The NollywoodSocial.Net team stumbled upon a news published on DailyPost NG yesterday (Nov. 22) titled “Nollywood star Stephanie Okereke’s brother arrested for allegedly raping UNILAG undergraduate“; where a 300 level UNILAG female student by the name ‘Arionla’ accused the popular Nollywood actress’ brother (Daniel Okekeke) who also happen to be the cousin of former Director–General of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), Ndi Okereke-Onyiuke, of raping her severely.
According to her, the suspect – Prince Daniel Okereke (age 37), lured her into his home at Mende, Maryland, Lagos, on November 6th, subdued her with the aid of his security guard before pouncing on her and raping her severely.
Interestingly, the 22 year old victim (Arinola) claimed she met the accused (Prince Daniel Okereke) online. Will some women ever hear word? Upon all the dangers and warnings about meeting strangers online – some still chose to risk their lives.
Anyway, below is the victim’s story, an ordeal she narrated to journalists:
“We became friends online and I gave him my number. He kept calling requesting to see me in school and I kept giving him one excuse or the other. He actually said that he wanted me to be his friend and I declined that I am a student and should be allowed to face my studies. On November 6, 2014, he called me that he was in my school compound. I was sick and told him that I was about to head to the pharmacy to get drugs.”
“He volunteered to drive me to the pharmacy. I was impressed and grateful for such a kind gesture. After buying the drugs, we drove to the fast food and bought food. He asked me to join him to a seat out joint where I can relax and eat the food. I was surprised when he drove straight to his house at Mende, Maryland.”
“When we got to his house, I told him that I was not interested in having sex with him, he called two of his security guards to help him to tie me up and seal my mouth. He then brought out his belt and started flogging me. He raped me severally till he was satisfied. He later removed the ropes and ordered me to get out of his house. I was in pains and knew that since the law will finally release him because of his status, I needed to destroy anything within reach. It was the neighbours whose car was destroyed that alerted the police at Area F, Ikeja.”
“I wrote my statement and went to the hospital for examination. I was not surprised when I was told that he was granted bail the same day. My family had to report the matter to Panti and he was re-arrested.”
When Stephanie Okereke’s brother was confronted with the alleged rape report, he did not deny raping the victim but rather blamed the devil for the act. According to DailyPost NG, here’s what Daniel Okereke had to say when confronted:
“I am so ashamed of myself. We are family of professionals whom you know very well. I don’t know what got into my head. I am sorry and plead for forgiveness,” Daniel, who said he was single and still searching, pleaded.
When asked why she destroyed the property in his house, Prince Daniel said: “She thought I was going to force her to have sex with me. She started destroying everything which is so expensive. Yes, I had sex with her. I am very sorry, I need a way out.”
A Police Public Relations Officer by the name ‘Kenneth Nwosu; said the suspect (Prince Daniel Okereke) would be charged to court for rape and assault.
