20-Year-Old Man In Prison For Raping Mentally Ill Woman

For 20-year-old Terzoo Ugoo, the next month in jail will teach him some lessons about raping of mentally deranged people.

For Terzoo Ugoo, a 20-year-old man in Makurdi, Benue State, his lust and lack of control of his libido, has landed him in jail, where he will remain till December 4, 2014, when final judgement will be decided on his case. Terzoo was dragged to a Makurdi Magistrate Court for allegedly raping a mentally ill woman.

According to the police prosecutor, Inspector Terzungwe Kajo, Ugoo carried out the act sometime in October at Abough Village, behind Makurdi Modern Market, knowing fully well that the woman was not of sound mind and could not have given him consent to sleep with her.

The prosecutor also informed the court that the case was reported at the B Department of the Benue State Police Command headquarters, Makurdi by the mother of the victim.

According to the Kajo, the accused person dragged his victim inside his room while she was passing and raped her. He added that he covered her mouth so she could not call for help.

Kajo told the court that the offence contravenes Section 284 of the Penal Code, Laws of Benue State, 2004.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Lillian Tsumba, ordered the accused remanded in prison custody and adjourned hearing to Dec. 4.
