The Niger State Police Command have arrested a 21-year-old man, Haruna Musa, after he was caught trying to have sex with a mentally-ill woman at Angwan Gwari Kwamba in Suleja Local Government Area (LGA) of Niger State.
Musa claimed he has not penetrated the woman, before her screams alerted people.
Upon his arrest by security agents earlier this week, wraps of substance believed to be Indian hemp, was reportedly found on him.
He blamed his action on drunkenness and a curse from his village, but said the woman’s nakedness attracted him to her.
According to him, he sighted the woman’s sexual organs while she laid down and couldn’t control himself.
He said, “If not for the security men, maybe I would have had sex with her. I don’t know what came over me. Please forgive me. I am just 21 years. I had a lot of things on my mind. My problems are bigger than me, and I have nobody to help me.”
