A 30-year-old man, Mr Sunday Nwadiagba, has been arrested at Nkwelle village, Awkzu, Oyi Local Government Area, Anambra State for allegedly raping a 75-years-old woman in her farm.

Nwadiagba, who hails from Eyiba, Ebonyi State narrowly escaped death by lynching as angry mobs who discovered him, pounced on and hit him to stupor before his arrest by the police.

According to the State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr Tochukwu Ikenga, DSP, the suspect was arrested by operatives around 4pm on June 24.

The statement read, "Anambra State Operatives collaborating with Security agents at about 4pm on 24/6/2022 have rescued from mob action and arrested one Sunday Nwadiagba ‘M’ aged 30years from Eyiba, Ebonyi State for allegedly raping a 75yrs old woman living in Nkwelle Awkuzu. 

"Preliminary information reveals that the suspect was caught in the act at the farm on the victim, before the old woman screaming, got the attention of the passer-by and neighbors.  Before his arrest, angry mob had already beaten him to stupor. Meanwhile the victim and the suspect has been taken to hospital for medical attention. 

"The Commissioner of Police, CP Echeng Echeng has reiterated the Campaign against mob action by some members of the public who resort to jungle justice whenever they arrest suspects in respect of any crime. They should endeavour to take such suspect to the nearest Police Station whenever they are apprehended.

" This would afford the Police the opportunity to conduct appropriate investigation into the nefarious activities of the suspects; and bring them to justice in accordance with extant laws. Further details shall be communicated please!"
