The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says gunmen raped two minors of the same family during an attack on Nuku village in Kaiama LGA of Kwara state.

In a statement on Thursday, Babawale Afolabi, spokesman of Kwara command, said the gunmen abducted two minors of the same family and injured the head of the family and one other person with machete.

He said the abducted girls were later released after the abductors had carnal knowledge of them.

“In the early hours of November 3, some yet to be identified gunmen invaded Alhaji Hassan Yunusa’s settlement, at Nuku village in Kaiama,” he said.


“Investigation revealed that the assailants were actually looking for money, as they ransacked the whole place and could not find anything.

“They attacked Alhaji Yunusa and Woru Yunusa with multiple machete wounds and went away with two girls, but later released them few hours later.

“It was discovered that the abductors had canal knowledge of the innocent girls.”


The spokesman said the two victims are receiving medical treatment at a medical facility and that a series of medical tests has been conducted on them.

He added that security operatives have started an investigation to apprehend the “evil men for prosecution to serve as a deterrent”.
