Stephanie Okereke’s Cousin Reportedly Arrested For Rape


Prince Daniel Okereke with the aid of his security
guards raped the victim several times before kicking her
out of his house.
A cousin of Nollywood actress, Stephanie Okereke has
been reportedly arrested for raping a 300 Level female
student of the University of Lagos. The student named
Arionla alleged that Prince Daniel Okereke raped her at
his Mende home on Thursday, November 6.
Arionla, 22, told Sun that she and Prince Daniel became
friends after meeting through an online dating website.
“We became friends online and I gave him my number.
He kept calling, requesting to see me in school and I
kept giving him one excuse or the other. He actually
said that he wanted me to be his friend and I declined
that I am a student and should be allowed to face my
studies,” Arinola told Sun.
On that fateful day, Arionla said Prince Daniel called to
inform her that he was in the school premises. Arionla
said she told Prince that she was sick and he
volunteered to drive her to the pharmacy to get drugs,
a gesture that got her impressed. After buying the
drugs, they drove to a fast food joint to grab a meal,
but Prince Daniel asked her to join him to a sit out joint
where she could relax to eat her meal only to drive her
to his house in Mende, Maryland.
According to what Arionla told Sun, the suspect, Prince
Daniel Okereke, lured her into his home and subdued
her with the aid of his security guard before pouncing
on her and raping her severely.
“When we got to his house, I told him that I was not
interested in having sex with him, he called two of his
security guards to help him to tie me up and seal my
mouth. He then brought out his belt and started
flogging me,” Arionla narrated to Sun.
After several rape sessions which lasted for more than
30 minutes, Arionla revealed that Prince Daniel ordered
her to pick her bags and get out of the house. Angry
and bitter about her ordeal, Arionla said she started
destroying the properties in his house.
According to the report, angry neighbours of Prince
Daniel who were not aware of what led to her
destroying properties in the compound including a car,
called the police from the Area F, Ikeja who arrested
her for assault. With her statement to the police
coupled with the bruises on her boy as evidence, a case
of attempted rape was established and Prince Daniel
was arrested but later released on bail while Arinola
was admitted to the Lagos State University Teaching
Suspecting that the case might be swept under the
carpet due to Prince Daniel’s connections- he is also
the cousin of former DG of the Nigerian Stock
Exchange, Ndi Okereke-Onyuike- Arinola and her family
reported the case to the State Criminal Investigation
Department (SCID) Panti who rearrested Prince Daniel
According to the Sun report, 37-year old Prince Daniel
Okereke has admitted to the crime and blamed the devil
for the act.
“I am so ashamed of myself. We are family of
professionals whom you know very well. I don’t know
what got into my head. I am sorry and plead for forgive­
ness,” Daniel pleaded.
Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police
Command, Kenneth Nwosu , has confirmed the case and
also revealed that the autopsy report from the Lagos
State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, established
that there was an actual penetration in the course of
the scuffle.
Prince Daniel alongside one his security men, Idris
Abubakar, who aided him in the rape crime have also
been arraigned before a Yaba Chief Magistrate’s Court .
They were hit with a five count charge bordering on
conspiracy, assault, rape and threat to life.
Magistrate Y. O Aje-Afunwa has adjourned the case till
Friday, January, 9, 2015.
