The victim, whose name is not mentioned due to the sensitivity of the case, said “I called the “Keke NAPEP” man to carry me towards where I can get a taxi to Sapele Road.
“We agreed, and he took me only for me to see him with çutlass, insisting that he must sleep with me or have me killed.
“I have no choice than to surrender quickly. He slept with me in the bush, which has an uncompleted building".
