The police in Edo State have arrested an 85-year-old man for allegedly raping a girl of seven.

The suspect, Peter Elaiho is said to have had forceful sexual intercourse with the child at Ogida quarters in the Egor local government area of the state.

The child’s mother, Endurance Ogieva, who reported the case to the police, said that the suspect had tricked the girl into entering his room, Punch reports.

“I did not see my daughter. I later heard her shouting. I traced the shouting to the landlord’s room, a man who is about 85 years old. I rushed there and saw the man naked. I gripped the man and both of us fell inside the chair. The man was begging me to settle but my shout attracted people,” Mrs Ogieva said.

“When they checked my daughter’s vagina, they saw blood stains and sperm. I went to the police station and the man was arrested,” the child’s mother added.

Mrs Ogieva also said that the suspect’s family had offered her N1 million to settle out of court but she turned it down

“The family of the man has been begging me to close the case but I refused because the doctor said my child had to be checked and to also ascertain whether the man has any disease. The child is too small for a man that is 85. I don’t want money. They are promising to give me N1m but I want justice from the government,” she said.

The police in the state are said to still be investigating the incident.
