Officers of the Niger State Police Command arrested a 25-year-old man, Ezekiel Yunana, for raping a 85-year-old grandmother in the state of Rafi’s local government.
The victim, who reported the case to the Kagara police department, said she was sleeping in her home when a suspect broke into her room through a window and then raped her. She explained that Ezekiel had threatened her kidnapping, asking her to pay a large sum of money, which she told him that he was gone. An older woman said that Ezekiel raped her for a long time before her grandson came and saved her.
During the interrogation, Ezekiel confessed to committing a crime. He said he had resorted to raping an old woman because she had no money to give him.
A spokesman for the state police headquarters, ASP Abiodun Vasiu, confirming the incident, said that the suspect confessed the crime and that he would soon be brought to justice.
