A Makurdi Magistrates’ Court on Friday ordered the remand of a 20-year-old man, Tersoo Ugoo, who allegedly raped a 20-year-old mentally deranged woman, Punch online reports.

The prosecutor, Insp. Terzungwe Kajo, told the court that Ugoo committed the offence in October at Abough Village, behind Makurdi Modern Market.

Kago said that the case was reported at the Department of Criminal Investigation, ‘D’ Division, Police Headquarters, Makurdi, by the victim’s mother.
He submitted that the victim was walking on a street when the accused dragged her into his house and raped her.

He said the accused covered the woman’s mouth as she shouted for help.

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Section 284 of the Penal Code, Laws of Benue, 2004.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Lillian Tsumba, adjourned the matter till Dec. 4 for hearing.
