Okorie who was arrested and and interrogated at the Police Command headquarters in Ikeja was paraded with his friend Ogbonna Njoku aka John.
Okorie said he handed Precious over to Njoku's brother- Nzube Chukwu who was based in Libya but didn't know that they were going to sell her into the s#x trade. He said he was told
that Precious could finish her secondary education in Libya then earn money by working at a fuel station and send some of her money back home to help her parents and didn't know anything else other than that.
Okorie said they went to Njoku's house in Alaba, got Njoku's brother's number and was given N10,000.
How wicked can people be? This is so sad,i have a teenage daughter and thinking of this,i will die totally to imagine this happening to her.It makes me so sad to read and write this story this morning.Imagine what this poor girl must have gone through,they have destroyed her life.How does Precious Nwaigwe at 15 recover from this?
A family member sells you into the s#x trade.It is just too sad to imagine.
Precious said on the day she was handed over to her pimp, she noticed Okorie arguing with his friends over money but never knew that the money was the cost of her slavery .
Okorie said he was only given N10,000 by his friend when he told him he was broke, he said they didn't have any discussion about Precious being trafficked for s#x. The Police asked him if he got any consent from Precious's parents before he sent her to Libya but he said he didn't. They further asked him why he didn't tell her parents that he had sent her to Libya when her parents started to look for her if his intentions were innocent, but he said he didn't know why he didn't tell them.
Njoku however said he wasn't involved in the abduction, he said that Okorie, Precious and one of their friends Daniel asked him for his brother's number in Libya, he said he gave them the number and left hence was surprised when he got arrested by the police in regards to this crime. He admitted that he didn't know what happened to Precious until after his arrest.
Okorie said he lied to Precious that he told her mother about your journey to Libya which was apparently a lie. Njoku said he was never told by Njoku that Precious was declared missing by her parents and was innocent of the crime he had been accused of.
Both suspects will be arraigned shortly.
Precious was only allowed to return to Nigeria by the pimp after she had paid off the $6,000 the pimp had supposedly paid to Kelvin Okorie and his goons to buy her.
They just destroyed that poor little girls life,really sad..and this was family? Left to me,people like Kelvin Okorie will be jailed for life,no parole..simple.
