Robbers Disguised As Policemen, Rape Corpers Along Kaduna-Abuja Highway

08 Jan

Seven corps members returning from the
recent holidays were among the 16
passengers attacked by robbers at a spot
on the Kaduna-Abuja highway on Sunday.
The females among the corps members
serving in Enugu and Ebonyi states were
reportedly raped by the hoodlums who
blocked the highway to stop vehicles.
A victim of the attack told the News
Agency of Nigeria in Enugu on Friday that
the 16-seater bus carrying them was
attacked by the robbers who disguised as
policemen.
She said that the bus left Television
Garage in Kaduna around 8:30pm and
was attacked a few kilometres away from
the garage.
The victim further said the robbers
mounted a road block to give the
impression that they were policemen on
duty.
“As we approached the road block, the
driver noticed that they were not
policemen and tried to retreat but it was
late.
“The robbers sensing what our driver
wanted to do, left other cars and
descended on us,” she said.
The victim said that the robbers forcefully
raped all the female corps members in
the bus and took all their belongings
which included laptops, jewelries,
handsets, foodstuffs and money.
The corps member appealed to the
government to ensure adequate security
on the highways.
