Actually, it was after I regained consciousness that I was feeling pain in my vagina.

I found out that I was fingered according to the report and saw bruises seen all over my body.”

The suspects were arrested and detained at the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Unit of the Police force in Port Harcourt while the parents of the victim charged the police to follow the case to a logical conclusion.

“When I saw her, she was not in her senses. I started asking questions. Then they told me that they have arrested the suspects. I saw the suspects and they told me what happened.

We took her to a psychiatric hospital. They tested her and did everything. Wherever we went, the NYSC followed us on the matter. An NYSC official reported the issue to the headquarters. If we allow this matter to die, they will do the same thing to other female corps members. That is why I decided to come to FIDA
