The Plateau State Police Command on Friday confirmed the arrest of an 18-year-old man, Marvellous Luka, who allegedly raped his 70-year-old grandmother.

The police officer in charge of the case, Insp. Mulleng Alex, said that Luka, lives in Dangu-gu Village, Ampang West District of Mangu, Plateau.

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 later saw a group of people who came after me, beat me up and handed me over to the police.

“It is the devil’s handwork, I want my grandfather and the elders in my village to forgive me,” he said.

Also speaking, Mrs Mary Samuel, who witnessed the attack, said she heard the victim’s call for help while fetching water from the tap,

”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.
