Policeman allegedly rapes 13-year-old girl in Benue

Youths in Ayilamo community in the Logo Local Government Area of Benue State, on Thursday, protested the alleged raping of a 13-year-old girl by one of the policemen attached to a police outpost in the area.

The youths reportedly vandalised the windows and doors of the police station while the alleged rapist was said to have been whisked away by his colleagues.
According to a community leader, Wuam Hilega, one Inspector Joseph, allegedly raped the girl, schooling around Tombo Ward, Ayilamo.

He said, “The incident happened around 5 pm on Thursday. Five female pupils of Tombo Community Secondary School, Ayilamo were sent on an errand by their game master to fetch water from a nearby hand dug well. The well is closed to Mobile Police Quarters but the mobile policeman, one Inspector Joseph, called one of the girls to come. The girl was afraid to meet with him but the policeman threatened to deal with her. So, the other girls advised her to go.
But when she got to the place, the police inspector immediately dragged the girl into a room, pulled off her clothes and defiled her.

“The other girls ran back to the school and reported to the principal and other staff members who mobilised and went to the place. They broke the door open and the policeman was caught naked, while the girl was also bleeding and crying.”

The community leader said the alleged rapist was rescued by his colleagues and taken to Logo Divisional Police Station in Ugba on Friday.
Efforts to get the reaction of the police spokesperson in the state, DSP Catherine Anene, proved abortive as she neither picked up calls to her mobile phone nor responded to a text message
