15 Men Rape Female Corp Member, See Sad Details
A female National Youth Service Corp member is reportedly receiving treatment after being assaulted and raped by a 15-man gang of robbers in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
The sad incident happened on Sunday, June 17, 2108, after the robbers invaded the ‘Corpers Lodge’ at Yenizue Gene, a suburb of Yenagoa.
It was learnt that the armed robbers overpowered the neighbourhood vigilantes who were armed with sticks and machetes.
According to a resident of the community, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the corps member was repeatedly raped by the cruel robbers who took her in turns.
However, she is receiving treatment at the hospital. Local sources said though the police were alerted, there was little they could do because the area had been thrown into darkness by the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company.
According to the New Telegraph, a vigilante, who gave his name simply as Tonye, said the security men were afraid of running into an ambush.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Asinim Butswat, who was contacted by newsmen, however, said he had not got a clear information about the incident.
