had indeed raped the lady to death blamed his actions on a powerful aphrodisiac
concoction sold to him by popular drug vender known as “aboki”.

groundnut and honey introduced to us by one Aboki that made me lose control.” He
He also revealed that he ganged-raped the victim with two
accomplices who managed to escape when the police swooped on them.

had booked an appointment with a doctor only to be accosted on the way, dragged
into a nearby bush and violently raped, which led to her untimely death.

The suspected rapist is in police custody assisting in
investigations while there is a man-hunt for the other two accomplices said to
be on the run.
