Two suspected cultists, Precious aka Pere and Chidebere aka B2K, allegedly abducted a 14-year-old girl and gang-raped her in the Mile 3 area of Diobu in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.

The incident occurred at about 10am on Wednesday, December 20, 2023, near a three-storey building located at National Street Mile 3.

A source who pleaded anonymity told Punchthat the hoodlums accosted the girl at a lone part of the road on National Street and showed her an object that looked like a gun before whisking her away.

“One of the bad boys raised his clothes to show the girl what looked like a weapon and she became afraid. And some part of that road is quiet,” the source said.

“That was how the girl was deflowered. Before that time, they threatened to kill her if she refused to cooperate with them. After they had their way, they also threatened to kill her if she disclosed what had transpired to anyone.”

The source also said the apartment where the teenage girl was gang-raped allegedly belonged to one of the landlords of the building occupied by his son.

“One of the cultists, Precious aka Pere, recently returned from prison,” he stated.

Meanwhile, mother of the teenage girl who did not want her name in print for fear of stigmatisation confirmed the incident to the publication.

It was gathered that the matter had been reported to the Nkpolu Police Division in Mile 3, Diobu, where the teenage girl was issued medical form and is currently taking treatment at an undisclosed hospital.

The Vice Chairperson of a rights group in Rivers State, Centre for Basic Rights Protection and Accountability Campaign, Jennifer Stephens, has condemned the alleged abduction and gang defilement of the girl by the suspected cultists.

Stephens stated that more disheartening was the revelation that the girl was also deflowered in the process, saying from available information it was not the first time the suspects were perpetrating the act in the same building.

“Now that the matter has been reported to the police, we call on them to expedite action to arrest the fleeing suspects to ensure justice is done and seen to be done in the circumstance.

“We equally urge the police to invite the owner of the building or whosoever that is in charge of the building for questioning as we await the arrest of the suspects.”

Spokesperson for the state police command, SP Grace Iringe-Koko, confirmed the incident, saying investigation was ongoing.

“Yes, I can confirm. The Divisional Police Officer and his team are already on their trail to ensure they are arrested and meant to face the law. For now, investigation is ongoing and I assure you that before long, the suspects will be apprehended,” she stated.
