A 57-year old man, simply identified as Anselm Osagie, has been arrested for having unlawful carnal knowledge with a 98-year old woman. The Nation newspaper has reported:
He was alleged to have committed the offence on January 3rd, 2015. The victim is said to be the mother of the suspect’s landlord.. Anselm, who denied the allegation, said a co-tenant who saw the old woman sitting on his bed while he laid down raised the alarm. He said the old woman has been coming to his room since October last year.
The suspect, who was paraded alongside 43 other suspects, said he was beaten and accused of making love to an old woman before the police arrested him. Also paraded was one Famous Aibangbe who defiled a 50-year old woman inside a bush at Upper Sakponba. A fake journalist, who posed as a reporter with the Voice of America and Voice of Germany, Yakubu Farouk, was also paraded. He was arrested after interviewing the head of Hausa community in the state.
Farouk said he studied mass communication at the Benue State Polytechnic and was earlier sacked for embezzling N300,000 belonging to his former employer. Police Commissioner, Foluso Adebanjo, said the suspects would soon be charged to court. Adebanjo, who is heading to the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, said his two-year stewardship in the state has witnessed adequate policing across the state.
