A 19-year-old boy who had sex with a dog in an uncompleted building was caught red handed in Edo State.
The boy who gave his name as Osagiator Ighodaro, was caught by a man who thought he (Osagiator) wanted to steal the dog, but after trailing him to an uncompleted building at Iguosa community in Ovia North East Local Government Area of the state, watched him had sex with the dog.
The suspect has since been arrested by the state police command and would soon be charged to court.
The suspect, who lives at 13, Midwest Lane, off New Lagos Road, Benin City, said he often visited Iguosa community to do menial jobs.
He said the dog followed him as he walked in a street in the community, after which he took the dog to an uncompleted building where he had carnal knowledge of the animal.
“As I was walking down the street, I saw a dog following me and I carried it like a baby. Thereafter, I decided to take it to an uncompleted building where I did what I did to it. It was there that one man came into the building and arrested me. I did not know what came over me,” Osagiator stated when interrogated.
Spokesman of the state police command, Noble Uwoh, confirmed the arrest, saying the suspect would be charged to court today for unnatural causes. He added that the dog had since been killed by the community.
The traditional ruler of the community, Pa Clifford Igiehon, and the scribe, Festus Obadiaru, described the act as an abomination. They added that the suspect had been handed over to the police.
Igiehon said, “It is an abomination against the community. The young man came from Uselu community in Benin City. I don’t know why he decided to commit the act here in the community. We don’t want to see him here again.”
