The long arm of the law has caught up with a 75 years old security guard man who raped an 11-year-old school girl in Enugu State.
The man was allegedly caught defiling the girl n one of the structures of the Community Secondary School, Ugbaike in Igbo Eze LGA Enugu State.
Enugu State Police Command Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement on Tuesday that the suspect was caught in the act by a good Nigerian on Aug. 30.
Amaraizu said that the suspect wanted to influence the good Nigerian not to bring up the alleged nefarious act.
“Just as the scriptural saying goes that one’s sin shall find him out, the iniquity of the man has found him out.
“The 75 year-old man was nabbed over alleged defilement of 11-year-old.
“It was gathered that the incident took place in one of the structures at the Community Secondary School, Ugbaike,” he said.
According to Amarizu, the suspect has been asking for forgiveness, claiming that Satan led him into the crime.
“The suspect is now helping the police in their investigation,’’ he added.
