An 85-year-old woman has been allegedly raped by a 25-year-old man identified as Ezekiel Yanana.
The incident reportedly happened in Niger State.
The suspect, who has been arrested by the Niger State Police Command pleaded for forgiveness, saying he did not know what came over him.
The Niger State Police Public Relations Officer, Wasiu Abiodun, who confirmed the arrest of the suspect added that the matter would be taken to court soon.
Abiodun explained that the suspect confessed to the crime during interrogation, noting that the victim was rescued by her grandson.
Bittertruth Media gathered that the victim identified as Bitahara Maibago, was sleeping in her room when the suspect entered and threatened to kidnap her.
The suspect, in the process, reportedly had sexual intercourse with the woman until her grandson, one Achidawa, rescued her.
Accepting committing the crime, the suspect said:
“I don’t know what has come over me that each time I see elderly women, I have feelings for them. I have been in the act and I enjoyed doing it, but at times I ask myself why I am into this wicked act. I am finished.”
