The Kaduna State Police Command has arrested a 50-year-old man, Safiyanu Kamala, for allegedly having sex with a mentally-retarded woman who has become pregnant.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Isah Gambo, who said this on Wednesday in Katsina, added that Kamala was a native of Juno village, in the Kankara Local Government Area of the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that according to Gambo, the victim’s relatives reported the case to the police.
“Kamala is already in police net over the issue and he has confessed to be responsible for the pregnancy,” he said.
It was gathered that Kamala allegedly lured the woman to his farm several times, where he had sex with her.
The PPRO said, “The act eventually led to the 28 weeks pregnancy the victim is carrying.
“The woman presently lives with members of her family.”
