A police inspector attached to Mkpat Enin Police Division in Akwa Ibom State has allegedly raped a 15-year-old senior secondary pupil of Community Secondary School, at gunpoint, while she was returning from church on Thursday, last week.
She added that, “After he had forced me to remove my clothes, he ordered me to lie down and open my legs. And what I noticed was that he brought out his penis and inserted it into my vagina. As he was romping over me, he forbade me crying as he threatened to shoot me if I should open my mouth.
But when I could not bear the pains any longer as blood was running out of my private part, he quickly took me into the vehicle and drove to the station, where he detained me from Thursday till Saturday. It was my uncle, Dr. Ime Stephen that came from Abuja and bailed me out with N10,000."
She told Punchng that she did not know her mom, who left her dad when she was a toddler, and dad has also become paralysed after he fell from a palm tree. He now lives with her in her uncle’s house.
Her uncle, Stephen, who said the officer in question was a prosecutor, explained that he could not believe his eyes when the girl identified him. He said, “The inspector for pointing a gun he was given on trust at a girl of 15 before raping her, lacks the characters of police officers who are meant to protect lives and property of Nigerians.
He is a fraud by also taking the girl into the police custody for three days and collected N10,000 as bail sum from the girl’s guardian. We call for his dismissal from the force so that he can be prosecuted accordingly.”
