Hon Obinabo who followed up on the case has not only rescued the victim but has equally apprehended the suspects and had the case transferred to state criminal investigative department of police in Awka where they would be charged to court for their crime.

Interacting with the girl and her parents in her office in Awka, Hon Obinabo lamented on the high rate of crimes amongst delinquents and called on parents and guardians to stop sparing the rod thereby spoil the child.

On her part, the rape survivor explained that it all happened when she visited her maternal home in Oramaetiti and got ambushed by a group of boys who took her to a room and took turns in defiling her.

She noted that despite her plea, they young boys who were between the ages of 16,17,18,20 and 27 years old respectively did not stop but continued having their sexual fill with her while one of them was filming her during the act.

The survivor who was visibly in tears, also stated that after she was rescued by some neighbors who heard her shouting for help, she left for her house only to be accosted on her way home by another set of boys who first harassed her and further forced her to pull her underwears and give to them which she obeyed because they threatened to kill her.

She revealed that it was a good Samaritan that later took her home to her parents.

According to the parents of the survivor who pleaded anonymity, her daughter is the third victim of the alleged rape suspects and they are known for raping girls and collecting their pants which usually results in death of their victims after a period of time.

They therefore urged the government to not take the case lightly as their daughter’s life is at risk especially now that they are yet to retrieve her daughter’s personal effect.
