Three security guards were arrested and will be charged with child rape after they allegedly raped a little girl inside a church, police in Nigeria said.
Anambra State Police said that they arrested three security guards of the Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, for gang raping a 14-year-old girl on Saturday.
According to the initial investigation, the girl came to the church with two other boys to collect firewood. They were approached by the security guards, who grabbed the girl, took her to a room and raped her.
The suspects will be brought before a magistrate’s court for bail hearings. Charges are still pending.
Last year, six men were arrested and charged with rape related charges after they gang raped a teen girl for several hours in a basement, according to a statement released by police in Malaysia.
A high school student was allegedly raped by six men, including her boyfriend in Kampung Akil, Kota Baru.
According to the initial police investigation, it is believed that before the incident took place, the victim had left home at 1:00 am on Friday to follow her boyfriend into the house of his friend’s grandfather.
It is believed that the victim had been raped repeatedly by the suspects, police spokesperson Azham Othman said.
“Based on the initial investigation and confirmation of physicians, there were signs of tear in the teen girl’s private parts indicating that she was raped,” the police spokesperson also said.
“After receiving the police complaint, we immediately arrested the suspects, who are all aged between 17 and 18, in their homes,” Othman said.
Othman said all the suspects were former students who were in the same class with the victim.
