The National Human Rights Commission, NHRC, yesterday, called on the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Azubuike Ihejirika and Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory, FCT Command to investigate the allegation that some men dressed in army uniform abducted and raped some women in Abuja under the guise that they were prostitutes.

Executive Director of NHRC, Prof Bem Angwe, in a statement, noted that the commission monitored the report of the incident as aired by Federal Radio Corporation on January 16, 2013.

It was reported that on December 20, 21 and 22, 2012, some women were allegedly abducted by men in army uniforms in an unidentified black Hilux van in Wuse 2, Abuja, under the guise that they were prostitutes and taken to an unknown destination, where they were allegedly beaten and raped.

Angwe appealed to Army and Police authorities to investigate the matter and bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to justice as no woman deserves to be treated that way.
