Sergeant allegedly rapes neighbour’s 9-yr-old daughter

Officers of Edo State Police Command are investigating a sergeant, Umoru Babalola, who allegedly raped a nine-old-girl (names withheld).

It was learned that Edo State Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, ordered the arrest of the sergeant, following a report from the girl’s mother that the policeman, who was her neighbour, allegedly lured her daughter, a primary four pupil, and raped her in his apartment.

She said: “I came home and was told that Sergeant Umoru sent my daughter to buy him recharge card.

“I waited for her to come back, but she did not. I decided to look for her in his apartment. I knocked but nobody answered. I asked after him from his son and he said his father was inside.

“I peeped through the window and I saw him naked with my daughter crying.

“I started shouting and banging on the door. Other neighbours came out and we forced him to open the door. I took my daughter to the hospital where it was confirmed she was raped. Umoru had threatened to kill her if she told anybody.

“I reported to the police and another test was conducted in a specialist hospital, where it was also confirmed that my daughter was raped.”

Confirming the report, Edo State Police Commissioner Chris Ezike, said: “The case is being handled at the Family Unit. I have ordered that a test be conducted on the girl and we are waiting for the result.

“The command and Nigeria Police will not cover any crime among its officers and men. If it is true, he will face orderly room trial, dismissed and charged to court.”
