Armed robbers dressed as Nigerian Police officers reportedly raped seven, 7 members of the National Youth Service Corps along Kaduna-Abuja highway.
PUNCH reports that the incident happened on Sunday when the corp members were returning from the recent holidays. They were in a sixteen seater bus that was stopped by the robbers disguised as Nigerian police officers.
One of the victims 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.
