Rape in police cell: Victim sues NPF N750m, Inspector demoted, guard dismissed

Esse who was detained with two men was reportedly raped by the same men even when the police were on duty. The abused lady has filed a suit against the Nigeria Police, demanding for a compensation of N750 million over the said abuse.

The victim through her counsel, Barr. Efe Ejomafuvwe, instituted the suit at the Federal High Court in Warri, Delta State.

The two men, who allegedly raped Mrs. Ozegbe, are currently standing trial at a Magistrate Court in Abraka.

Meanwhile, the Abraka police station cell guard has been dismissed from the police force as a result of the fall-out of the rapecarried out by the two men inside the station’s cell. Besides, a police inspector, Mrs. Erebi Akporunor has been demoted to the rank of sergeant.
