We move from village to village looking for who to rape – Suspects arrested for gang rape
The Niger state police command has arrested three suspects who allegedly gang-raped a 20-year-old woman in Paikoro Local Government Area of the state.
The suspects identified as 20-year-old Shafiu Isah; 19-year-old Jawalu Babuga and 18-year-old Musa Sabiu, disclosed that they have been raping women for long before their arrest.
They further revealed that they were surprised to get arrested for rape as none of their victims has been bold enough to report them to their parents.
Isah said, “We are street boys, we move from one village to another looking for whom to rape since we have no money to give to girls after sex. We usually perform the act where nobody will see us and our victim cannot refuse us sex.
“We have no means of livelihood and that was why we resort to raping women and girls.”
The suspects’ arrest came after their victim who they trailed from work reported the incident to her father.
Speaking to newsmen, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer Muhammad Abubakar said the rapists will be charged to court after investigations has been concluded.
