A 22-year old young lady was gang-raped to coma by 4 armed men at the Cemetery Road in Warri, Delta. The rapists recorded the whole incident with a BlackBerry phone.
The victim boarded a taxi with 4 male passengers from Odion Road to Aguowe Street (her residence). After she boarded, the taxi driver suddenly took a turn towards Cemetery Road. After that, the 4 rapists hit her.
The victim tried hard to resist the rapists, but she did not succeed. Her rapists were armed with dangerous weapons including a dagger and guns. They threatened her and said that they will kill her once she raised an alarm.
They drove to an unfinished building along Cemetery Road where they took turns in raping the victim and left her in a state of coma.
The Quick Response Squad of the Delta State Police Command in Warri got a tip regarding the incident and they pounced on the suspects. They arrested one Tejiri Akpofure , Ogbor Seih, and Great Obrakpo (Nos. 24, 64, and 66) at Cemetery Road.
Famous Ajieh, the new Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) and Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) confirmed the arrests in Asaba on January 4. According to him the police command has gone out to arrest Stephen Ebeme, a member of the gang who has escaped.
According to Ajieh, the suspects confessed to them and surrendered the BlackBerry phone that they have used to record the gang-rape scene. He assured that the rapists will be charged to court. He also mentioned that they already have the custody to 3 alleged kidnappers/murderers which include David Evjouke, Ola Ikwueke, and Ikechukwi Uwaguna.
It was found out that the suspects killed Emmanuel Chukwunolu – the man who refused to be kidnapped two weeks ago at Ebeneku, Ndokwa.
The rape victim, whose name was unrevealed, is still recovering in an undisclosed clinic in Warri.
