Man arrested for raping a 60-year-old woman in Niger
A man identified as Sani Garba 32, has been arrested in Niger State for stealing into a 60-year-old woman’s apartment while she was asleep and raping her.
The suspect committed the offense in the Kuspa area of Suleja Local Government Area of the state, police said.
The 60-year-old reported the assault and the suspect, who lives in the same community was immediately apprehended by the police.
Police spokesman Abiodun Wasiu said the suspect would soon be arraigned in court.
A lawmaker representing Ipokia-Idiroko constituency in the Ogun House of Assembly, Mrs. Sikiratu Ajibola, has prescribed life imprisonment for rapists.
“Enough is enough,” she told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta, Ogun State, yesterday. “We can no longer fold our arms as women; rapists must be taught a lesson in a very hard way.
“This devilish acts, most times, result in psychological trauma to the victims. Some of them even attempt suicide.”
Mrs. Ajibola also expressed disdain over indecent dressing, especially by women and girls.
