A 32-year-old man, Sani Garba, paraded by the Niger State Police Command for allegedly raping a 60-year-old woman, has pleaded for forgiveness, saying he was attracted by her ‘shaking buttocks.’
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Wasiu Abiodun, said on Friday that the suspect was arrested by operatives attached to ‘B’ Division, Suleja, adding that he would be arraigned in court after investigations into the matter are completed.
The suspect was said to have criminally trespassed into the elderly woman’s house on July 18 around 4:30 pm and allegedly raped her.
Speaking to newsmen, Garba revealed that he enjoyed having sex with old women within his vicinity because he had no money to maintain a girlfriend.
He added that he had forcefully had sex with more than three elderly women in the community. He described his arrest as unfortunate, noting he regretted involving himself in what he called “nonsense”.
“Since I didn’t have money to maintain a girlfriend, I resorted to having sex with old women in my area and I enjoyed doing it. At times I would ask myself ‘why am I into this nonsense?’ It is quite unfortunate that I found myself in this situation,” he said.
