A 26-year-old lady, identified as Blessing Ashibuogwu, is currently fighting for her life after an Okada rider beat her unconscious and raped her inside a bush in Idumunei quarters, lssele-Uku, Delta State.
According to a source, Blessing had boarded the bike on her way to church on Sunday August 9, 2020, but instead of taking her to her destination, the rider, one Ododo Nwaolai, took her to a bush, where he allegedly brutalized and raped her.
“He tore her clothes with a jack-knife, used plank and cutlass to beat her to the point of death, raped and left her unattended to.
She was later rescued by Issele-Uku vigilante and rushed to St Threasa hospital, Issele-uku, where she was later referred to Federal Medical Center emergency ward Asaba. She is in a critical state as we speak,” said the source.
The culprit has been arrested by the police in Issele-uku.
