UNIMAID Nursing Student Raped And Bathed With Acid
Two gangs of armed robbers have raped a final year student of the Department of Nursing, College of Medicine, University of Maiduguri, Fatimah Abu.
They also bathed her with acid after they had had carnal knowledge of her around a Cemetery in Gwange area of Maiduguri.
The student ran into the armed robbers while going to her house after school. She boarded a tricycle without any premonition that the only passenger and the driver were robbers.
She was consequently abducted by the robbers and taken to the bush near the cemetery to rape her.
After some hours, Abu regained her consciousness but noticed that her face and limbs had corroded due to the effect of the acid poured on her.
She managed to crawl to the road where another tricycle operator was able to rescue her and drive her to the police station.
The police division later rushed her to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital, Gwange, where she is currently receiving treatment.
Our correspondent learnt that the victim’s purse, containing her phone and some money, was taken away by the suspects, who dumped her by the roadside.
However, Damian Chukwu, the state Commissioner of Police, informed our correspondent that acid was not poured on the victim, saying the police were on the trail of the suspects.
