The family of an unnamed 16-year-old girl has petitioned the inspector general of police, Ibrahim Idris, over allegation that one Officer Henry at the Ojo Division, Lagos state police command abducted, molested, tortured and impregnated her.
The victim’s family said the girl has since given birth to a baby five month ago, remarking that she was forced to relocate to her village in Anambra because of the incident, the Vanguard reports.
Chukwudumaga Obadike, the victim’s elder sister, stated: “On May 8, 2017, I discovered that my 16-year-old younger sister was missing. Later that evening, we reported it at Ajangbadi police station in Lagos.
“However, two months after, to our surprise, on July 10, I was arrested by policemen from Ojo Division, that my sister, whom I had declared missing, was wanted at the station for allegedly stealing N1.5 million from one of their officers identified as Officer Henry. I told them that we were looking for her and had declared her missing.
“The policemen went to Ajangbadi police station with me to ascertain if truly I reported her missing. They wanted to lock me up but I resisted. They later released me by 11 pm and told us to report at the station the following day.”
Chukwudumaga said the family was able to bring the victim back to Lagos. She said: “My sister said Officer Henry met her on her way home the day she went missing and took her to a hotel where he raped her."
"She said Officer Henry abducted her, kept her in his house and his wife was using her as a maid and Officer Henry would rape her anytime his wife was not at home.”
When contacted about the incident, CSP Mohammed Sanusi, the officer in charge of Department of State Security Service (SARS) Ikeja, CSP Mohammed Sanusi dismissed the allegation.
Sanusi remarked: “I do not allow underaged persons to be detained in SARS cell under my watch. Maybe, they were doing that before I came but since I came here, no underaged person has been detained.”
