The identities of four men who allegedly gang-raped a 20-year-old lady in Delta State, last Friday, after accusing her of stealing has been revealed.
The men have been identified as Samuel Efajumue, Celestine Obeh, Ojigbo Blessing and one Bright. While one of them has been arrested, police are on the trail of three others who are still at large.
It was gathered that the main suspect Ojigbo Blessing had invited the lady to his house on Friday 6th September where he accused her of stealing N31,000.
The lady, whose identity was not revealed, said she had earlier met Blessing through a friend and decided to honour his invitation to his house on the said day which turned out to a nightmare for her.
While she was in the house, Blessing was said to have raised a false alarm that the lady stole his money. His alarm caught the attention of nine other men in the house who stripped the girl and beat her severely.
Four men thereafter took turns to rape the lady and also filmed their heinous acts which they later uploaded on social media.
The lady narrated her ordeal to a human rights activist, Gwamnishu Harrison of Behind Bars Initiative (BBI).
Harrison who took up the case to seek justice for the victim wrote on his Facebook wall:
“Earlier today, we received a complaint about a 20-year old girl who was gang-raped, robbed, filmed and video released on social media.
“Giving her narrative, she said her friend introduced her to a boy (Blessing Ojigbo). They met and on Friday 6th September, 2019, she visited his house to acclimatise with him on a relationship level which later turned to be her nightmare.
“Ejigbo Blessing accused her of stealing N31,000 and called about 9 of his friends which includes neighbours overpowered and stripped her naked. Three of them raped her in turns, recorded their act and published on social media.
“They also took her ATM card and pin, cleared her little savings.”
According to Harrison, only Samuel Efajumue has been arrested while three others are at large and that they have been declared wanted by operatives of the Delta State Police Command.
“Their real face. They gang raped, robbed, filmed 20-year old and video post on social media platforms.
“We have arrested one of them through 48hours BBI-Hitech. Samuel is now in SACU detention Delta State Police Command. others are yet to be arrested.”
