How school leaver was raped by cultist in Ebonyi



The incidences of rape in Ebonyi State has over time become an issue for critical discourse as the victims are usually underaged female without any strong economic base to prosecute the case in a court of competent jurisdiction.

A disturbing rape case which recently happened in Ebonyi involved a teenager who was celebrating her birthday on the day of the incident as a suspected rapist cashed in and spoilt her day.

“Miss Cynthia, 22, was in celebration mood and decided to step out to get some items for her birthday celebration after preparing a cake for the event when a man forced her to his room and forcefully had carnal“knowledge of her.”

The incident occurred at Umualoma axis of Nkaliki, Abakaliki Local Government Area of Ebonyi State where she resides with her parents.

“After having unlawful carnal knowledge of her, the man allegedly locked her inside the room.” Cynthia said she had to pick a cell phone the guy left inside his room when he locked her inside and dialed her own phone which she left in her house and it was her elder sister who picked the call and came to her rescue as no one in the man’s compound agreed to open the door for her when she was screaming.“
