allegedly forced her into prostitution and also made her his sex slave
since she was 17-year-old.
The lady, who argued that she was strongly under a spell cast on her by

for money, he also forced her to drink his semen after having sex with

“He said that if I allowed any man to have sex with me without condom, I
would die! He said, he alone, had the right to have sex with me without
condom. He said that any day I divulged what took place between us, I
The Abia State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Leye Oyebade said:
“Nwokocha, who resides at 24 Nkume Street Aba, was arrested on January
20, by policemen attached to Ndiegoro for abducting his victim.
Nwokocha, sometimes in 2010, abducted the victim from Awo Idemili in
Orsu Local Government Area of Imo State.
The suspect with others at large dispossessed the victim of her
belongings and subjected her to prostitution in different hotels all
over the country.
They collected the proceed for their personal use.
The victim was said to have fallen into the trap of Nwokocha while
travelling from Lagos State to Bayelsa State. When she got to Yenagoa,
the state capital, it was late. She boarded a taxi, unaware the driver
and passengers were abductors.
She became alarmed, when the cab diverted into a bush. Sensing danger,
she started screaming for help. It was at that point, that one the
passengers, Nwokocha, told her not to be scared, that he would help. He
promised that nothing would happen to her.
The victim narrated:
“He told me that God sent him to come and use me for a missionary work.
He reassured me he came to assist me; he said I shouldn’t cry or be
afraid. He also told me that he was led by God to tell me that I had the
gift of prophecy, which I should use to serve God. He said I was going
to make money.
He said he would keep the money for me and use it to open a church for
me. He brought out N1000 from his wallet and made me take an oath that
whatever I did with him, would remain a secret between us.”
The lady further narrated:
“He told me that any money I got would be kept for me in a special
account. He said he was a foreigner, not a Nigerian. I was forced to
take an oath with him in that taxi. After the incident, he allowed me to
go to my sister’s house that night, but I couldn’t tell my sister what
happened because of the oath.
He warned that anytime I divulged the incident to anyone, I would vomit
blood and die. I repeated the same pronouncement on him.” According to
her, when her sister relocated to Lagos, leaving her to mind her shop,
Nwokocha suddenly had unfettered access to her.
He allegedly ordered her to start attending clubs and to have sex with
men for money. She said that all the money she made having sex with men,
was handed over to Nwokocha. One day, she complained that she was sick
and tired of the clubs, she wanted to quit.
But Nwokocha allegedly started taking her to hotels himself, where he
arranged for men to have sex with her. She said: “When the clubs became
too challenging for me, I told him I couldn’t continue because I might
get killed. It entailed going home with some of the men. He started
taking me to hotels.
I was in SS2 and only 17 years when all these started. Today, I’m 25
years old. I stopped going to school and forgot that I had parents or
relatives. I now know that I was under a spell. In those eight years, he
was also having sex with me.” She victim insisted that she started
gradually coming to her senses and became fed up with everything that
was happening to her.
She got up one day and walked straight to the nearest police station, to
lodge a complaint against Nwokocha. Police stepped into the human
trafficking matter and asked Nwokocha to produce any money the victim
had made so far from prostitution, he couldn’t. Nwokocha’s version of
the story was not coordinated. He said he had known the girl before the
taxi incident, and even wanted her to be his girlfriend but she refused.
He said: “She said I was short and dark complexioned. She said she
wanted to marry a man that is tall and fair in complexion like her.”
Asked if he ever coerced the victim into taking an oath with him, he
couldn’t coherently respond.
