He, however, said he left the kitchen to his room with Esther and gave her N100 and slept with her after giving her the money.

He said “initially I don’t mean to rape her, but when she slept with me on the bed. I felt aroused and decided to quickly have sexual intercourse with her.

“I did not force her to have sex with me. We were together on the bed, but I have trouble penetrating her despite all my efforts and I had to cover her mouth with a cloth so that she could not raise alarm.”

She was crying, but nobody could hear or come for her help as I have covered her mouth with cloth and she suffocated to death in the process. She died when I was having sex with her.”
