Men of the Kano State Police Command have arrested a police orderly attached to the Executive Chairman of Kabo Local Government Council of the state for allegedly gang-r*ping a 17-year-old girl at gunpoint.
The Corporal, whose identity the State Command has so far kept secret was arrested with four others, who conspired with him to sexually assault the teenager, using his service pistol, at a location at Shanono, headquarters of Shanono Local Government Area of the state.
“A Police Corporal has been arrested and taken to state Criminal Investigation Department for investigation over the complaint that him and two others gang-r*ped a lady,” reports Vanguard, quoting a security source.
“It is suspected that the lady was threatened. You know orderlies that are attached to VIPs are normally armed. So as I speak with you, a police corporal and two other suspects have been detained for raping a lady in Shanono Local Government and the police officer is the orderly to Kabo Local Government chairman.
The source said further that it was a gang rape. “The case is with the police authorities and they are handling the matter. We know that the suspects have been detained; we are waiting to know what would come up next,” he said.
Acting Police Public Relations Officer of the Police Command, ASP Mustapha Abubakar, confirmed to Vanguard over the phone.
“Yes, it is true our officer was involved in a gang rape and the affected officer and his accomplices have been taken into custody.
“We have in our custody the police orderly and four other suspects. The CID has commenced investigations to get to the root of the matter,” he said.
Abubakar said the suspects wil be charged to court on completion of investigation.
