A 28-year-old man, Emeka Okeke has been apprehended by police for allegedly raping a 36-year-old woman with a fake gun in Awka, Anambra state capital.
The suspect reportedly trailed the victim on her way home on Wednesday around 9pm around Okpuno, Awka and threatened to kill her if she refused to allow him rape her.
