VOICE AIR MEDIA confirmed that the girl reported the incident to her parent while the accused was arrested after which a test was conducted on the victim where it was detected that the teenager has been infected with Hepatitis B.

Kingsley who testified for himself at the Court during the trial denied raping the girl while four witnesses testified against him.
