One of the ladies quoted by saying ;
“They picked us from Banex; when they picked us from Banex, they took us to Utako,” one of the girls said.
“But the police station was empty; there was no policeman inside, so they told us to pull off. When we pulled off, they started… some of us they used condoms, some of us they didn’t use.”
Another victim told the media that she was raped because she could not pay them the money they requested in bailing her.
“I was held down by three policemen while one of them raped me; he didn’t wear a condom. We were three in all that were raped by the same policemen,” she said.
“The three of us were all brought out of the van and raped by the policemen because we had no money to give them. We were raped behind the National War College. The other girls were also raped by two others; one of them used a pure water sachet as condom but the other one did not.”
The police and the social development secretariat of Federal Capital Territory development Association have taken the allegations serious.
