It was gathered that the suspect identified as Casmir Eze from Umugoji Orba in Udenu local Government Area of Enugu had on Sunday at about 2am gained entrance to the compound of the victim identified as Marcillus Ogechi by scaling through the fence and thereafter forced the victim to open the door.
He threatened her to open the door or risk being killed should she fail.

According to him, “I don’t know what came over me although, I have been targeting how to get the girl since and no way hence I had to come through this way.”
