteered to drive me to the pharmacy. I was impressed and grateful for such a kind gesture. After buying the drugs, we drove to the fast food and bought food. He asked me to join him to a seat out joint where I can relax and eat the food. I was surprised when he drove straight to his house at Mende, Maryland.”
“When we got to his house, I told him that I was not interested in having sex with him, he called two of his security guards to help him to tie me up and seal my mouth. He then brought out his belt and started flogging me
He said that I will be the one to the bear the shame since the world will ask what I was doing in his house when I was supposed to be in school,” Arinola narrated.
“When it dawned on her that the Daniel Okereke is a beast in sheep’s clothing, Arionla stopped struggling and parted her legs for the Prince. “He raped me severally till he was satisfied. He later removed the ropes and ordered me to get out of his house. I was in pains and knew that since the law will finally release him because of his sta¬tus, I needed to destroy anything within reach. It was the neighbours whose car was destroyed that alerted the police at Area F, Ikeja.
“I wrote my statement and went to the hospital for examination. I was not surprised when I was told that he was granted bail the same day. My family had to report the matter to Panti and he was re-arrested.”
Read Daniel Okereke’s confession on the day of his arrest;
“I am so ashamed of myself. We are family of professionals whom you know very well. I don’t know what got into my head. I am sorry and plead for forgive¬ness,”
“She thought I was going to force her to have sex with me. She started destroying everything which is so expensive,”
“Yes, I slept with her. I am very sorry, I need a way out.”
Confirming the story as at press time , Police Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Nwosu said that the suspect would be charged to court for rape and assault.
The matter was adjourned till January 9, 2015 for trial.
