Anambra: Man Arraigned For Applying Pepper To 17-year-old’s Private Part, Remanded In Police Custody

A 35-year-old man, Odili Chukwuka, on Wednesday appeared before the Children and Sexual Offences Court sitting in Amawbia, Anambra State for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl.

The accused, who hails from Aguluezechukwu in Aguata Local Government Area (LGA), Anambra State, is facing a nine-count charge of sexual abuse, unlawful assault, stealing and infliction of physical injury.

He pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to him.

The Prosecutor, Inspector Anayo Nwano, told the court that the offences 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.
