Female Workers On Night Duty Raped In Enugu

By People&Politics

A number of workers of a polyethylene manufacturing factory at Akwuke in Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State were raped at their duty post Tuesday night.

Our reporter who confirmed the story from multiple sources, gathered that the girls were also dispossessed of their cell phones and other valuables.

The factory is reportedly owned by an Anambra-born entrepreneur, and located in-between New Gariki and Total junction at Akegbe Ugwu community.

A source, who refused to disclose her name, said, “The boys came at night. The victims were on night duties when they were attacked. They raped them serially, and left when they had done the harms they wanted.”

It was learnt that the sex invaders also made away with their victims’ handsets, money and other valuables.

An okada rider in the community alleged that it was not the first time women were being raped around the community.

According to him, “The neighbourhood network in the community is weak due to rivalries among the stakeholders. That has weakened the internal security of the hitherto peaceful community. The rapists are suspected to have come from a neighbouring community. I don’t think there is a police post in the community. They have very progressive youths there, but the bad eggs penetrate from some outside communities.”
