Three teenagers have been arrested for allegedly gang-raping a 20-year-old woman in Paikoro Local Government Area of Niger State, following a report by the father of the victim.
The suspects, Shafiu Isah, 20, Jawalu Babuga, 19, and Musa Sabiu, 18, allegedly followed the victim on her way from work and gang-raped her.
The suspects who were paraded by the Police revealed that they have been raping girls for a long time and were never caught.
Speaking to the press, one of the suspects, Isah, said none of their victims or their parents had been bold enough to report them to the police stating that it was very surprising when they were arrested because of this rape.
“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 Police were able to trail and arrest the suspects after a tip-off.
Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar confirmed that the suspects confessed to the crime and the case would be charged to court after investigation
