The rogue police officer accused of abducting and raping a 14-year-old girl in Anambra state, has been arrested. Barau Garba allegedly raped the little girl till her vagina was ruptured, after abducting her on the 14th of October 2017.
At a press conference today, the Anambra State police commissioner, Garba Umar, said:”The Police Command wishes to confirm the arrest of F/No 275601 CPL Bara’u Garba attached to 7PMF Sokoto but deployed to Anambra State on special duty for the alleged abduction and defilement of a 14yrs old girl.
The erring policeman was arrested, defaulted and detained accordingly; and is facing Police internal disciplinary procedures. He will be arraigned before the appropriate Court of the land as soon as the criminal investigation against him is concluded. This is indeed an isolated case and does not reflect the core values and ethics of the Nigeria Police Force. Justice will not only be done but seen to have been done.”
