Iliya Musa, 32, is accused of raping a 75-year-old grandmother to death in Adamawa State, according to SaharaReporters.
The event occurred last Saturday in the Maduguva hamlet of the Mubi North Local Government Area, according to SaharaReporters.
According to Samuel Adamu, the raped victim’s son, “Last Saturday around 8 p.m., a rapist came to my mother’s house and raped her to death.”
“When our next-door neighbor, Esther Thomas, heard my mother yelling, she came over and summoned my older brother, Yohanna Adamu, who caught him in the act.”
Iliya Musa, who has confessed to the crime, told SaharaReporters that he was under the influence of alcohol.
“I was returning from a wedding ceremony in the night when I heard the grandmother sobbing in her room. I went in and in the twinkling of an eye, I found myself on top of her,” Musa said.
The spokesperson for the state police command, DSP Sulaiman Ngoruje, also confirmed the incident, saying, “The suspect has been arrested and will be charged to court after investigation.”
