An eighty-year old woman, Madam Mary Omorogieva, narrowly escaped being raped by a suspected Fulani herdsman in her farm at Iguobazuwa Ovia South West Local Government Area of Edo State.
Reliving the ordeal, the victim said: “I was on my farm, gathering firewood, when I felt a hand behind me asking me to lie down.
“I started shouting wetin now, when my attacker said he wanted to sleep with me. In the ensuing struggle, he placed a cutlass on my throat.
“He later put his fingers in my mouth, which I bit. I lost a tooth. As I bit his fingers, he got up and ran.”
Madam Omorogieva said she saw his face; that the person was short and black and had tribal marks.
The Divisional Police Officer, A.A Ehidero, said the matter has not been officially reported to him.
