A 45 year-old man from Umueke Ezagbogu, Ezinihitte Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State, Paul Ihuaka has confessed that he was under the influence of alcohol when he raped his mother.
He made this confession while in the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) custody after he was handed over by the youth in the community after his mother reported the incident to them.
According to reports, the incident took place in the house the suspect is living in with his mother.
“I was not bewitched. I 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.”
When asked if he was married, the suspect said he did not have the means yet, as he was not doing anything tangible.
It was also gathered that the mother (name withheld) confessed that the incident was the second time.
She said, “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.
