Nigerian police in Imo state are currently dealing with a very strange case involving a 45-year-old man identified as Paul Ihuaka.
Ihuaku, who comes from Umueke Ezagbogu in the Ezinihitte Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State Nigeria, was arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) for allegedly raping his own mother. He stays with his mother in the same house.
According to Saharareporters and Punchng, the suspect confessed to the crime, adding that he was under the influence of alcohol,
“After drinking on that fateful evening, there was a heavy downpour and I could not resist the urge for sex; so, I had to use a local pistol to threaten my mother to submission and I later raped her,” Ihuaku stated.
Asked if he was married, Ihuaku answered no, stating he did not have the means yet.
“I was not bewitched. I was under the influence of alcohol,” he added.
The mother (name withheld) reportedly admitted that the incident happened, and it was a second time.
She said, “I was in the kitchen and saw him (Ihuaku) with a gun. 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 (rape) happened.
“I had to call on the youths 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.”
