An 18-year-old girl, simply identified as Jennifer, has allegedly been gang raped by five boys reported to be her friends in Kaduna state.


It was gathered that the incident occurred some weeks back in Narayi, a small community in Kaduna south local government area.

The boys were said to have carried out the action on the teenager after giving her a liquid content — said to be a mixture of alcohol and drugs — to drink.

It is understood that two of the suspected rapists have been apprehended while the remaining three boys are currently at large.


A lady had taken to the microblogging platform to narrate how Jennifer’s “family has been on the case for weeks, the only thing Nigeria police has been doing is extorting money from her family and they have Two of the 5 guys in jail but the parents of one of them is asking these girls.”


Reacting to the development on her Twitter page, Hafsat Baba, the state commissioner for human services and social development, on Sunday night, said the matter would be investigated while the perpetrators would be apprehended.

“Thanks for reporting. We are on it, and we will surely get to the bottom of this and ensure #JusticeForJennifer,” she wrote.

When contacted on Monday, Mohammed Jalige, spokesman of the Kaduna state police command, told TheCable Lifestyle that the matter is still under investigation.

“The case is still under investigation, maybe you should call me later in the day,” he said.

Meanwhile, several Nigerians have taken to social media platforms to condemn the action while calling on the state government to ensure the perpetrators are brought to book.


“There are women everywhere, why should any man rape any woman, except you’re a beast with low self-esteem. I suggest any thoroughly confirmed rapist should be castrated. Jennifer’s rapists should never go unpunished. #JusticeForJennifer,” a Twitter user wrote.
