The victim who is preparing for this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) narrated that she attended a wake-keeping on Saturday evening where the suspects raped her.

She continued that one of the boys lured her and the other suspects held her to the ground and took turns to forcefully have sex with her.

“After the incident, they threatened and warned me not to mention it to anyone or they will kill me.”

This has caused her more pain than she imagined.

“I feel pains in my abdomen and my vagina. I have a severe headache too and I feel so weak since the incident happen. I want the Police to deal with the perpetrators because they have really hurt me. Even the District Mock exams that is mandatory for candidates preparing for the BECE across the country, I have not been able to write because of what they have done to me.”
