Three men identified simply as Cedar, Obinna and Divine have been accused of raping a 20-year-old lady for hours in a community in Owerri, Imo State.

A private investigator identified as PIDOMNIGERIA on X brought the matter to the public glare on Sunday.

In a series of tweets, PIDOMNIGERIA disclosed that one of the suspects hacked the WhatsApp of one of the victim’s friends and used it to lure the victim to a location.

“On the 18th of Nov 2023, a 20-year-old girl in Owerri, Imo state was chatted up by her very close friend on WhatsApp. She asked her to meet her at a location.

“On getting there, she didn’t see her friend. So she wanted to leave but was accosted by 3 men whom she later discovered, hacked her friend’s phone (and) got her details after stealing the phone from her friend.


“They threatened to kill her if she didn’t cooperate with them. They seized her phone and asked her to come in with them. It was too scary, she was scared about her life.

“Cedar, Obinna and Divine took the girl inside the room, and asked her to undress because they want to rape her. She begged for her life, cried profusely, begged them that she was on her monthly menstrual cycle. But all her pleas fell on deaf ears.

“Obinna asked her to undress, so he could confirm if truly she was on her monthly period. She did, and he truly confirmed. But he asked her to cooperate because Ceder is a very violent person, and he would kill her if she didn’t allow him to sleep with her. That they are in this together (and) have been doing it for a long time. That anyone who fell into the trap of Cedar could never escape it. That she should cooperate if she wanted her life.

“But he was assuring her of getting back her phone after everything. He now brought out a condom and gave to Cedar.


“Cedar rejected the condom, went ahead to rape the 20-year-old girl violently for over two hours non-stop, despite her crying and pleading.

“When he was done raping her Obinna and Divine took their turns as well. They were smoking crystal meth (Mkpuru Mmiri) (Ice) as they were taking turns to rape her.

“When one of them was violently raping her for a long period, others would be smoking Mkpuru Mmiri. After he ejaculated and came out, the next rapist would climb her to continue, while the former returned to smoking.

“So they took turns to violently rape her without condom, amidst her menstrual flow, tears and begging. They raped her all through the night violently until the next day 19th of November 2023 while smoking their Mkpuru Mmiri drug.

“As God will have it, they allowed her to go.”

PIDOMNIGERIA disclosed that the victim reported the matter to her neighbour, who organised some boys in the area and apprehended two of the suspects, Cedar and Obinna, while Divine escaped.

The matter was then reported at Orji Police Division in Owerri.

“At the police station, it was discovered that Obinna was just released in October 2023 over a similar rape case. He has been arrested twice over rape cases, but has somehow evaded justice.
So the victim is scared if justice will truly prevail under that circumstance.”

Meanwhile, Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi has assured that the alleged rapists would be brought to justice.

He gave the assurance in an X post on Sunday.

“We condemn this heinous act in totality. The matter will never be swept under the carpet or rug.

“We have contacted the Imo state police command to do the needful, and I will personally monitor it. Rape and DGV are barbaric, and we must do everything to curtail them. Thanks for calling our attention to it and following through,” Adejobi stated.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Imo, Henry Okoye, also waded into the matter, disclosing that the command is already investigating.

“Imo State Police Command is aware of this case and has taken necessary investigative steps in ensuring that the victim get the justice that she deserves. The rapists will certainly be made to face the full weight of the law,” Okoye said.
