Officers attached to the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps have apprehended a man, Paul Ihuaku after he threatened and raped his biological mother in Imo State.
According to reports, Paul who is a native of Umueke Ezagbogu community is forty-five years old and has been living with his mother.
In a statement released by the Imo State Commander of the NSCDC, Paul’s mother reported the incident to youths in their community, after which they planned and held down the suspect until security officers arrived.
He stated, “The men of the command later proceeded to the residence of the suspect and arrested him.
Paul has since confessed to committing the crime, claiming intoxication caused his immoral actions.
He said, “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.
“I was not bewitched. I was under the influence of alcohol.”
Paul further revealed that he was yet to settle down with any lady because he did not have any means to cater for a family yet.
In her reaction to the incidence, Paul’s mother claimed that the last incident was his second time of assaulting her sexually.
She explained, “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 (rape) 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.”
