Nigerian woman ganged raped by five men at the immigrant center in south Cyprus

A 34-year-old Nigerian woman living at the Pournara reception centre for asylum seekers in south Cyprus was ganged raped by a group of five men.

The victim reported the case to Greek Cypriot police on Wednesday where she claimed she was gang raped.

The alleged sexual assault took place a few minutes after midnight on Tuesday, according to the woman’s complaint to the police.

The asylum seeker said that while she was staying at a room in the Kokkinotrimithia based centre, several men entered, who attacked and raped her.

The media reported that the suspects are five men from Nigeria. 

During police investigations at the scene, officers found several marijuana cigarettes and a grinder.

It has not been decided yet where the woman will be accommodated pending the investigation of the case. She has recently received a release document from the centre since the examination of her documents is at an advanced stage.

It is not the first time that an asylum seeker in overcrowded Pournara reports being raped, with the supervisors there handling issues of this kind quite sensitively, police also said.
