Operatives of the Bayelsa State Vigilante Service have rescued a 13-year-old girl, identified as Favour Doumo, who was allegedly locked up and s#xually mol#sted by two suspected cultists in the Tombia area of Yenagoa, the state capital.
The vigilante rescued the victim on Thursday, September 22, and also arrested the prime suspect and one of the suspected cultists, Christopher Abraham, 37.
The Chairman of the State Vigilante outfit, Hon. Doubiye Alagba, who led members of his team on the operation, said the suspect, was arrested with a g#n, phones, money and other items.
He disclosed that the suspect has already confessed that himself and his accomplice, who is now at large, are members of a cult group.
“The suspect is a known dr#g dealer and they are part of the persons causing unrest in the state,” he said.
The suspect, a native of Ndoro in Ekeremor Local Government council area, claimed that the victim is his girlfriend and that he spent money on her but discovered that she che@ted on him with other men, adding that “he invited her to the hotel, they had argument and he went ph¥sical with her out of anger.”
Narrating her ordeal, the victim said she met the suspect barely a week and he invited her to the hotel.
“I got to the hotel to meet him only for him to accuse me of che@ting on him, that while I was away for an exam which I travelled for few days ago, that I went to meet another man.
He locked me in the hotel room. And later in the company of his friend, one Efe, used a g#n to thre@ten me that I will not go anywhere. They str#pped me off my clothes, filmed me with their phones and mol#sted me. He told me that he is a g#n tr@fficker and that he has been to prison and that the government knows him,” she said.
