Two men, Suleiman Adamu, 29, and Ahmadu Umaru Gambo, 26, have been arrested by the police for allegedly abducting and gang-raping a pregnant housewife in Machimim community, Maiha Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The state police spokesperson, SP Suleiman Yahaya Nguroje, who made this known said Suleiman is an uncle to the pregnant woman while Ahmadu is a neighbour to her and both of them are married and blessed with children.
It all started with Suleiman, who met Gambo, his friend, and informed him about his love for the pregnant housewife and his intention to have sex with her. The suspects perfected their evil plan on how to invade the house by night after they were informed that her husband had travelled.
The police investigation shows the suspects wore face masks, armed themselves with a cutlass and stormed the house by 11:00 pm, forced the first wife to lay face down, and whisked away the 2nd wife. They allegedly dragged the victim to a valley where both of them raped and abandoned her there unknown to them that she was able to identify her neighbour.
The matter was reported to the police and the suspects were arrested on February 19, 2023. Both of them have since confessed to committing the crime during interrogation at the police headquarters on Tuesday, February 21.
Nguroje said that the Commissioner of Police, Afolabi Babatola, had ordered that the matter be transferred to CID for further investigation and immediate arraignment.
