A 30-year-old lady identified as Zainab Ja’afaru has been arrested by men of the Adamawa state police command for allegedly arranging for her friend to be gang-raped in Gerio community in the state.
The state Commissioner for Police, Olugbenga Adeyanju, who spoke to newsmen today July 1, said Ja’afaru asked the victim to accompany her to Gerio to see a male friend. Unknown to the victim, it was an organized plan for nine men to take turns to rape her.
“On arrival, the gang leader invited his syndicate about nine and applied force on the victim and had sexual intercourse with her one after the other”, Adeyanju said.
He said 14 suspected rapists have been arrested so far in the state while five of them including Ja’afaru were nabbed for abatement.
He said the other four suspects were suspected homosexuals who constituted a nuisance in Jabbi-lamba village.
The Commissioner appealed to parents to desist from sending their children and wards out at night so as to avoid them getting raped.
“Avoid sending your children to buy Maggi and salt in the dark”, the police chief said.
