The police in the United Kingdom have arrested a Nigerian student, Cyril Kenneth, for allegedly attempting to sexually harass minors.
NIGERIACRIME gathered that the suspect arrived in the UK barely three months ago.
The incident reportedly happened in the Belfast province of the UK.
Additionally, the police in UK accused Kenneth of grooming and sexually harassing the young girls.
The suspect confessed to chatting with children between the ages of 14 and 15, in a viral video.
Confessing, Kenneth said, “We chat, I asked if they liked me, and I asked about their age. They told me 14. They are just two, and we began talking after I got here because I was bored and new to the country.
“I always asked if their mothers were at home to be sure of the kind of messages I sent to them.”
Kenneth also sent his unsolicited indecent pictures, asking some of them for their house addresses. He had invited one of them to his house for sex, among other disturbing messages.
The suspect, however, blamed the devil for tempting him and pleaded for mercy, and promised to desist from such acts.
