She Tempted Me By Forcing Herself On Me, Says 58-Year-Old Who Had Sex With 10-Year-Old

​A 58-year-old man, Timothy Onyeukwu, a tricycle rider in Abia State, has been arrested by policemen from Central Police Station, Aba in Abia State Police Command, for turning a 10-year-old girl into another tricycle that he could ride unchallenged, as he was caught during an alleged attempt to have sex with the girl in a hotel in the commercial city.

Crime Reports however learnt that it was not the first attempt by the suspect, as he had slept with the girl before his arrest. His method, it was further learnt, was to entice the girl with money and food.

Speaking with Crime Reports on the arrest of the elderly suspect, the state Commissioner of Police, Leye Oyebade, said police from Central Police Station were alerted by members of the public who saw when the suspect was taking the girl inside a room in a hotel.

“From the information gathered, the suspect, Onyeukwu, was having unlawful carnal knowledge of one female of about 10 years old in a hotel. This made the operatives of the Central Police Station, Aba, swing into action, and he was arrested while the girl has been taken to hospital for medical attention.”

A reliable source who spoke with Crime Reports disclosed that the girl used to go to the park where Onyeukwu operated his tricycle to sell sachet water. “He started giving her gifts like N20, N50 to eat. That was how he got her attracted to him.”

In an interview with Crime Reports on what led to his arrest, Onyeukwu, said: “There was a girl who used to sell sachet water. I had sex with her and I was arrested. But I was not the first man in her life because I had easy penetration into her and she also told me that she had a male friend.

“We had sex once in November within a school premises close to her residence. I stood behind her and asked her to bend. I penetrated her from behind. After we finished, I gave her N200. The second time, I decided to take her to a brothel for ‘short time’. I paid N500 for the room for an hour.

“I took the girl there in my tricycle. But some women who saw her following me to the room started beating her, saying that she was too young for what she was doing.”

The suspect disclosed that though he was once married, he had separated from his wife, while the only child she had for him was dead.

He added that though he knew the girl was not up to 18 years of age, he believed she was older than 10.

He added that the girl was just developing breasts but actually tempted him by throwing herself at him.

He narrated how he met the victim: “I was repairing my tricycle when she came and sat in it. She asked me to buy her food as she was hungry. She also asked for ice cream and I bought them for her. She came back again and asked me to give her money to carry a bag of sachet water to sell.

“As she was talking with me, she saw another man and said that he should wait for her so that they would walk together. I told her she was too small and would not know anything about a man, but she quickly replied that my statement was not true. She said she was not a novice in the area I spoke about and she had been doing ‘it’ for some time.

“That was how it started and I can only say that it was temptation. Since my wife left two years ago, I have not slept with any woman.

Oyebade said that the suspect would be arraigned in court after the conclusion of investigations.

The school serves the children of Western embassy personnel from Canada, Britain, and the US.

Russia’s foreign ministry on Friday denied it moved to close the school.

Russia also ordered the closing of a US embassy vacation house, located about 16 kilometers west of Moscow, CNN reported.

A spokeswoman for Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, hinted at the response Russia would take in an earlier statement, saying US actions against Russian diplomats in the US would receive a similar response that she said would “immediately backfire at US diplomats in Russia.”

“The outgoing US administration has not given up on its hope of dealing one last blow to relations with Russia, which it has already destroyed,” her statement said.

The Kremlin earlier said the US would “receive an answer” if it took new punitive actions against Russia. The Obama administration indicated previously that it would hold Russia accountable for cyberattacks that US intelligence agencies have said were designed to interfere with the US election.

On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he would not expel US diplomats in retaliation for the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the US.

Why Ladies Must Stop Doing These 3 Things Now 

How will someone who knows life is about ups and downs believe he or she wants to have it good all the time? 

The above question goes especially to ladies who throw away the opportunity that comes to them just because of wrong pieces of advice from those they call their best friends. 

Crying lady
A lady weeping after she threw away her opportunity based on wrong advice

A good number of ladies are fun of taking to wrong counsel from friends who also want the same thing they want. What does this mean? It is basically about thinking of settling down with a lady’s dream man that the unsuspecting ladies fall prey to their predator friends. The predator friends come from nowhere to snatch their man and at the end of the day marry the man in question. 
The three main mistakes are given below 

1. Lack of contentment 

There is a popular line in a nursery school rhyme which goes thus, “I am content with what I have, little be it or more,… ”

The above rhyme is instructive for ladies who are not satisfied with the responsible men in their lives. They want the perfect guy whereby they themselves lack so many qualities. At the end of the day, their situation becomes, “grab all, lose all. ”

2. Putting the fried meat in care of the hungry cat 

The meaning of this is when a lady tells her so called best friend everything about her man. 

These types of ladies make themselves vulnerable. The friends they seek advice from is a hungry cat who needs a man badly in her life too. Since the desperate friend also wants to settle down, she plays a fast one by snatching the guy. 

It is not a sensible thing for ladies to divulge vital things about their man to their friends in order to prevent themselves from falling into the trap of men snatchers. 

3. Lack of defined focus 

A lady who lacks where she wants to move to might continue to beat around the bush. Every lady should have a set of goals for herself and plan about how to go about them. This is also based on plans for a happy marriage life and the future.
