Man Caught Raping Mentally-Ill Woman In Niger State


A 21-year-old man, Haruna Musa, was caught having sex with a mentally ill woman at Angwan Gwari Kwamba in Suleja LGA of Niger State.

According to Daily Trust, a witness, John Daniel, made available a footage where the suspect said he had not yet penetrated before the screams of the mentally-ill woman alerted people.

Musa, who was found with wraps of substances believed to be Indian hemp, blamed his action on drunkenness and a curse from his village, but that what lured him to her was that she was naked.

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 21years. I had a lot of things on my mind. My problems are bigger than me. I have nobody to help me.”

The law stipulates life imprisonment for Musa if found guilty since a mentally unstable woman cannot give consent for sexual intercourse.
