A man was arrested and charged with sodomy after he was caught red handed sleeping with a 15-year-old boy, police in Nigeria said.
Bayelsa State Police said that they have arrested and charged 65-year-old Uchenna Ignatius after he was accused of raping the boy over a long period.
The defendant, who is a commercial driver, reportedly had been having sexual intercourse with the child since 2012. He also threatened to kill him if he told anyone about their affair.
The abuse first began when the boy came home from school. The defendant persuaded the boy to go with him to his home. The defendant also deceived the child by telling him that he was a relative of his mother.
When the boy arrived at the house, the suspect quickly locked the door and ordered the boy to undress. When the boy refused, the defendant pulled out a knife and threatened to kill him if he opened his mouth.
The suspect continued to rape the child on a regular basis. The suspect was finally caught when he decided to have sex with the boy in his parents’ home. While having sex the boy’s uncle walked in and saw the suspect and his nephew in bed together.
He immediately notified the police, who arrested the suspect. The suspected was remanded into custody until the end of his criminal proceedings.
