The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, in Ebonyi State, yesterday, arrested a serial r*pist and homos*xual, Chibuike Maduka, who allegedly r*ped four children of different parents at Ndibe in Afikpo North Local Government Area of the state.
Maduka however blamed his strange s*xual behaviour on his mother, Mrs. Idam Augustina Josephine, whom he confessed to have had s*xual intercourse with on several occasions. He however said he doesn’t know what usually compel him to have s*x with children in the area.
State Commandant of NSCDC, Mrs. Ego Echendu, who paraded the suspect at the Command headquarters in Abakaliki, said the suspect was arrested after a tip-off by an indigene of the area, adding that the suspect had in a confessional statement disclosed that he had s*xual intercourse with his mother.
“We got a tip-off and sent some of our men to follow up the information concerning an adolescent male who has been in the business of raping children.
“We continued to monitor the suspect and fortunately at about 3 p.m yesterday, our divisional office at Afikpo North Local Government Area was able to locate him and his mother who, we reliably gathered, was also a key player in the son’s sexual escapades.
“The suspect confessed to have been having s*xual intercourse with the biological mother and we asked to know when it started and he said last year and also claimed that the mother usually encouraged him to sleep with children of tender ages.
“Because this case involves women and children of these age bracket, we want to transfer this case to the Ministry of Women Affairs in the state for them to take it from there.
“He sleeps with his own biological mother who is in our custody now; and again he also told us that he is a homosexual, he sleeps with other male friends.
“From my analysis, I think he has some sought of brain disorder,” the commandant said.
According to the suspect, “I’m here because of my mother. She used me for ritual. I don’t know what I’m doing. If I see a little child I will r*pe her; this act started in 2008; it is not my fault but that of my mother.
“I have r*ped my mother and four children. My father is late. I don’t know myself again. I had homosexual activities with one Emmanuel three times at Amangu in Afikpo North Local Government Area.”
In her reaction, mother of the suspect, 45-year-old Mrs. Idam Augustina Josephine denied having any s*xual involvement with his son, insisting that he doesn’t know what was happening to his son.
“I am 45 years and the mother of Chibuike Maduka. How can I teach my child to r*pe little children? I’m here because my son r*ped some children; he is telling a lie, he never had any s*xual relationship with me,” she said.
