Operatives of the Niger state police command have arrested a 25- year- old man, Ezekiel Yunana, for raping an 85- year- old grandmother in Rafi local government area in the state.

The victim who reported the case at the Kagara police division, said she was inside her house sleeping when the suspect broke into her room through the window and then raped her. She explained that Ezekiel had threatened to kidnap her, asking her to pay a large sum of money, which she told him she didn’t have. The aged woman said Ezekiel raped her for a long time before her grandson came around and rescued her.

When interrogated, Ezekiel confessed to committing the crime. He said he resorted to raping the old woman since she did not have any money to give him.

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, ASP Abiodun Wasiu, said the suspect has confessed to committing the crime and that he will be arraigned in court soon.
