A Nigerian student has been arrested and charged in Kenya for allegedly raping a fellow Nigerian student who is a beauty queen.
A Nigerian man identified as Daniel Anthony Daberechukwu, has been arrested and arraigned in a Kenyan court for allegedly raping a 19-year-old campus beauty queen and fellow Nigerian, Nneka Enyantu Obi.
The Herald reports that Obi who is Miss United States International University-Africa (USIU), and Daberechukwu who are both students, had met at a friend’s birthday bash at Thika Road Mall on March 19, 2017, and became friends.
Police prosecutors allege that all the friends attending the party were drinking alcohol and enjoying the music until 11 pm when they switched clubs around the campus. At about 1.30 am, the beauty queen and the suspect left for the hostel and he offered to escort her to her room since she was too drunk.
The court heard that along the corridors, Daberechukwu allegedly began kissing Obi and instead of taking her to her room, he took her to his own room where he took advantage of her drunken state and had sexual intercourse with her without her consent.
Obi was said to have woken up the next day to find herself on his bed, while Daberechuckwu was on the floor. It wasn’t until she reached her room that she realized her underwear was missing and her privates were in pain. and promptly reported the case to the police.
However, the accused has denied raping the victim, saying they had consensual sex in the night. After hearing his denial, the accused was released on a bail bond of Sh500,000 and ordered to deposit his passport in court while the matter will come for hearing on June 9, 2017.
