Security guard allegedly defiles 16-year-old over mother's refusal to marry him

A civil society organization, Center for Basic Rights Protection and Accountability Campaign has called the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education Rumulomeni, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State to hand over a staff in the security department of the University accused of abducting and defiling a sixteen-year-old girl to the Police without further delay.

The group in a statement by its coordinator, Prince Wiro expressed worry that over a week after the Aluu Divisional Police headquarters wrote to the Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Professor Ozo -Mekuri Ndimele about the incident, the security personnel identified as Mr Mgbechi Wekwe is yet to be handed over to the Police.

Mr Wiro said the group is disturbed that the security personnel who has not been handed over to the Police for investigation has been going to work and taking refuge in the institution despite the weight of the allegation against him.

The group also condemned the action of the school Management which is giving an impression that the suspect is being shielded.

Mr Wiro revealed that efforts made by the Police to arrest the suspect, aside writing to the Vice-Chancellor, has been frustrated by seeming lack of cooperation on the part of the institution.

The group also disclosed that the suspect reportedly called the mother of the alleged rape survivor two days ago, and told her the school will not hand him over to the Police as he enjoys the protection and love of some highly placed individuals in the University, in particular, the Chief Security Officer.
