Corps Members Raped At Gunpoint In Akwa Ibom by 2mercy: 5:43pm On Jul 06
By Iniabasi Umo


Some female members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Akwa Ibom State have been raped.

They were assaulted when gunmen invaded a Corpers’ lodge in Uyo, the state capital.

It was gathered that the gunmen invaded the area on tricycles at about 1am and carted away valuables, including laptops, cell phones and money.

Narrating the incident, one of the corps members, said, “They arrived on a tricycle, popularly called Keke and immediately started operation. They beamed high intensity torchlight everywhere and pounced on every door with heavy iron and threatened to shoot us if we failed to cooperate”.

A female corps member, who preferred to remain unnamed, said her phones, laptop and money were taken away from her by force after the hoodlums entered her room through the back door.

“You know at that period of the night, most of us females, we used to sleep naked; the attack caught us unprepared. They beamed the torch through the window and threatened to shoot if the door is not quickly opened.

“I have never heard of this anywhere in Nigeria, even in the North, where insecurity is at the peak, that Corpers could be deliberately targetted, raped and robbed by criminals at gun point.

“Is it because we are not from Akwa Ibom that no one could hear our shouts and come to save us?” She lamented.

Also speaking, Mr Nsikak Ibanga, a night guard at the State Secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists which is located opposite the corpers lodge said, “I raised alarm by hitting the supporting pillars holding the reconstructed NUJ auditorium. The sound reverberated across the whole area but no response.”

Another neighbour, Bassey Offiong, stated, “When I heard the attack and the outcry of the corpers, I quickly reached out to the Police at Ikot Akpanabia Command, which is very close here, but they arrived a little late, after the criminals had finished and left with their tricycle.”

Youth Leader of the area, Godwin Okpo, blamed the criminal activities in the community on the collapse of internal security organized by the residents.

“I used to go round from house to house to collect monetary contributions for the night vigilante group to secure the area at night, but suddenly they started accusing me of embezzling their money, so there was nothing I could do again.

“When I heard the incident, I moved to the place but since I was alone, there was nothing I could do,” he stated.

When the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Odiko Macdon, was contacted, he said he was yet to be fully briefed on the incident.

“I don’t have any information about the incident but I will find out and get across to you,” he said.

He had not done so as of the time of filing this report.

Not in anyway surprised! SMH.
Criminals are having their way knowing we presently have in leadership a crop of blood sucking incompetent and wicked leader that can allow youths (citizens) peacefully protesting with the #EndSARS mantra been shot at by the military that is supposedly employed to protect them with their lives.

We need vote in all leadership positions young visionary leaders come next year and most importantly vote out both APC & PDP alike
.

SNEFF:

Vote or no vote the is messed up big time
So we'll leave it messed up? I appreciate when I'm quoted for positive reasons...next time kindly stay mute if you have no positive contribution to my mention...be guided.
Eniitankorede:




It is not the age that’s the problem of leadership in NIGERIA. The people get the leader they deserve. You the writer, can you swear by god of thunder that you have been honest and trustworthy in all your dealings? There is complete moral decadence in NIGERIA. And leaders arise from that mess. If you like, vote a toddler, the mess will continue until we do moral re-orientation of our society.
So what's the way to do the moral re-orientation without having young visionary leadership? and yes FYI age is part of the problem unless you prefer a medical tourist ancestor as president then you are part of the Nigerian problem ....BTW been a honest person is a virtue but it comes with personal growth and deliberate character building...next time stay mute if you have no positive contribution to a post or comment ...the truth is you lack the ability to comprehend my post because couldn't see that it's part of re-orientation for a better Nigeria.

Naija ... which way

Angel Gabriel, blow the trumpet.. Pastor Righteousness, Second in command to God, when is the saviour coming sir?

Well as for y'all shouting Peter Obi 23.

Remember that the same shiii that happened in 2019 is about to repeat itself again. Thus; when Nigerians got tired of the PDP's presidency which was even a Saint compared to the evil APC that later emerged due to our desperate crave for Change...

Now we're desperate for another Change again and I do not think we're thinking right grin lol... I pity us ... Well I dey Cairo, but i go come vote.
Hmmmmm... Like my daddy used to say, "All is Well even in the Well"

Fuckkkk Peter OBi, Fuckkk Atiku , Fuckkkk Asiwaju Tinubu and triple Fuckkkk Buhari..


P.s: Obi is still better than the other candidate's but we've all got the opportunity till nxt year to allow someone better come up....
They're all a No No!!!

Fraudbaby cares!!!!
