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).

“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.
