The struggle over who wins the heart of a 16-year-old salesgirl, identified as Juliana Itoro in Asaba, Delta State, on Wednesday led to a free-for-all fight among rival lovers.

The fight, which started between two rival lovers, saw three mediators (men) seriously injured and taken to the Federal Medical Center (FMC) Asaba, where they are currently receiving treatment, while the two rival lovers were arrested and whisked away by the police from”A” division, Asaba.

Eyewitness, Azuka Eze said the fight broke out in early hours in Asaba when the two rival lovers coincidentally ran into each other to catch a glimpse of a promo show organised by a group of marketers for their products.

Police officers at the A division police station, who spoke to journalists on condition of anonymity, said the two rival lovers allegedly caused a scene after few minutes of verbal cross fire, adding that they fought with dangerous weapons leading to the mediators sustaining injuries in an attempt to separate them from the fight.

The Police Public Relations Officer in Delta State, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, who confirmed that the two rival lovers were later arrested for disturbing the public peace, told newsmen that they were being detained at the A division police station for further investigation.

While assuring that the police will do everything possible to protect lives and properties in the state during the yuletide, DSP Andrew Aniamaka disclosed that the police command has introduced stop and search in strategic and flash points across the state, adding that it will no longer be business as usual for hoodlums, armed robbers including ritualists, fraudsters.

He said, “The police are working hard to ensure the safety of lives and properties in the state, the police have introduced stop and search method with a view to arresting hoodlums, fraudsters and ritualists who have been operating across the state, the police men will operate without uniforms and are positioned in flash point areas”.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Abia, Mr Geoffrey Ogbonna, confirmed the incident on Friday.

“The man is about 20 years old. His name is Chidiebere David. He accompanied his friends to a birthday party in the hotel and got drowned there. That was exactly what happened,’’ he said.

Ogbonna however did not say if the police was foreclosing further investigations into the matter.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the deceased went with his friends who were over 16 in number to the hotel to celebrate the birthday of one of them.

Chidiebere who hailed from Imo died at the pool with no one realising that he had drowned until sometimes later.

NAN further gathered that when the deceased colleagues saw his body inside the pool and made frantic efforts to save him, they discovered that he had died.

The relatives of the young man were said to have later arrived at the scene, taken his body and deposited at a morgue close to the hotel.

An anonymous source within the hotel told NAN that the friends of the deceased were arrested and taken into custody same night by policemen from Aba Area Command.

rape crime

Ikeja Sexual Offence and Domestic Violence Court in Lagos, on Wednesday, sentenced a bricklayer, Edet Imoh, 40, to five years in prison for allegedly raping a commercial sex worker.

The prosecution led by Mrs B.T Boye explaining to the court during the trial that the convict committed the offence on March 11, 2017, at 1.30a.m. at Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.

According to Boye, “The convict met the complainant at Farm City Lekki Phase 1, while he was having his lunch. We exchanged pleasantries and we agreed to have sex afterwards.

Umokoro told me to pay her N50,000 for having sexual intercourse with her but l begged her to collect N40,000 to which she agreed.

” We later took a cab to Awolowo Road at Ikoyi to use my friend’s house but unfortunately he wasn’t around.

“I told Umukoro to go back but she refused and said l must pay her for bringing her out so we had sex somewhere around.

“We laid a wrapper on the floor and had sex after which she demanded the N40,000 but l told her l had only N9,000 but she refused to collect it from me.

“She refused to collect the N9,000 and tried to hold my shirt but l ran away.

Umukoro, a commercial sex worker in her testimony, however, denied the allegations.

She said: “The defendant took me to an agreed place but on getting there, the gateman refused to open the gate saying that the madam of the house was around.

“I told the defendant to call the cabman that brought us to come back and pick us but he refused. Suddenly, the defendant attacked me from behind, tried to strangle me by pressing my neck till l fainted.

“He then raped me and stole my blackberry passport phone and Nokia phone all valued at N131,000.

“On April 6, 2017, l got hold of the defendant at Farm City Lekki Phase 1 and reported him to the police at Maroko Police Station,” Umokoro said.

The convict charged with two counts of rape and theft, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge

According to the prosecution, the offence contravened the provisions of Section 361 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015

Justice Sybil Nwaka, in ruling, sentenced Edet Imoh to five years in prison for allegedly raping the commercial sex worker.

Nwaka, who did not give the convict an option of fine, said the sentence will serve as a deterrent to others.

”I find the defendant guilty of the offence of indecent assault, he is sentenced to five years imprisonment which will commence from the date of sentencing.

” l hope by the time you come out, you would have learnt your lessons to stay away from such act and live happily with your family,” she said.

Nwaka also admonished the complainant, Ejiro Umukoro, 25, to desist from prostitution as it is illegal and that the Lagos State Government was on the move to sanitise the state against such act.

“I, however, chastise the complainant and urge her to be of good behaviour.

“The state is using this opportunity to warn other intending offenders, those in the commercial sex trade and other perpetrators of sex offenders to desist and have a rethink.

“Control yourselves from such offence because Lagos State frowns seriously at such act,” he said.
