The ugly trend of molestation which is fast becoming a norm rather than an exception, took a dangerous dimension when a lady believed to be in her early twenties, was molested to an unconscious state by four men around Cemetery Road in Warri, Delta State.
The victim, who is now receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital, was said to have boarded a taxi cab with four male passengers from Odion Road to her residence in Aguowe Street, Off Mac Demot Road.
Informationng.com gathered that to the chargin of the victim, the driver suddenly took a detour and headed towards Cemetery Road. We further learnt that upon challenging the driver of the taxi on the unexplained detour, the other passengers drew a dagger and threatened to kill her if she raised any alarm.
She was thereafter driven down to a storey building on the Cemetery Road where the scumbags took turns in r*ping the daylight out of her to a state of unconsciousness.
However, luck would run out on the suspects as the matter was reported to the Quick Response Squad of the Delta State Police Command in Warri, who swung into action and arrested one Akpofure, Seih and Obrakpo all of Nos. 24, 64 and 66, Cemetery Road, Warri.
Public Relations Officer of the command, ASP Famous Ajieh, who confirmed the arrests in Asaba yesterday, stated that the police were currently on the trail of the fourth suspect, one Ebeme.
The spokesman also said the arrested suspects had confessed to the crime, adding that one Black Berry phone used by the suspects in recording the despicable act, was recovered.
