Police said yesterday that they had apprehended six men who stripped a 24-year-old lady and rubbed pepper into her private parts for allegedly stealing a phone.
This was even as reports emerged that the incident leading to the violent assault on the lady had to do with sexual nature. The reports, however, have different versions.
A police source said: “There were two ladies involved in the matter. One is a matured lady and the other is the victim. It was actually the matured lady that took the victim to the hotel to meet the men. Apparently, the matured lady knows one of them. The hotel manager, where the whole drama started, was among those arrested.
Further investigation by New Telegraph correspondent revealed that the victim was taken to Lafun Hotel located in the state. The hotel is alleged to be owned by a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (names withheld).
