Shocked by her revelation, the grandfather took the victim to the hospital at 2am on Tuesday (Jan 8) for a thorough check, subsequently led to the arrest of the two men at 10am the same day at their unnumbered squatter house near here.

The victim is understood to be familiar with the suspects.

She is said to have received treatment for a bleeding anus.

If convicted the suspects face a minimum sentence of five years and a maximum of 20 years imprisonment and liable to whipping.
