Married FRSC officer allegedly raped 9-year-old girl consistently in Benue state
A married Federal Road Safety officer is being accused of consistently raping a 9-year-old girl in Benue state.
The man, who is also a father himself, is alleged to have started raping the girl when she was 8. He was finally exposed after a groundnut hawker caught him in the act and threatened to expose him.
At the threat from the eyewitness, the FRSC officer allegedly began to beg her not to say anything. This caught the attention of neighbors who wanted to know what he was asking her to keep a secret.
When the groundnut seller eventually opened up, the FRSC officer allegedly denied it but neighbours said it was suspicious that he was begging the girl. If indeed he wasn’t guilty, then he would have had no reason to beg the girl, they said.
The case was reported to the victim’s father and he took her to the hospital for tests where it was found that she has been violated. At this point, the suspect began bringing people to beg the victim’s father on his behalf.
The suspect was eventually arrested but later released on bail and at the moment nothing is being done to investigate further and ensure that justice is served.
