According to reports, the hoodlums had stopped the couple on their way to the village and stripped them of all their cash and valuables at gunpoint after which they tied the husband in a nearby bush and took turns raping the wife for more than two hours while the  innocent baby was crying non-stop.

The woman, when later seen at the Kogi State Police Command Headquarters, was in a terrible state as she had wounds all over her body especially around her waist and could barely stand alone.

Sun News reports:

It was learnt that one of the armed robbers on getting to the bush slapped the wife and forcibly took the baby away from her hands and threw the baby aside. He pointed a gun to her head and ordered her to undress.

For more than two hours, the eight robbers, one after the other, there­after engaged the poor woman in a marathon sex while the husband watched helplessly and the hapless innocent baby cried profusely.

Parading the suspects before newsmen, the Acting Commissioner of Police, Mr Abiodun Odude said the family was travelling from Ogugu in Olamaboro Local Government Area, Kogi State to Iga-Ikeje when the robbers accosted them.

Odude said the victim (names withheld) a native of Ogugu reported at the Olamaboro Police Division and stated that he was travelling in his Toyota Corolla car with his wife and baby when suddenly some eight armed robbers accosted them, dis­possessing them of their car, N6,600 cash and mobile phone sets.

The alleged robbers then bundled them into the vehicle and drove them inside the bush about two kilometres from the road, where the man was tied to a tree prior to raping the wife. Giving further explanation of what transpired, he said the wife who was oblivious of their plan as she was crying and begging them not to kill her husband. This prompt­ed one of the robbers to give her a vicious slap, took the baby away and ordered her to undress, while point­ing a gun to her head.

He said the woman fainted after the ordeal.

Done with their evil business, they sons-of-the devil tied up the woman’s legs and drove away in the car.

After about 40 minutes, the woman regained consciousness, struggled to free herself and walked to a nearby village, where she informed a group of vigilantes, who later rescued the husband.

On receiving the report, a police patrol team led by Mr. Mbang Eteng, an Assistant Superintendent of Police tracked down and arrested two of the robbers, whose names were given as Vincent Oguche from an uncompleted building, and Femi Simon, who attempted to run away, but was overpowered by policemen and both of them taken into custody.

The police said the two suspects in the course of interrogation con­fessed to the crime and thereafter led the detectives to their hideout, where the stolen car, assorted guns and handsets were recovered. The names of two other members of the gang were given as Friday Oguche and Joe Agbo. The police are still on the trail of the remaining four mem­bers who are still at large.

Vincent Oguche while acknowl­edging that he and the others actually committed the heinous crime, explained why they raped the woman despite that she was nursing a baby, saying: “We were not in our right sense because we were very high on drugs.”

Femi Simon who claimed to be a native of Iyah Gbede in Ijumu Local Government Area of the state said he was an unemployed driver who was conscripted into the deal. He said he could not control his libido when he saw his comrades-in-crime ‘enjoying themselves’ so he had to join them to have a taste of the woman.

The police rebuffed the request to speak with the woman, firmly saying she should be left alone on account of the horrendous ordeal she expe­rienced.
