Robbers Rape Corps Member In Bayelsa

Simon Utebor, Yenagoa

A gang of suspected armed robbers has raped an unnamed member of the National Youth Service Corps in Yenagoa , the Bayelsa State capital .

It was learnt that the hoodlums, during a house - to- house robbery at Yenizue- Gene , a suburb of Yenagoa , attacked the corps member ’ s apartment located in the area on Sunday .

The armed robbers, said to be three, reportedly stormed the area around 3 am and fired several gunshots into the air to scare away members of a vigilance group , who used sticks and cutlasses as
weapons .

The hoodlums were said to have robbed the victim of her mobile phones , cash and later raped her .

A resident , who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the armed robbers took turns to rape the victim in spite of her plea for mercy .

“ She has been taken to a hospital for treatment ,” the source added .

It was said that the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company had , since November 2017 , thrown the entire state into darkness with electricity
restored once in a while .

The development reportedly led to an upsurge in criminal activities , particularly cult -related killings and armed robberies.

The Police Public Relations Officer , Bayelsa State Police Command , Mr Asinim Butswat , confirmed the
robbery .

Butswat , a Deputy Superintendent of Police , said

“ The traumatised corps member reported the matter to the police station , including the way the hoodlums took turns to rape her .
“ She has made a useful statement on the identities of the armed robbers. We have launched a manhunt
for them . ”
