Boy, 19, arrested for alleged bestiality
A 19-year-old boy identified as Osagiator Ighodaro has been arrested by the police in Edo State for alleged bestiality. He was caught with a dog in an uncompleted building.
The bestial act occurred at Iguosa community in Ovia North East Local Government.
Osagiator was caught after a neighbour suspected the manner in which he carried the dog into the uncompleted building.
The suspect, who lives at 13, Midwest Lane, off New Lagos Road in Benin City, said he often visits Iguosa community to search for menial jobs.
He said the dog followed him as he walked in the street and he carried it into an uncompleted building.
Osagiator said: “As I was walking in the street, I saw a dog following me and I carry it like a baby. I took it to an uncompleted building. One man caught me in the act and apprehended me. I did not know what came over me.”
An eyewitness, Mr. George Ogbonmwan, said he was concerned about the manner in which the boy was fondling the dog.
He said he thought the suspect wanted to steal it, but was surprised when he saw the boy on the dog.
“When I saw the way the young man carrying the dog like a baby and fondled it, I told the owner and advised him to go towards the uncompleted building. He went to the building and caught the boy in the act.
The owner of the dog, Mr. Garuba Samari, said the dog should be given to the suspect and urged the community elders to report the matter to the police.
He said: “The dog has to follow him. I have nothing to do with it again.”
The community leader, the Odionwere, Pa Clifford Igiehon, said the act was an abomination.
He called for a medical examination of the suspect Police spokesman Noble Uwoh confirmed the arrest and said the suspect would be charged to court today.
