How We Robbed, Raped SIXTY 5 year-oldWoman To Death, By Suspect


Physinews: The police in Abia State in Nigeria have paraded 24
suspected criminals in Umuahia.
One of them was a 24-year-old commercial
tricyclist simply called Samuel. He was said to
be a member of the three-man gang that
robbed, raped and killed a 65-year old
grandmother at Ofeme. The incident happened
on October 8 at about 9pm.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr Leye
Oyebade, said in Umuahia, that the victim, Mrs
Anthonia Dike, was returning from Jos on a
business trip when the three hoodlums, who
rode on a motorbike trailed the bus in which
they were traveling, from Okigwe in Imo State
to a point along the Ofeme axis of the express
road. They blocked the bus and dragged out all
the passengers into a nearby bush .
They dispossessed them of their wares, cash
and other valuables, separated the men from
women and had sex with the female
passengers.
He said the suspects dragged the 65-year- old
woman into the bush, where they raped her in
turns. “Having satisfied their evil sexual desires
on
the 65-year old grandmother, and were ready
to go, one of them pulled out a gun, pointed it
on her middle nose region and pulled the
trigger. The woman died instantly,” Oyebade
said. Okorie who struggled to exonerate himself
of
the crime, told newsmen that he was not the
one that killed the grandmother, but the two
men he carried on his bike, who are now at
large .
“I was not the one that killed the woman, but
the two men that I carried on my bike. I am the
pilot that carried them, I cannot say that I don’t
know what they were doing, but I only took
them there and waited for them to finish. I did
not follow them to rob or kill anybody. The two
men I carried, robbed, the people, and killed the
women,” he said.
Okorie who said he lives at Agiriga area of
Okigwe, said he was in the bush waiting for his
two friends without knowing that they were
raping the women.
