A man who admitted to raping young girls, told police he does so in order to prolong his life, according to police reports in Nigeria.

71-year-old Alhaji Ganiyu was arrested after being accused of raping a 7-year-old girl.

Ganiyu, who is a hunter and a security guard, lured the girl to his one-room apartment with cookie. The victim’s mother called police after discovering the crime.

Ganiyu admitted the crime saying that all he wanted is to live longer, adding that he regretted his actions.

“I slept with the girls to extend my stay on earth. That’s all I need to extend my stay. I was not doing it for a ritual or for money as people say. Anyway, I regret my actions,” Ganiyu told police.
