Police officers arrested for indecently assaulting a 15 yr old girl

Three police officers and the serving coordinator of Ohaozara Development Centre, Ene Ogbonnaya have been arrested by the Ebonyi State Police Command for allegedly torturing and assaulting a 15-year-old girl, Uzoamaka Unogbo. The state Commissioner of Police, Peace Ibekwe Abdallah, disclosed in Abakaliki while briefing journalists on the efforts of the command to reduce crime in the state.

She said Ogbonnaya and two others allegedly tortured and indecently assaulted the victim in Umunaga village, in the Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state. The commissioner said the victim did not commit any offence to warrant the torture.
“They stripped her naked, whipped her with cables and canes and, thereafter, posted her nude pictures and video on the social media.
“The policemen indicted in the incident have also been arrested and they are going through the police disciplinary procedures before the commencement of prosecution. The victim has just been able to make her painful statement and the case is being diligently investigated to ensure that justice is done in this scandalous act.”
