The Ebonyi Police Command says it has detained an officer, Ndubisi Ewerem, for allegedly defiling a seven-year-old girl.
The commissioner of Police, Peace Ibekwe-Abdallah, announced this on Monday in Abakaliki while briefing journalists.
Mrs. Abdallah said the officer was detained at the Central Police Station, Abakaliki, on Sunday for committing the crime.
“The act is punishable under the law, as the suspect would definitely be punished to serve as a deterrent to others.
“We are committed towards sanitising the force as acts contrary to ‘our modus operandi’ would not be condoned,” she said.
She noted that the girl’s parents reported the matter to the police and their statement indicated that she was “fingered”
The result of the medical test conducted on the victim would ascertain whether she was raped or not, as investigation into the matter is ongoing,” she said.
The command announced a week ago that it had “administratively dealt with another officer, Okporie Okporie, for allegedly defiling a nine-year-old girl”.
