A middle-aged man, Mohammed Z. Alpha, who hails from Kwanar Dangora town, in Kiru Local Government Area of Kano State, has pleaded guilty to raping 40 women in the last one year.

According to a report by newsexpress.ngr, the 33 year old Mohammed before a Magistrate Court admitted to also raping an 80 year old in the Kwanar Dangora

He also pleaded guilty to the charge that he attempted to rape some children in a family home, a situation which led to his arrest by the members of the community Police prosecutor Badamasi Gawuni, thereafter, asked the court to adjourn the case to the next sitting.

The magistrate, following the request of the prosecution, adjourned the case to July 20 and ordered the suspect to be remanded in a correctional home in the state.

The rampaging rapist had been arrested on June 4.

In his confessional statement to the police, Alpha had admitted to having broken into a home with the intention to rape the daughters of the family.

“I slipped into the house of the family and at about ten, Alpha confessed. ‘Their mother suddenly noticed that the light of her children’s room had been switched off, a situation which forced her to step out to check.’

‘I, upon noticing the reflection of her torchlight coming in the direction of the room, had no option left. I dashed out of the room forcefully and fled.

‘When she saw that I had fled, she started shouting and screening, calling out for help, which attracted the members of the community that chased after me, before I was caught,’ the suspect narrated.

Upon questioning on the number of victims he had raped in recent past, Alpha said they were up to 40, saying that they cut across all ages.

The serial rapist expressed regret over his actions and appealed to other rapists to change their ways.

The incessant cases of rape experts say has become a worrisome situation even as several homes battle with the hard biting economy caused by the COVID- 19 pandemic. More worrisome observers have argued is the rape of minors. Debates and counter debates have trailed this situation on the penalties for such offences with many calling for outright deaths, castration and outright execution.
