2011 Gang Rape Actually Took Place In Rivers State And Not Abia State

Remember the very popular gang-rape case which allegedly took place at the Abia State University, ABSU? You can see the story HERE. Well, investigations have shown that the ugly incident actually took place at Obite in Etche local government area of Rivers State and not Abia State as widely believed.

And this new development is really making the Abia state government go gaga...a warning has been issued on the fact the Abia State government will no longer watch rumour mongers deliberately tarnish its image. 
The Chief of Staff to the state governor, Mr. Cosmos Ndukwe, warned that the state had had enough of the embarrassment. 
 He said the state government would no longer take kindly to politically- motivated bad press directed against it. "Henceforth, the state government would undertake extreme legal actions against any person or group of persons who trade in spreading dangerous rumour against it," Ndukwe said at a media briefing.
 According to him, those who linked the incident to Abia State University were hasty and to say the least, made with so much bad blood. 
He said they already formed their opinion without any investigation, noting that they also refused to listen to Abia State Police Command which preliminary investigations showed that the incident did not happen in the state.
 Ndukwe said: "This vindication coming two years after, is thought-provoking as it is utterly gratifying."
