32-year-old man rapes 70-year-old woman to death in Abia

A 70 year old woman and mother of four, Mrs. Cecilia Ogidi-Okereke, of Ibom Village in Arochukwu, Arochukwu Council Area of Abia State was last Sunday reportedly raped to death by a 32 year old man whose name was simply given as Ochu.

According to a source, Cecilia was said to have around 5pm Sunday, gone to a nearby bush to get some leaves for her domestic goats where Ochu trailed her and raped her to death.


Ochu,the source said, is believed to be a drug addict and was fond of railing and raping women of the area.

The source said that Ochu abandoned the deceased and ran away after he had brought her body to a nearby footpath to enable the villagers see it.

He was however arrested on Monday afternoon in Ohafia, a neighbouring community as he was trying to escape.
