SICK! Why I Raped My Mother, Wife’s Grandmother
A 32-year-old man has been arrested for raping his mother and his ex- wife’s mother.
Both women are in their 50s and 60s respectively.
David Shakari was arrested in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State by the Police Intelligence Response Team.
Shakari had attended a festival sometime in August 2017 in the community and returned home drunk in the night.
Shakari, who lived with his mother, reportedly met the woman asleep and forcefully had sex with her.
He was said to have begged his mother the following day when he regained his senses and promised not to repeat the act.
About three months later, it was gathered that the secondary school leaver attended another festival in his ex-wife’s community in Mahuta and got drunk again. He headed for his ex-in-law’s house in the night.
The police said Shakari fled after raping his ex-mother-in-law and was given a chase by neighbours who were attracted to the victim’s cry.
Speaking with the suspect, he admitted raping his mother but said he had not penetrated into his ex-wife’s mother’s private parts before she raised the alarm.
A police source noted that some vigilantes in Mahuta reported the incident to the IRT led by DCP Abba Kyari and a manhunt was launched for the suspect.
I was drunk
A remorseful Shakari narrated his story.
His words: “Ever since I graduated from secondary school, I tried my best to secure a job but failed. I became a farmer cultivating yam and guinea corn. I made a little money and got married to a 13-year-old girl.
After our first child, she told me that she would like to go back to school and complete her secondary school education. I agreed and sponsored her but after completing her education, she started following other men, threatening to divorce me.
“I got angry and sent her back to her parent’s house so they will caution her. I was left alone for so long. Sometime in December 2017, I attended the Moroha festival in the village. I took so much beer and got drunk.
“I got home around midnight and felt like having sex. Something moved me to my mother’s room and I assumed it was my wife’s room. My wife always refused me sex and most of the time, I had to force her before she would allow me.
“When I got to my mother’s room and tried, she refused and I decided to overpower her. I beat her up and gagged her mouth so that she would not shout and wake the entire compound. When I finished, I went to my room and dozed off.
“It was in the morning when one of the elders in the compound forcefully woke me up that I realized what happened. I came outside and saw my mother weeping and some of our kinsmen had gathered.
I initially denied it, claiming it was my wife that I slept with, but when they confronted me with the fact that my wife was in her father’s house, I realized that she was the one. I immediately fell on the ground and started begging her for forgiveness. She forgave me as a Christian and the elders cautioned me.
Because of shame, I moved out of my family compound. I am an active member of Holy Church Catholic, Kaura. I was scared that as the secretary of my church that I could be excommunicated.
“I relocated to Kamnaka in Kaduna town, which is the village of my wife.
“I started working as an artisan. In April 2018, I attended another party and decided to take some alcohol. Unfortunately, I got drunk again.
I could not find my way back to my house again and I decided to visit my in-laws and pass the night there. Though their daughter was misbehaving, they still loved me.
“When I arrived there drunk, I could not differentiate between my wife and any other person. My intention was to sleep with my wife, whether she liked it or not. I had already pulled her panties when she started screaming for help. I tried to overpower her but she was too strong. She slapped me and I regained my senses. It was then I realized that was my wife’s grandmother. I ran away as people who heard her scream had started gathering.
“I ran to the city and monitored things from home. It was my church member who told me that policemen were looking for me, that mama (wife’s grandmother) had filed a case of rape against me. For months, nobody found me. I had contacted my family to help me beg my in-laws. Unfortunately, I was arrested by the police.”
Asked if he had committed the act for ritual purposes, Shekari, a native of Kaura, said never. “I am a child of God and had no covenant with the devil. You can go to the church and ask about me. I was under the influence of alcohol. And as a man whose wife left a long time, I needed sex. Under normal circumstance, how can I choose to have sex with an old woman? There are so many beautiful girls around in the village. I am very sorry and I beg my in-laws to withdraw the case.”
