Those guys should be ashamed of themselves! Seven corps members returning from the recent holidays were among 16 passengers attacked by robbers at a spot on Kaduna-Abuja highway on Sunday.
The females among the corps members serving in Enugu and Ebonyi states were reportedly rap*d by the bad guys who blocked the highway and stopped vehicles with impunity.
A victim of the attack revealed to the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday that the 16-seater bus carrying them was attacked by the robbers who disguised as policemen.
She said the bus left Television Garage in Kaduna around 8:30pm and was attacked a few kilometres away. The robbers mounted a road block to create impression that they were policemen on duty.
“As we approached the road block, the driver noticed that they were not policemen and tried to retreat but it was late.
“The robbers sensing what our driver wanted to do, left other cars and descended on us,” she said.
The female corper said the robbers forcefully rap*d all the female corps members in the bus and took all their belongings which included laptops, jewelries, handsets, foodstuffs and money.
Some of the corpers have cried out to government to ensure adequate security on the highways.
