A 60-year-old man arrested for raping, murdering a virgin

A 60-year-old man, Emma Ukwa has been arrested by a vigilance group at Amaekpu Ohafia, in the Ohafia local government area of Abia state for allegedly raping and killing a 36-year-old woman.

According to an eyewitness, Ukwa raped the victim, identified as Josephine in a farm on Friday, November 18. The suspect mocked the woman for being a virgin after defiling her.

It was learned that Ukwa confessed to having developed a lust for the lady after seeing her half naked while taking her bath in the village stream.

Ukwa said he only wanted to have sex with the victim, but later killed her when she insisted that she would expose him.

Punch reports that Ukwa was exposed when a friend of the deceased went to the farm to find out what would have kept her friend so long, but later found her lifeless body there.

''The friend had met Ukwa on the way before seeing the victim’s corpse. She came back and raised the alarm, prompting the Amaekpu Ohafia Vigilance Group to arrest Ukwa,'' a resident said.

The Chairman of the vigilance group, Godwin Anya, said women of the community had staged a peaceful protest to condemn the act.

''The suspect has been handed over to the police,'' he added

It was said that efforts made to contact the state police public relations officer, Nta Ogbonaya, proved abortive.
