It was a disheartening experience for a female banker based in Abuja as she was abducted by some waste scavengers at a shopping mall in the city, and taken to their hideout where they gang-raped her before robbing her of her possessions.

According to Daily Trust reports, the lady had gone to a shopping complex at the Mabushi area of the Federal Capital Territory when the miscreants sneaked into her parked car and on her return, forced her to drive to their camp where they defiled her and also stole her valuables.

Police reports have it that the scavengers had laid wait for the woman in her car and when she got in, they forced her to drive the car with them to a dumping area where they molested, raped and robbed her.

“The woman parked her car opposite NEXT Park and Shop. When she came out, she noticed that her car was open. She thought she forgot to lock it, and as she wanted to drive out, one of the criminals who was already hidden at the back seat pointed a locally made pistol at the back of her head while another brought out dagger and told her to drive.

When they got to their hideout, they took turns to rape her, injuring her in the process.

The miscreants let her go after they made her promise that she will not report the incident to the police.”

The lady later reported the incident at Mabushi Police Station before being taken to a private hospital where she is currently receiving treatment.

The Mabushi Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Chief Superintendent Ayobami Surajudeen, confirmed the incident, vowing to make sure the scavangers who perpetrated the act are brought to book.

“The brief I got was that the scavengers are aggressive and what we have decided to do is to have our patrol vehicle stationed in the place 24 hours a day.

They are the only people living in the area but there is this speculation that most of the items they have in the place are stolen and we will do everything within our resources to curb their activities.”
