A 17 year old boy identified as Peter Momoh, has been arrested by the police in Etsako, Edo State, for allegedly raping a nursing mother.
The incident occurred on Thursday at Agenebode, in Estako East council Area of the state where both Momoh and his victim resides.
A close source told our correspondent that victim, who gave birth through a Caesarian operation three months ago, was raped in her mother,s house.
According to the source, immediately Momoh, gained access into the lonely house through the window, he grabbed the baby from the mother and threatened to kill him if the mother refuses to succumb to him.
For fear of uncertainty, the victim succumbed to the threat, but after the rapist had disappeared she yelled for help.
However, the victim, who craved anonymity, said “I was sleeping when I heard a noise, the boy shone light on my face, took my baby and turned him upside down. I begged him but he insisted I should allow him and to save my baby I agreed.”
Our correspondent gathered that it was a loud cry from the victim after the unholy act that attracted neighbours who used footprint of the rapist to trace him to his apartment.
He was trying to get into his room when angry community youths descended on him.
The source said the playboy was beaten to stupor before he was handed over to the police.
When newsmen interrogated the rapist, he admitted committing the nefarious act, saying he went to the victims apartment at about 4am to perpetrate the evil act.
When contacted, the Edo state police public Relations Officer PPRO, Uwoh Noble, confirmed the report, saying further investigations into the matter were still ongoing.
