Two policemen arrested for raping teenager

20 Jul

Two police corporals have been arrested and detained on the orders of the Commissioner of Police, Osun State Command, Mrs. Kalafite Adeyemi, for raping a 15-year-old girl in Ilesa.

It was learnt that the girl was passing by Ayeso Police Station in Ilesa on Tuesday night when the armed policemen dragged her into their apartment beside the station and allegedly raped her.

A source gave the name of the victim as Bisola.

Police Public Relations Officer of the command, Mrs. Sade Odoro, on Wednesday said, “They (policemen) cannot escape because this is a command known for discipline.

“They were arrested immediately and they have been transferred to Osogbo. Their dismissal is guaranteed. The girl has been taken to the hospital for treatment.”

Criticisms have greeted the action of the policemen with a cross-section of members of the public condemning the act.

A native of Ilesa, Mr. Seyi Akingbehin, called for a thorough investigation into the case, adding that the policemen must be brought to book if found guilty.

    What a shame for Nigeria police. This shows that they are not given orientation.
