The Police in Enugu State has confirmed the nab of nine suspected rapists, who are said to have raped female members of a church at the outskirts of Enugu.

This was revealed in a statement from the Spokesman of the command, Mr Ebere Amaraizu – a Superintendent of Police – in Enugu on today.

According to the statement, the arrest was made possible by a “well-co-ordinated intelligence information’’.

Amaraizu said that policemen in Ozalla arrested the suspects during a night vigil in a church located at Akpasha community in Nkanu West Local Government Area.

He said that the suspects were rounded up at about 2 a.m. on Saturday.

Amaraizu said that the suspects often pretended to be worshippers in the church and would take advantage of any female worshipper going out to answer nature’s call “and wreck the havoc.”

“They forcefully have carnal knowledge of their victims.

“This nefarious act is done while service in the church is going on, and after the rape, they run away,” he said.

He said that the suspects were already regretting their actions, and were helping police in the investigation of the matter.
