According to Alex, the suspect has been charged and would soon appear before the High Court in Pankshin, Plateau for trial.

The police alleged that the suspect in his ”confessional” statement, said that he attacked his grandmother in her room while sleeping.

“I was ‘sexually charged and I couldn’t help myself at that moment and resorted to having sex with her.

“My grandmother cried for help but I overpowered her and had my way.

“She tried holding me down but I escaped and ran to a market where I push wheelbarrow for a living.

”I was shocked at what I saw. I tried to hold him down but he escaped. I raised an alarm and he was later apprehended in a market where he works.

”I took a wrapper which was on the floor and covered the woman,” NAN quoted him as saying.
