Omuruyi added that the sister immediately alerted their mother, who called out the girl’s name but she did not respond. The mother raised alarm and Nwanne was apprehended by neighbours, who dragged him to the Oba Market Police Station in Benin.
The prosecutor said that during interrogation the convict confessed to the crime.
