A 20-year-old lady, Chioma Dioke, has narrated how kidnappers forced her elder brother to have sexual intercourse with her while they were in captivity and duress.
Dioke who was speaking about the incident stated that they were sent into a bush called Sambisa forest located in Ezzagu in the Ishielu Government Area of Ebonyi State.
Miss Dioke, who is from Nsukka in Enugu State, and two other victims had gone to Ezzagu to sell their goods including noddles, diapers, and oil.
The business involved a modality that allowed people of the community to invest in which considerable amounts are received as their returns.
However, the owner of the investment business reportedly ran far away from the community with the payments made by their customers without the knowledge of Miss Dioke and her brother.
In anger, the youth abducted Miss Dioke, her brother, and the other person involved in the business and held them hostage in the bush. They were starved, threatened, and sexually assaulted.
According to Miss Dioke, she was repeatedly raped by boys from the community while others inserted hands, rods, and sticks into her private part.
“One day, our boss traveled. I visited the office and couldn’t see three of our colleagues. I only saw my elder brother and one other guy who was working with us.
As three folks were within the office, the community youth came and began beating us, demanding where our boss was.
“They started molesting me; some had sex with me, while others inserted hands into my genitalia. Some pressed my breasts.
“After they finished molesting me, they said my elder brother must roll in the hay with me. They carried my brother, beat him up thoroughly, and ordered him to start having sex with me. My brother told them that it had been against our culture. They insisted that he must roll in the hay and pointed a gun at his head. My brother had no option than to have sex with me.
“After blood gushed out of my genitalia, they ordered my brother to wash the blood. When he refused, they beat him up again. They came to me again and had sex with me when I was bleeding.
“After having sex with me again, a number of them came to me and inserted sticks in my genitalia. Later, they took us to a different forest where we stayed for four days. If they hear anything sort of a gunshot, they’re going to take us to a different forest.”
