Blessing David, a 19-year-old member of the Marine Girls court group, on Thursday confessed that she slept with 10 men as part of her initiation process.
She stated this at the headquarters of the Edo State Police Command in Benin City, when she was paraded alongside 15 armed robbery suspects, 6 cultists, 3 kidnappers and 4 murder suspects.
“My name is Blessing David. I was initiated into the cult last year. I slept with 10 men as part of the initiation process,” she stated.
Another member of the Marine girls, Ada Emeka, 16, also noted that she slept with 10 men during her initiation.
Speaking at the Edo State Police Command, the Commissioner of Police, Johnson Kokumo, stated that 2 suspected armed robbers were killed in the early hours of Thursday by the police.
“An eight-man robbery gang, who operated at the Amagba area of Benin City, robbed 13 houses, injuring victims with machetes and other weapons during the operation that started around 12am on Thursday and lasted till 3am. The police engaged them in a gun duel and in the process, two of them were killed,” Kokumo stated.
One of the victim who identified one of the robbers narrated how they invaded their house while they were asleep.
“The robbers removed the window and used blocks to hit the door protector repeatedly before it gave way. They entered our room, collected the money available, injured my mother and my newborn baby with machetes, and smashed my wife’s iPhone on the wall when it was obvious that they could not make use of the phone.
“When they left my place, they robbed about 13 other houses before people called the vigilante group and the police. When the police came, they started exchanging gunfire with the robbers. Two of them were killed and one was arrested. This one was the one who smashed my wife’s iPhone,” the victim identified as Eghosa, said.
