The Niger State Police Command has arrested a 65-year-old man, Patrick Kalu has been arrested for allegedly having anal sex with a 15-year-old boy.
The suspect who resides at Railway Quarters in Minna, abducted the teenager and kept him in his house for over a year assaulting him on a daily basis.
He abducted the victim from Marino area of Abuja under the pretence of securing a job for him in Minna and on getting to Minna, he locked him in his house and started sodomizing him.
Kalu admitted having canal knowledge of the teenage boy attributing it to the handwork of the devil.
When asked how he managed to keep the boy in his house without him escaping or without the knowledge of anybody, Kalu said that although he has three children from his late wife, he lives alone at the Railway Quarters adding that he had to threaten the victim to stop him from escaping and each time he leaves the house, he makes sure that he locks the doors and the windows.
Kalu said, “I was doing it for pleasure. I started having the urge to sleep with little boys in my late 50s and now it has ruined my entire life. It is evil. I pray that my children and my community will forgive me.
I don’t deserve mercy at all, let the law take its course; I am stupid, honestly. I don’t know what came over me; each time I see small boys, I would be tempted to have sexual intercourse with them. I don’t know whether it is a curse placed on me. I usually entice my victims with money.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, Abigail Unaeze, said that police detectives arrested Kalu based on reliable information adding that he has confessed to the crime and would soon be charged to court.
