A middle-aged man who’s name has been given as Onuora has landed in police custody at the Inland Town Police Division in Onitsha, for allegedly raping a schoolgirl in the Onitsha area of Anambra State.

The Eastern Updates gathered that the suspect was arrested at the Ado Girls Secondary School, Onitsha, by security operatives, who have been trailing him.

A police source told newsmen on Monday that the suspect was in the habit of laying ambush around schools waiting for his victim.

Following the arrest of the suspect, the Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has demanded the immediate remand of the suspected rapist.

The state Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, who disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, said the governor specifically requested the suspected rapist to be remanded at the State Criminal Investigation Department Awka, while an investigation continues on the alleged rape.

“Meanwhile, the suspect has been arrested and detained at the Inland Town Police Division Onitsha.

“Governor Soludo, who frowned on such a terrible and nefarious act of preying on the innocent, vowed to take every legally available means to bring the perpetrator to book in hopes that this will serve as a deterrent to others.

“The governor enjoined the Ndi Anambra to speak up in the face of such abhorrent acts,” the commissioner added.

Meanwhile, efforts to get the state police spokesman, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, for further details, proved abortive as he did not respond to calls and several messages sent to his telephone.

He added that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Aderemi Adeoye, directed that all the suspects indicted in the course of the investigation be arraigned in court without delay once the investigation is concluded.
