A Nigerian woman based in the United states has reportedly been robbed and raped by five men in New York after leaving church.
The Nigerian woman, a married mother of two was reported to have been assaulted at gun point by the young men on Tuesday evening after leaving the Celestial Church of Christ just after 11:00 pm.
The 50-year-old woman was reportedly approached by the men, two in number at first on 150th Street as she walked to the Jamaica subway station. The men allegedly led their victim down the block at gun point where they attacked her demanding to have her wallet.
The Nigerian woman said: “They tell me, “you don’t have money so take off your clothes!”‘
Speaking to The New York Daily News, the victim added: “I said, “What? In the middle of the street?”, at this point, the two men allegedly called over three other members of their crew who were nearby and forced her to strip on the street demanding blowjobs in place of money.
The Nigerian woman noted that she tried to scare the young men away by claiming she was HIV positive but it didn’t work to her advantage as one of them went off to get a condom.
“They said, “if you don’t do that, I’ll shoot you, so I did what I had to do.”
She further alleged that one of her attackers racially insulted her by calling her a “stupid African woman” and thereafter slapped her.
The men fled after the assault allowing the Nigerian woman to run back to the church half naked and crying to her pastor, Kehinde Oyetunde
The cleric said: “She was crying and her face was full of rubbish.
“She had her clothes in her hands. She said that they pulled a gun on her and took her stuff, then wanted to sleep with her.
“She lied and told them she was an HIV patient and to please leave her alone.”
The New York Police Department officers were however able to recover at least one condom from the scene of the assault and are processing it for DNA.
The Nigerian woman is also been tested for possible evidence.
