The 19-year-old boy (pictured) who was arrested last week in Edo for raping a dog has said that he took to sleeping with dogs after his girlfriend ditched him.
A junior secondary school-drop-out, the teenager who gave his name as Ighodaro recalled that he has had sex with dogs on five occasions. On two occasions, he said he paid the price for his unconventional approach to sex as he was bitten by the dogs involved.
A one-time apprentice welder, Ighodaro explained that it was his grandfather who helped him to treat the dog bites on those two occasions.
His word: “I learnt welding around Iheya. I don’t know when I slept with the dog, I slept with dogs five times. Some of the dogs bit me, I have been bitten two times and each time I have a dog bite my grandfather will treat me.
“When I call them, I will be rubbing their head, petting them so that they will feel free with me. I will be playing with them and they will follow me. They will bark at me some times, and when I notice that it is serious I will leave them. Any one that is friendly with me, I take that one to an uncompleted building and have sex.
“I had a girlfriend last year but we are no longer together. I started sleeping with dogs this year around March. I don’t know what is wrong with me.”
