He revealed that he and his cohorts were forced into the school building on the fateful day by the torrential downpour when suddenly a lady that appeared to be in her late 20’s approached them, speaking a language they could not understand.
Garba told Vanguard that he was moved by the beauty of the ‘stranger’ and immediately drew out a sharp knife and compelled her to undress before he and his friends raped her in turns.
He said: “I took shelter in the premises of the college with my friends when it started raining on that fateful day. While we were having fun, a lady suddenly approached us and was speaking a language none of us understood.
“I was moved by her beauty and immediately drew out a sharp knife. We took her into one of the class rooms, forced her to undress and raped her in turn before policemen on patrol apprehended two of us. The other two escaped.”
