A gunman has allegedly raped a student of the College of Health Technology at the Primary Health Centre, Agbarha-Otor Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.
The gunman reportedly also carted away an android phone, ATM and unspecified amount of money from the victim.
The incident occurred at about 1:30am, July 24, DAILY POST can report.
The gunman allegedly broke into the primary health centre, threatened the student with a knife and gun before forcefully assaulting her.
The victim confirmed the incident in a chat with Our Correspondent.
She said the incident happened when she was asleep.”I felt this sensation that someone was close to me, as I am not a deep sleeper. Immediately I opened my eyes, and behold a strange person was standing by the bed I was lying in, with a knife and pointing something like a gun at me. I was terrified and scared as he signalled to me with his hand to keep quiet.
“He commanded me to stand up and led me out of where we were sleeping at the parlour to where the lady staff was sleeping at the delivery room.
“When we got there, he saw the lady lying facing the wall, then he asked me to turn around, which I obeyed because he was behind me and pointing a knife and gun at my head.
“He then asked me if there was money in the Health Centre, I told him I don’t know, and he also asked the type of phones all of us were using, then I told him that my android is already with him, but the others have button phones.
“He then led me to the matrons office and inside the office, there is a room, he took me there, drop a foam and asked me to lie down or he shot and stabbed me to death, because I was terrified, I obeyed as he directed, and he asked me to pull off my clothes and, at this point, (She paused) he raped me.
“After raping me, he asked for my phone password, my ATM password which I gave to him. He then opened the phone and started filming my nude, and warned me that if I should tell anyone, he will send my nude videos viral.
“It was like a dream to me because everything happened very fast and there was no one to rescue me. So he led me back to my room, but the surprising thing is that I didn’t hear him open the door or hear any banging of a door. It was after a minute or so that I went to wake my colleagues and narrated what happened to them and the only staff around”.

She said the staff immediately put a call through to the matron who lives in Warri, and the matron too immediately called the Chairman of the street where the Health Centre is situated in Agbarha-Otor.
“The Chairman came and asked me to follow him to the King’s palace where he said there are vigilantes but when we got there, we didn’t find the vigilantes, so he, (the chairman of the street ) said we should go to the station to report the case. On our way going, we met the vigilantes, and after interrogation they followed us to the station.”
The victim is now calling on the Police to investigate the incident and get her justice.
