Mr Ahmed Ammani, the Enugu State Commissioner of Police, has ordered the investigation of an Assistant Superintendent of Police for alleged sexual assault.
The state police command’s spokesman, Daniel Ndukwe, confirmed the development on Saturday in Enugu, saying the ASP, who is attached to the state’s Awgu Police Division, would be questioned for sexually assaulting a detained 17-year-old girl.
He added that though the alleged sexual assault occurred on March 18, the girl’s family brought up the matter recently.
Ndukwe said: “The commissioner of police ordered the state Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department to conduct a thorough investigation and bring up actionable findings on the allegation.
“He further directed that the investigation be concluded within the shortest possible time.
“He assured that the case would be given the deserved attention and that the ASP or any other person or persons found culpable, will be appropriately sanctioned.”
