Police in Accra have arrested six Nigerian men at Nungua in Accra for terrorising a 21-year-old lady in Accra.
One of the six men is said to have forcibly had his way with the lady after the brutality meted out to her.
Police say the lady, a Muslim whose named has been withheld, met a Nigerian, Stephen Chimaroke, on Facebook and became friends with him.
She made Chimaroke aware that she was a Muslim and so on Sunday, he reportedly asked her to come to his house for her Sallah gift, which she did.
When she got there, police say, she found that Chimaroke was living with five other Nigerians in the same apartment.
The men are said to have immediately destroyed her phone, dragged to one of the rooms in the house, and forced her to eat garri because she had been fasting.
Police say after that, Chimaroke forced himself on the lady and had his way with her.
After satisfying himself, he reportedly locked her in the room.
Chief Superintendent of police, Kwesi Ofori said: "Chimaroke made advances and when she resisted, he smashed her phone and forced himself on her. Fortunately for her, she had another phone on her, which she used to call her brothers, who later called the police to go and rescue her.”
