I didnt rape her! We are in a relationship.
Were even planning to get married. We have been dating for eight months now. The girls parents know me. Yes, I know shes pregnant for me. I have accepted the pregnancy and Im already taking care of her.
I have started the marriage rites. In fact, the girls parents had been collecting money from me. I have paid N20,000 to them for introduction and to buy drinks. They have also asked me to bring N100,000, out of which I have paid N64,000.
Emmanuel said he was arrested after his supposed father-in-law, called and told him that the girls school authority said the victim was too young for sexual activities, let alone for pregnancy.

The Investigating Police Officer (IPO), Sergeant Mary Ikumo, said that the victims parents claimed not to know or had ever set eyes on Emmanuel.
