Anayochukwu Okarih, described as “a middle-aged man,” was arrested this weekend for having sex with a donkey belonging to Mrs. Nnedi Moses of Umuhu in Enugu.
An eyewitness told theNigerian Tribunethat the suspect was taken into custody after he was seen “parading around town naked.”
The slaughter house where the alleged sex act took place was said to have been abandoned shortly after the suspect was taken to Ikem Divisional Police station for further interrogation, making a full investigation more difficult.
However, the complainant, Ms. Moses, told reporters she “became apprehensive when she caught the suspect fumbling with his manhood.” The report did not disclose where Ms. Moses observed this indiscretion, but added that she believed Okanh might have contracted HIV and was looking for a way to spread the disease.
Police Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amarizu, told theTribunethat the suspect had confessed to the crime but asked for pardon, saying that he did not commit it with his right senses.
