Benue Police Dismiss Constable For R3ping Detained 16-year-old Girl In Custody



A police constable has been dismissed in Benue state.


Belasa Iyangedue was dismissed for allegedly r3ping a 16-year-old girl who was in detention.


Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Bartholomew Onyeka told newsmen on Tuesday in Makurdi that Iyangedue had been arraigned as the police had the statutory responsibility to fight crime.


Iyangedue’s offence, he added, was against the ethics of the profession.


He said the dismissed constable allegedly committed the offence at Tse Agbaragba Divisional Police Station at Konshisha Local Government Area.

“He was not only dismissed but he is facing prosecution. When civilians commit such offences they are prosecuted. He is facing dismissal and prosecution,’’ Onyeka said.


Police detained the r3pe victim on Aug. 15 for alleged defamation but the dismissed constable, allegedly, took her out of the cell and unto the Divisional Police Officer’s office where he r3ped her.


Upon her release from detention the day after, the victim reported the incident to the police.
