Imo State Commissioner of Police, CP Aboki Danjuma, has taken decisive action following allegations of conspiracy and aiding the escape of a suspected serial rapist.
CP Danjuma ordered the immediate redeployment of Orji Divisional Police Officer (DPO), CSP Udom Godwin, to the Command headquarters in Owerri on standby.
An official query has been issued to CSP Udom Godwin and other officers serving in the division, citing serious dereliction of duty, discreditable conduct, lack of supervision, failure to send a situation report, disobedience to lawful orders, and acts of sabotage unbecoming of public officers, all linked to the case.
In a statement released to journalists in Owerri, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Henry Okoye, conveyed the Commissioner’s commitment to a thorough investigation.
“The CP has mandated the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the State Criminal Investigation Department (DCSCIID) to carry out a comprehensive investigation and ensure that all suspects involved in the alleged case of raping a 20-year-old lady in Orji are arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law,” he stated.
CSP Sabo BABA, a seasoned police officer, has been deployed to take charge as the new DPO of Orji Division.
The police assure the public that the victim will receive the justice she deserves, emphasizing a firm stance against rape, sexual abuse, and other gender-related crimes.
Further developments in this case will be communicated to the public.
