A 57-year-old man, Anselm Osagie, has been arrested for allegedly raping the 98-year old mother of his landlord.
The Nation reports that Osagie was alleged to have committed the offence on January 3.
But Osagie has denied the allegation, saying that a false alarm was raised by a co-tenant who saw the old woman sitting on his bed. He said it was not the first time she had been entering his room, adding that the woman had been coming to his room since October last year.
The suspect, who was paraded alongside 43 other suspects, said he was beaten and accused of making love to an old woman before the police arrested him.
