A 25-year-old man, Yusuf Bello, has confessed to luring an 11-year-old boy to a public toilet and sodomising him.
According to the suspect, this followed his inability to control his libido after consuming a concoction he bought from a herbalist in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital.
He claimed that the mixture was to cure his stomach ache.
“The herbalist told me that the medicine had no side effects. But some hours after I took the medication, my manhood became hard.
“I did all I could to control it, but my effort was in vain, as it kept rising. So, I went to a toilet. While I was there, I saw a boy who also wanted to use the toilet. I asked him to come in and I had anal s.e.x with him to relieve the tension,” he added.
The Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Nassarawa State Command, Dr Muhammad Fari, said the suspect was apprehended immediately after the act.
He noted that the command also arrested two suspected rapists, who allegedly defiled two girls, aged six and seven, respectively.
