2 members of a 6-man gang have been arrested by police in Ondo state after reports that they took turns to rape a teenage girl.
The girl, a 16-year-old secondary school student, was said to have been attacked by the boys, who are said to be members of a fraternity known as “Blue Angel”.
The incident took place in Akure, the state capital and the suspects were said to have recorded the act on a mobile phone.

The boys took turns on the girl and threatened to upload the video on the Internet if she dares to report them to her parents or the Police.
However, two of the alleged rapists have been arrested by officials of the state command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, while four others are on the run.
The victim (names withheld) said that the six boys blindfolded her and threatened to rip her open with knife if she failed to cooperate.

According to Balogun, the suspect said they saw the girl on her way from school when one of them invited her for a chat and the six of them raped her.
