The accused had met his victim via an escort girl site.

The latter, barely 18, had registered two months earlier.

Okito had arranged to meet him near where he was staying, with a pastor in Villiers-le-Bâcle.

Arriving at the meeting place, in front of an unlit housing estate, facing fields, the victim confided not to have felt comfortable.

But the accused grabs her arm and then takes out a knife, placed under the young woman's throat, leading her into the fields.

Confessions, then a denial of the facts

He forces her to give him a fellatio, before searching her bag, taking pictures of various documents, including her identity card, and threatens to attack her or her family if she denounces him. He finally asks her to prostitute himself for him, before letting her go. The victim immediately contacts her best friend and her boyfriend to tell them what just happened to her. But, out of “shame”, and not wishing that her family would find out, she gave up filing a complaint.

Her boyfriend tries to get in touch, via social media, with Okito. Then, on November 7, 2018, he ran into him by chance at Juvisy station and warned the victim's father. The two men force him to get into their car, before driving him to the Juvisy police station. In police custody, Okito confesses. Confession repeated a few days later before a judge. A few months later, he recanted saying that he had been forced to confess due to pressure from the victim's family, who he said was linked to the police officer who questioned him. What the investigation of the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN) denied.
