A 70-year-old man who has HIV, has been arrested for raping a 13-year-old girl in Plateau State.
The incident happened last Friday at Barakin Ladi local government area of the state. The suspect, Adamu Vou allegedly lured the teenage girl into his apartment and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her, but was caught in the act by his landlord’s son, Kelvin Abraham who blew the whistle on the rape.
Reports have it that 70-year-old Adamu was a serial rapist who had been caught in similar acts severally but always left off the hook due to his age.
It was further learnt that he was HIV positive and had been receiving treatment at a medical centre within the local government area and was under close watch by those who were aware of his high libido and his preference for underage girls.
A doctor at the Barkin Ladi General Hospital, Samuel Audu, said the arrested man had been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and until his arrest, had been receiving anti-retroviral therapy at the same hospital.
