Essiet (not real name) and her elder sister, Debby (not real name) who are of ages 18 and 20 respectively are reported to have been raped by six armed hoodlums in the Bariga area of Lagos State.
According to Punch, the victims were returning from hospital in Oworonsoki last Thursday when the armed rapists attacked them.
When interviewed by Punch, Essiet described her experience as unbelievable.
It happened on May 21 around 11pm. My sister and I went to give food to a family member who had just given birth to a baby in Oworonsoki. We were returning in the night when we saw the men. They had guns, cutlasses and other weapons. They waylaid us and said if we shouted they would kill us. They took us to a spot around Dahomey junction and raped us.
The second victim, Debby, described the incident as painful. She said she wanted the suspects punished and their accomplices, who were still at large, arrested.
Two of them raped me, while four raped my sister. The third man wanted to rape me when a car approached. They all took to their heels. It was a painful experience. I have taken different medications and visited the hospital as well.
Two of the suspects are reportedly in detention at Bariga Police Station. The residents of Bariga told Punch that they are ignorant of the unfortunate rape.
