Cultists abduct, Gang rape 15
Year Old Girl

Suspected cultists in Katsina-Ala Local
Government Area of Benue have gang
raped a 15-year-old girl, the News Agency
of Nigeria, NAN, reports.
Sources told NAN that the teenager was
abducted on January 5, by the cultists.
The report said that the victim, who went
into coma after the rape, is being treated
at the Benue State University Teaching
Hospital, BSUTH, Makurdi.
The victim’s father, Terlanga Ugba, told
journalists at the hospital in Makurdi on
Monday that his daughter left home at
about 11 a.m. on January 5 to buy some
tailoring materials for her sewing work but
never returned.
Mr. Ugba said that they searched for her in
the hospitals, churches and friends’ houses
but did not find her until the following day
when he lodged a formal complaint with
the Katsina-Ala Police Station.
He stated that he followed up the
development with a special prayer session
for her recovery.
He narrated that a church member later
called to inform him that she saw his
daughter with a suspected notorious cultist
(name withheld).
Mr. Ugba said he organised another search
party on receiving the phone to comb all
the criminal hideouts in Katsina-Ala until
they found the girl being dragged out from
one of the hideouts by the river bank to
cover tracks of the crime.
He said the search party arrested the
suspect with the help of some Okada
riders and took him and the girl to the
police station.
According to him, he was later asked by
the police to take the girl to the hospital
for medical attention while they detained
the suspect.
He said that he rushed his daughter to
Nguher Clinic, Katsina-Ala, in a semi-
conscious state where she narrated her
ordeal to him and the doctor on call.
However, Mr. Ugba said that the vigilante
group in the area arrested one of the
suspects (name withheld) and handed him
over to the police.
According to the victim, she was abducted
by a group of boys as soon as she
stepped into their street on the fateful day.
She said that she was blindfolded and
taken to an unknown place where they
gave her four injections.
She told her father and the doctor that she
was not given water or any food for the
two days they kept her there, adding that
they forced her to smoke weeds while they
took turns to rape her.
She added that the suspects, three in
number, told her that she was always
snubbing them whenever they needed her
attention with a threat to deal with her.
Austin Oko referred the victim to BSUTH
upon a medical assessment which revealed
sexual assault on the girl, no bleeding seen
while traces of hard substance was found
in her blood.
The Commissioner of Police in the state,
Bashir Makama, confirmed the report,
saying that he had ordered the DPO in
Katsina-Ala to transfer the case to the
state CID for further investigation.
Mr. Makama assured the public of police
action, explaining that rape was a capital
offence and no police officer could play
with it.
He said investigation was on top gear to
arrest the fleeing suspects.
