A police inspector attached to Mkpat Enin Police Division in Akwa Ibom State has allegedly raped a 15-year-old girl at gunpoint.
The victim, a senior secondary pupil of Community Secondary School in the area, on Tuesday said she was returning from church on Thursday, last week, when a police team accosted her.
She explained that the inspector pointed his gun at her, saying if she tried to stop him from touching her he would shoot her.
She said the inspector then led her away from other members of the team to a dark portion of the road.
The policeman then forcefully caressed her breasts, saying “small you possess these types of breasts”, she said.
She added, “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.
