A young tricycle rider was reportedly raped by three suspected ‘Yahoo plus’ boys in Anambra state on Monday.
Several reports have indicated that the boys forcefully raped the tricycle rider for ritual purposes.
The Anambra state police command has confirmed the incident and said the rider was lured into a room where he was forcefully raped.
The command’s spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, disclosed that one of the suspects had been arraigned while his allies had run away.
“The Commissioner of Police has ordered the transfer of the case to state CID for a discretion investigation.
“Preliminary information showed that the suspect hired the victim, a tricycle rider and lured him into a room before having carnal knowledge of him.
“Meanwhile, the result from the doctor’s report showed that there was penetration into his anus, but the arrested suspect has denied it.
“Further details will be communicated as investigations are still ongoing,” the PPRO said.
