A 21-year-old man, Haruna Musa, was on Tuesday night caught having sex with a mentally ill woman at Angwan Gwari Kwamba in Suleja LGA of Niger State.

Before the suspect was whisked away by the police,  he was seen in a footage made available to our reporter by a witness, John Daniel, saying he had not yet penetrated before the screams of the woman alerted people.

Musa, who was found with wraps of substances believed to be Indian hemp, blamed his action on drunkenness and a curse from his village, but that what lured him to her was that she was naked.

He said, “If not for the security men, maybe I would have had sex with her. I don’t know what came over me. Please forgive me. I am just 21years. I had a lot of things on my mind. My problems are bigger than me. I have nobody to help me.”

The law stipulates life imprisonment for Musa if found guilty since a mentally unstable woman cannot give consent for sexual intercourse.
