Nigeria’s number one police officer, Mr. Mohammed Adamu, has been urged to release the report of the rape allegation leveled against the Kogi State Commissioner for Water Resources, Hon. Abdumumini Danga.
The Kogi State Trade Union Congress (TUC), through its chairman, Comrade Ranti Ojo, made this known on Thursday during a peaceful protest in Lokoja, the state capital.
Ojo, who described rape as a grievous offence, asked the Inspector General of Police to tender the police’s investigation five months after a lady allegedly accused the commissioner.
“We are here to lend our voices against rape in Kogi State and Nigeria in general. Collectively, we must stop rape because it is a sin against God and does not speak well of humanity.
“I’m calling on the government and institutions that are saddled with the responsibility, to implement stiffer punishment against every culprit that is involved in rape no matter how highly placed he may be.
“In Kogi State, it was alleged that the Commissioner for Water Resources, Hon. Abdumumini Danga, raped a lady. Up till this moment, the public has been kept in the dark. Let me make this passionate appeal to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Muhammed Adamu that this case must not be swept under the carpet.
“The IG must investigate this case and tell Nigerians what the outcome is. If the commissioner is found wanting, he must face the full wrath of the law.”
