Armed hoodlums during the early hours of yesterday attacked some corps members in their private residence behind Mao Mau Hostels, off Ibori Gold Course road, Awai Asaba Quarters in Asaba, Delta State.
The notorious hoodlums allegedly raped two of the female corps members before carting away their valuables, including money.
A neighbour in the compound, Kate Okafor said the armed guys jumped into the premises through the fence and made straight to the corps members’ apartment who unsuspectingly were operating their small generating set during the period.
It was gathered that the guys intercepted the generator’s power supply and the corps members went to find out the cause of the seizure falling into the trap.

The two victims, Adachukwu and Chioma (surname withheld) are graduates of Abia State Polytechnic, posted to Asaba for their youth service.
While the operation lasted, other occupants of the compound including three other corps members were allegedly subjected to facing the ground at gun point and were also ordered to surrender their valuables to the hoodlums.
One of the male occupants, Simon (surname withheld) said he escaped and invited the police through his phone, adding that it was the first ever attack on them in the compound since he moved to the house about a year ago.
The ladies, Adachukwu and Chioma, said: “we were raped by the hoodlums after they gained entrance to our room when I tried to know what was wrong with our generating set, they took away our phones, TV Plasma, and Cash of N12, 000”.
