Sex-for-bail scandal rocks Bariga Police Station

A widow, Mrs Adebukola Mowette, is alleging that an officer, simply identified as Egi asked her for sex to grant her bail.

“He fondled my breasts and threatened to ensure I rot in prison if I refused to sleep with him. He said in jail, they will shave the hairs on my private parts and those on my head,” the woman told The Nation yesterday.”

Mowette, who was detained on June 25, after a fight with a man, said she was yet to get over the humiliation and harassment she went through.

The Nation correspondent met her at the Bariga monarch’s place, while investigating other allegations against policemen at the division.
