The Anambra State government on Thursday apprehended a 40 year old rape suspect, Anietie Tim, for raping a 14 years old girl in Onitsha.

The arrest came after several attempts, in which the suspect has been evading the authorities of Anambra State Ministry of Women Affairs and Children’s Welfare.

The suspect, who hails from Etinan in Akwa Ibom State during interrogation said he didn’t know the victim was a suspect, stating that the girl was the one tempting him, and because he was a full blooded man, he had to react to her advances.

He said: “She was my girlfriend, and she was always feeling hungry as her family was starving her, so she always comes to me.”

Commissioner for The Women Affairs, Mrs Ify Obinabo who questioned the suspect in her office, directed that he be handed over to the police.

She said: “He will be appearing before the Children, Sexual and Gender Based Violence Magistrate court in Awka to answer for his crime.

“The incident happened in 2022 after which the suspect has been evading arrest. He had on different occasions threatened the mother of his victim claiming to be untouchable.”
