An attempt by some notorious herdsmen to rape a six-month-pregnant woman was frustrated by a group of local miners in Jol community, Riyom Local Government Area, Plateau State yesterday.

It was learnt that the pregnant woman (name withheld) was on her way home from Rotchu (Rafin-Acha) to Tarai Hamlet at about 3:45 pm when some hoodlums suspected to be herdsmen attacked her.

The National President of Berom Youth Movement (BYM), Barrister Dalyop Solomon Mwantiri, who confirmed the incident in a statement said: “Information reaching out has it that two Fulani assaulted and attempted raping Mrs Esther Zakka of Tarai Hamlet, Jol Community of Riyom LGA at about 2:00 pm this afternoon, 14th June 2024.

“According to a local source, a six-month-pregnant woman, Mrs Esther Zakka, was on her way home from Rotchu (Rafin-Acha) to Tarai Hamlet after retiring from work.

“Unfortunately for her, two Fulani violently accosted and hit her laps to weaken her resistance to the criminal assault and attempted rape.

“The source further disclosed that one of the suspects forced himself on her pregnancy while another held her neck, defying repeated pleas.

“In the ensuing struggle, she became weak and couldn’t help herself except scream, which attracted the attention of miners who came to her rescue and arrested one of the suspects, who is currently with Operation Rainbow Unit in Jol.

“It was also gathered that the security agents have rushed her to the hospital for medical treatment”.

Efforts made to reach the spokesman of Operation Save Haven (OPSH), Major Samson Khazom, were unsuccessful.
