A 18-year old boy, Chimaobi Peter, has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping a mad woman, identified as Iya Rasheedi, at the Ile-Epo, Abule-Egba area of Lagos state.
Luck ran out on the boy when residents in the area heard the screams of the mad woman and rushed to the scene only to find a teenager with his pants down raping the woman.
When question Chimaobi said he had not yet begun before the mad woman started screaming and attracted people's attention.
"I was drunk that day and was walking on the road when I saw the woman who was stark naked and I was aroused by her nudity.
"I did not know what came over me. Maybe I am under a curse but I did not have sex with her because as I removed my trouser and wanted to penetrate her, she screamed and started struggling with me.
"It was her scream that alerted the local vigilance men who rushed to the scene. If not for the security men, maybe I would have had sex with her, notwithstanding that she was screaming and struggling. I don't know what came over me."
But the mad woman's family members insisted the boy aped her for ritual purposes.
The police has said they'll be taken the case to court, though they have to gather enough evidence which entails taking the mad woman to a hospital for medical checkup to ascertain if she was actually raped.
