Fulani Herdsmen Rape Two Housewives, Young Girl Mercilessly

The harm these so called Fulani Herdsmen
are causing in our
society is very worrisome. No fewer than
nine of them
allegedly rapéd a 15-year-old girl and two
housewives at
gunpoint, in Tse Ikyuer, Yandev, Mbagwen
in Guma Local
Government Area of Benue State.
Two of the victims, who narrated their
ordeal in Makurdi, the
state capital, said after beating and raping
them, the
herdsmen also made away with their
N60,000 and two phones.
The women, who could barely walk due to
pains, said: "one of
us (the teenage girl) was rapéd repeatedly,
after being
thoroughly beaten by the herdsmen. At the
moment, she is
neither able to walk nor talk.”
Before they were taken to an undisclosed
hospital in Makurdi
for medical attention by the Police, the
women, who spoke at
intervals, said: “The men with their leader
came to our home in
the afternoon and pleaded that we give
them water to
drink. We obliged them, but they noticed
the absence of our
husbands, and when their leader asked of
our husband’s
whereabouts, we innocently told him that
they travelled but
would be back much later.
“After drinking the water, they left, only for
about nine of
them to come back later in the day, armed
with guns and
machetes and asked us to lie down and
have séx with them or
they will kill everybody.”
The women who wept profusely,
explained that four of the
armed herdsmen fired shots in the air to
terrify and also
compel them to submit to their demands.
The women said that the leader of the
gang was well known in
the community but he fled from the area
with his family and
cattle shortly after the incident.
The police in Benue State said they are on
top of the situation.
