The 49-year-old coach, allegedly lured the young players to his house under the guise of seeking their assistance in some house chores.
The suspect was arrested on Thursday in Agege area, when two among several of his victims he had molested, reported their experience to their parents.
Mr. Darlington confirmed and confessed to the allegations saying he has been making love to some of these boys for over a year now and has lost count of their numbers.
The suspect said whenever he felt the sexual urge, he would lure the boys to assist him with some house chores, and made love to them through the front and their anus.
According to him, he usually got fascinated with the boys whenever he remembered his wife, because it is not easy staying alone without a woman.
Darlington, however, says it’s not every time he sleeps with some of the boys as he sometimes just romances them to relieve himself of the feelings for his wife.
Moreso, he claims that after pondering on his lifestyle, he decided to stop the habit and doesn’t force the boys to make love with them.
One of the victims who disclosed that the coach had slept with him five times said;
“The very first time he made love to me was when I went to assist him to fetch water. I was about to leave his house when he ordered me to lie on his bed that we are about to do some exercise.
To my surprise, he asked me to undress; before I knew what was happening, he had climbed on me and then turned me around and made straight for my anus with his manhood. After that incident, he threatened to kill me if I report to anybody about what transpired between us.”
