The girl then left the house to school where she was doing form 2.
In June at around 6am Chizu called the girl to his house and asked to be intimate with her again but she refused.
The girl did not go to school on the day and her stepmother later asked her where she was all along. She said she was at her school mate’s place of residence.
The stepmother asked the girl’s schoolmate who denied that she was with the girl.
The girl told her sister that she was at Chizu’s house and she had se_x with him.
The matter was reported to the police leading to Chizu’s arrest.
