The Niger state Police Command has said that a 65-year-old man, identified as Patrick Kalu has been arrested for allegedly having anal sex with a 15 years old boy.
It was gathered that the suspect who resides at Railway Quarters in Minna had abducted the teenager in Abuja and kept him in his apartment for over a year while he assaulted him on a daily basis.
The victim was said to have been deceived into believing that the suspect would help him secure a job after he abducted him from Marino area of Abuja.
The unnamed boy was thereafter held incommunicado in his house while he routinely sodomized him.
Having arrested Kalu and confessed that he was actually having anal sex with the boy, he was paraded by the Niger state Police Command in Minna claiming that he was lured by the devil to perpetrate the act.

Kalu was said to have resorted to threat and intimidation to prevent the boy from escaping.
The suspect, who has three children from his late wife explained, “I threatened him not to escape. Every time I left the house, I locked the doors and the windows. I live alone at the Railway Quarters and that makes it easier for me.
However, the Police Public Relations Officer, Niger State Command, Abigail Unaeze said that police detectives arrested Kalu.
We worked on decrepit information adding that the suspect (Kalu) has confessed to have committed the crime. He would be charged to court very soon, the spokesperson reiterated.
