Flavour’s concert: ”No reported case of rape in our command” Enugu Police declares
By Rita Chioma,
The Enugu state police command says there has been no reported case of rape from the musical concert organized by singer, Chinedu Okoli aka Flavour on Saturday March 31st at the Michael Okpara Square, Enugu State.
Some Nigerians on social media had alleged that over 20 girls were raped, some of the rapist allegedly wore masks during the attack.
The state police command had released a statement saying it will be investigating the matter.
Yesterday, the state police command spokesperson, Ebere Amaraizu, briefed journalists where he stated that there has been no case of rape lodged in any of its police divisions.
Amaraizu doubted the veracity of the reports of the alleged mass rape.
”The newspaper report (of the mass rape), which is based on a twitter message is unfounded and we cannot operate on speculations as a law enforcement agency.
Till now, nobody has come forward to report any case of sexual assault or molestation and rape to the Command.
However, our doors in the Command, divisional headquarters and stations all over the state are open for anybody or group to make a report and we will take it up from there by doing further investigation.
There is no reported case of rape (from the musical concert) anywhere in the Enugu State Police Command.
We don’t have any incident arising from that event.
Whoever that has any should come forward, and we will look at it” he said
Speaking further, Amaraizu said ” You even begin to ask yourself, those people that quoted number of the rape victims as 20, how did they do the counting?
Does it mean they were following the rapists around and taking the data? Or the victims were assembled at one place and raped? Who are these victims? ”.
