The four secondary school students whose name were given as Jeremiah Odah, Dick Alo, Ofobuike Alo and Obumnaeme had broken into the girl’s house and immediately demanded for sex but she refused.
This led to her being beaten-up thoroughly by the students of Galaxy foundation Secondary School, Ndiofoke Amagu, Ikwo in Ikwo local government area.
After raping her to coma, the students carried her out of her house and dropped her in a bush where she was found after two days of search party by members of the community.
According to the medical report conducted on the victim, Gladys sustained serious internal injuries in her body including private parts during the incident.
The matter was reported to the Ebonyi State family law center.
The four secondary school students had disappeared from their hostel and the community after committing the crime.
Father of the victim, Mr. Edward while at the family law centre, appealed to the court, human rights organizations and the government to intervene in the matter.
He described her daughter as a bread winner of the family, adding that through her tailoring business his family has been surviving.
