An operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been accused of impregnating a teenage girl and beating her to a pulp after she refused to abort the pregnancy.
The victim, Blessing Nwokpa(pictured) was working in a canteen around the anti-graft commission Ikoyi office, and was also sleeping there owing to accommodation problem when her lover(name withheld and pictured EFCC’s chairman) reportedly offered to give her shelter, according to the report by Vanguard website.
The 19-year-old in the report said: “I was staying with my brother when I left Enugu for Lagos. He found the canteen job for me.
“At a point he had accommodation problem and I was sleeping in the canteen when the EFCC man said I could be sleeping in his house until my brother get another apartment.
“I accepted without thinking of the impossible. But at night he would lure me into having sex with him until I became pregnant without knowing.
“When I eventually discovered I was pregnant, I told him and his attitude towards me changed. He gave me N18,000 to abort the pregnancy but I refused. When he discovered I was still keeping the pregnancy, he started beating me and threw my things out of his apartment.
“He beat me to a pulp when I went to his office to request for money for ante-natal. Some of his senior colleagues rescued me,” adding that she was sacked at the canteen because of her pregnancy.
