A 49- year- old football coach, Frank Darlington Anyanwu, has narrated how he had serially raped teenage footballers who are under his tutelage.
Anyanwu who is the Executive Manager, Soccer Warrior Academy, in Lagos, disclosed that he could not explain the reason for his attraction to innocent young children.
The coach who was paraded by the police, said: “I tried to stop this evil habit in July last year but could not as the lust kept coming on each time I want to drop it.”
The coach who is an indigene of Imo State, revealed that he normally lures the innocent children to a quiet place before having anal sex with them.
According to him, the children in his academy are drawn from Primary to Junior Secondary Schools and that he used to charge them N3000 per person in order to tutor them on how to play football.
He appealed to the police to forgive him as he has decided to stop the evil act and that he has brought back his to Lagos from the village.
“I beg the police to forgive me because I have decided to stop such satanic act because I have brought back my wife to stay with me. I sent her home because of poor financial status.
“I have been doing this evil for some years now. I have no attraction for doing that but it appears I am cursed,” he lamented.
He regretted that one of the boys he had sex with told his parents about the incident. “One day I went to the home of one of my victims to inquire why he was not forth coming but the mother alerted the police for my arrest,” he said.
Speaking on the issue, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Mr Fatai Owoseni, said the coach allegedly had intercourse with pupils he was coaching and that he was arrested through credible intelligence.
