Teenager subjected to gang rape by six boys, second gang takes her underwear.

Six boys aged between 16 and 27 have been arrested for gang-raping a 19 years old girl in the Anam community of the Anambra West Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The boys took turns on the girl and recorded the act, which has also been circulating on social media.

The girl who spoke to the Anambra State Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Mrs Ify Obinabo, said she was coming back from her maternal uncle’s house when the boys attacked her.

She was, however, rescued by passersby, who heard her cry, but before she got home, another set of boys accosted her and made her forcefully surrender her underwear to them.

Media assistant to the commissioner, Chidinma Ikeanyionwu, said, “Following the viral video on the internet of the 19-year-old girl who was gang raped by six boys in Anam, Anambra West Local Government Area of the state, the Commissioner intervened by arresting the boys and rescuing the victim.

“The suspects have been handed over to the police, and the case transferred to state criminal investigation department of police in Awka, from where they would be charged to court.”

The suspects’ names were given as follows; Afam Ezenwa, Chijioke Ifeanyi, Collins Obadom, Abuchi Okechukwu, Chima Obiekezie and Sunday Okafor.

Parents of the victim said their daughter was the third victim of the rape suspects, saying they were known for raping girls and collecting their pants which usually resulted in the death of their victims after some time.

They urged the government not to take the case lightly as their daughter’s life was at risk, especially now that they are yet to retrieve her underwear.
