One Paul Ihuaku has been arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSDC in Imo State Command, for allegedly raping his mother.
Punch reports that the 45-year-old from Umueke Ezagbogu in the Ezinihitte Mbaise Local Government Area of the state confessed to the crime saying that he was under the influence of alcohol.
Speaking about the shocking incident, the State Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr Raji Ibrahim, said the suspect was arrested by the operatives of the corps following a tip-off after his mother reported the case to community youths.
The suspect said:
“After drinking on that fateful evening, there was a heavy downpour and I could not resist the urge for s3x; so, I had to use a local pistol to threaten my mother to submission and I later rap3d her.
“I was not bewitched. I was under the influence of alcohol,” he added.
The mother also narrated that: “I was in the kitchen and saw him (Ihuaku) with a pistol. He used it to threaten me.
“He told me that he would kill me. I could not do anything other than to beg him to drop the gun. It was in the process that he threw me on the ground and it happened.
“I had to call on the youth the next morning, as the incident happened when it was already dark and damp. The youth later went to the NSCDC headquarters in Itu to report him, hence his arrest,” she added.
