A 57-year-old man arrested by youths in Anambra State has reportedly confessed to defiling minors for over 10 years.
The culprit identified as Chidi Obieze, was arrested on Wednesday over the alleged sexual molestation of a 10-year-old girl.
Obieze was seen in a viral video pleading for leniency, vowing that he was ready to stop the act if he is forgiven and released this time.
The resident of Egbem Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State was reportedly arrested at Oraifite, a neighboring community.
Residents are said to have monitored Obieze closely over a series of criminal acts before he finally met his waterloo.
“I also like grown-up women, but my best are little girls. I have been doing this for about 10 years now,” Daily Post quoted the culprit as saying.
When asked what he was doing with the minor he was seen with the last time, Obieze said, “I was only romancing her when I was caught. I was romancing her with my private part.”
Meanwhile, the state police command is yet to make any official statement about the arrest of the suspect.
