After making the delivery, he started making enquiry from her about her plan after she might have completed her service year, said she was not too comfortable with his questions because they were in enclosed room.

“He then pulled my trouser from behind, turned my face up and wanted to penetrate into my private part, I was resisting him. He was too heavy for me, I even bite him, yet, he carried on. I shouted on top of my voice but no one could hear me because the room was a bit far from where other members of staff are.
“He penetrated and he poured his semen on my body and pant. When he discovered that I can’t breath very well, he stood and I ran out of the room.
The following day, two of my female corp members discovered I wasn’t playing or relating with them very well, they inquired what happened.
