SS1 Student, 15-Year-Old Girl Raped By Police Inspector In Akwa Ibom State Cries Out For Justice
15-year-old Mary Udo’s family members in Mkpat Enin LGA of Akwa Ibom State have accused a police inspector attached to Mkpat Enin division of raping their 15 year old daughter at gunpoint.
The SS1 pupil narrated her ordeal during her family visit to The Nation office in Uyo today.
In her words:
“I was coming from church in Ikot Abasi Akpan last Thursday when police stopped me. The Inspector ordered me to step aside and took me to the dark portion of the road. The policeman forcefully ran his fingers through my breasts and asked me why my breasts are this big. After he had forced me to remove my clothes, he ordered me to lie down and open my legs. And what I noticed was that he brought out his penis and inserted it into my vagina. As he was romping over me, he forbade me crying as he threatened to shoot me if I should open my mouth.
“But when I could not bear the pains any longer as blood was running out of my private part, he quickly took me into the vehicle and drove to the station, where he detained me from Thursday till Saturday. It was my uncle, Dr. Ime Stephen that came from Abuja and bailed me out with N10,000.”
She said her mother left her dad when she was a toddler.
Her uncle said her father has been paralyzed since the day he fell from the top of a palm tree.
Akwa Ibom Police Commissioner Murtala Mani said the force had commenced investigation into the case.
