The prosecuting police counsel, Mr Moses Onyia, said the victim went to her mother’s garden to cut vegetables on Nov. 15, 2013 at about 5 p.m. when the accused persons forced her into a nearby bush.
Onyia said the accused persons raped the victim repeatedly until she became unconscious and they left her and ran away.
The counsel said that people came and rushed the victim to a nearby hospital for treatment.
“The worst part of it was that the accused persons are living in the same neighbourhood with the victim so she knows them.
“One of the accused, Chukwudi Iwuagu, has been at large since the incident until April this year when the police found him in Onitsha, Anambra.
He said the victim’s mother just set his clients up because she had a little problem with one of them inside a bus.
Justice Dorothy Agishi adjourned the case till July 9 for hearing. (NAN)
