According to Reports, Prince Daniel Okereke with the aid of his security guards raped the victim several times before k!cking her out of his house.

“A cousin of Nollywood actress, Stephanie Okereke has been reportedly arrested for raping a 300 Level female student of the University of Lagos. The student named Arionla alleged that Prince Daniel Okereke raped her at his Mende home on Thursday, November 6.

Arionla, 22, told Sun that she and Prince Daniel became friends after meeting through an online dating website.

“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,” Arinola told Sun.

On that fateful day, Arionla said Prince Daniel called to inform her that he was in the school premises. Arionla said she told Prince that she was s!ck and he volunteered to drive her to the pharmacy to get drugs, a gesture that got her impressed. After buying the drugs, they drove to a fast food joint to grab a meal, but Prince Daniel asked her to join him to a sit out joint where she could relax to eat her meal only to drive her to his house in Mende, Maryland.

According to what Arionla told Sun,  the suspect, Prince Daniel Okereke, lured her into his home and subdued her with the aid of his security guard before pouncing on her and raping her severely.

“When we got to his house, I told him that I was not interested in having se.x 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,” Arionla narrated to Sun.

After several rape sessions which lasted for more than 30 minutes, Arionla revealed that Prince Daniel ordered her to p!ck her bags and get out of the house. Angry and bitter about her ordeal, Arionla said she started destroying the properties in his house.

According to the report,  angry neighbours of Prince Daniel who were not aware of what led to her destroying properties in the compound including a car, called the police from the Area F, Ikeja who arrested her for assault. With her statement to the police coupled with the bruises on her boy as evidence, a case of attempted rape was established and Prince Daniel was arrested but later released on bail while Arinola was admitted to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.

Suspecting that the case might be swept under the carpet due to Prince Daniel’s connections- he is also the cousin of former DG of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, Ndi Okereke-Onyuike- Arinola and her family reported the case to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) Panti who rearrested Prince Daniel Okereke.

According to the Sun report, 37-year old Prince Daniel Okereke has admitted to the crime and blamed the devil for the act.

“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 pleaded.

Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, Kenneth Nwosu, has confirmed the case and also revealed that the autopsy report from the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, established that there was an actual penetration in the course of the scuffle.

Prince Daniel alongside one his security men, Idris Abubakar, who aided him in the rape crime have also been arraigned before a Yaba Chief Magistrate’s Court. They were hit with a five count charge bordering on conspiracy, assault, rape and threat to life.

Magistrate Y. O Aje-Afunwa has adjourned the case till Friday, January, 9, 2015.”
