20-year-old Chioma Dioke has shared the story of how her kidnappers raped her and forced her older brother to do same, before they were rescued by the police.Speaking on Tuesday, July 28, Chioma said the kidnappers held them inside a bush called Sambisa forest located in Ezzagu in Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.
Chioma, who is from Nsukka in Enugu State, and the two other victims had gone to Ezzagu to sell their goods which included noddles, diapers and oil.
The business involved a modality that allowed people of the community to invest money and those who invested were receiving high amounts as their returns.
However, the owner of the investment business reportedly ran away from the community with the payments made by their customers without the knowledge of Chioma and her brother.
In anger, the youths abducted Chioma, her brother, and the other person involved in the business and held them hostage in the bush. They were starved, threatened, and sexually assaulted.
Narrating her ordeal, she said:”A company employed me to advertise noodles, diapers, oil and other products. If you invest N1,000 in the business, you will get N1,500. We were just doing that and we were paying our customers.
