Men of the Imo State Police Command have arrested two brothers identified as Uchechukwu Asuzu, 20, and Bright Asuzu, 20 for allegedly gang-raping their 13-year-old cousin, identified Ugochukwu Chigozirim Ehirim.
The incident, according to reports, happened in Ezemanah Ezeamoruo Nkwerre, Imo State.
Spokesperson of the state police command, SP Orlando Ikeokwu, said Chigozirim was raped after her grandfather angrily sent her out of their home.
According to him:
“Chigozirim who stays with her grandfather, was sent on an errand by her grandfather. Unfortunately, she returned home late, as a result, the grandfather sent her out of the house.
All efforts to gain entrance into the house proved abortive as her grandfather insisted that she will sleep outside, as a result she was stranded.
Uchechukwu and Bright who are cousins to the victim, lured her to their house under the pretext of accommodating her for the night but rather had canal knowledge of her in turns.”
Ikeokwu further revealed that the duo will be charged to court upon conclusion of investigations.
