A 41-year old man has been arrested by the Lagos State Police command on Monday for allegedly raping a 78-year-old woman.
According to Imohimin Edgal, the commissioner of police in the state, the Septuagenarian had asked for directions to a place in Lagos from the suspect. She was said to be going to Ketu when the suspect picked her in his bus.
“Unknown to the woman, the commercial bus driver who had ulterior motive, drove her to Adeniyi Jones in Ikeja where he forcefully had sex with her in spite of her old age. A passer-by, who heard the woman’s shouts for help called the police and pointed them to the direction of the screams and he was caught in the act.
The woman was bleeding while she was rescued from the scene. The suspect is presently in custody and will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded,” the police boss said.
