They reportedly robbed the victim of her mobile phones, cash and other valuables and later raped her.

A resident, who spoke in confidence, said they took turns on the victim, despite her pleas for mercy.

“She has, however, been taken to the hospital for treatment,” the source said.

Sources said the police were alerted but they could not perform optimally due to the blackout in Yenagoa.

The Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHEDC), since last November, has thrown the state, including the capital town, into darkness.

The development led to upsurge in criminal activities, especially cult-related killings and robberies.

A vigilante, identified simply as Tonye, said policemen who arrived the scene were afraid they could run into an ambush the hoodlums laid.

Police spokesman Asinim Butswat, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said three robbers were involved in the crime.

He said the traumatised NYSC member reported the matter to the police station, including how the hoodlums took turns on her.

Butswat added that the victim made useful statement on the identities of the robbers.

He said the police immediately launched a manhunt against them.
