A 14-year-old girl was reportedly kidnapped and gang-raped in the Mile 3 neighbourhood of Diobu in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers state, by two suspected cultists, Precious, also known as Pere, and Chidebere, also known as B2K.

On Wednesday, December 20, 2023, at ten in the morning, an incident happened close to a three-story building at National Street Mile 3.

Punch was informed by an anonymous source that the girls was approached by the thugs at a lonely intersection on National Street, where they displayed to her what appeared to be a gun before dragging her off.

“The girl was scared as one of the evil boys lifted his clothes to reveal what appeared to be a weapon. Additionally, there is calm on a portion of that route,” the person stated.

“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 defl0wered 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.
