The Enugu state police command has arrested its assistant superintendent of police (ASP), Vincent Oke serving in Awgu Police Division for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year-old female detainee, Precious Ojanukwu.
The state police public relations officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, in a statement on Saturday said the state commissioner of police, CP Ahmed Ammani ordered the deputy commissioner of police in charge of the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (State CIID) ‘to conduct a thorough investigation and bring up actionable findings on the report.’
According to Ndukwe, “CP Ammani directed that the investigation be concluded within the shortest possible time,” adding that ‘’the CP assured that the case will be given the deserved attention and that the ASP or any other person or persons found culpable will be appropriately sanctioned’’.
The CP, in the statement, added that “The Nigeria Police Force, which is a disciplined organization, does not condone acts against the rights and dignity of the person.”
He assured that justice ‘will be duly served on all involved in the case, advising the parties to make available all the necessary information required in the investigation.
