An elderly man was arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly luring a teen into his home and raping her, police in Nigeria said.
Lagos State police said that they have arrested 75-year-old Gabriel Nwakama, after being accused of raping the 13-year-old on Thursday.
Nwakama of 4 Oloosa-Oke Street, was charged with one count of assault and one count of rape after raping the girl in the bedroom of his home.
According to the police investigation, Nwakama lured the girl into his home as she went to take water from a river. Nwakama covered her mouth and raped her.
He warned the girl not to tell anyone about the rape or he would kill her. When the girl went home, her mother sensed that something happened, but she refused to talk.
After the mother threatened to beat her up, the girl finally told her that she was raped by the suspect. Nwakama pleaded not guilty.
Nwakama was booked into jail, and his bail was set at N500,000 ($2,512).
