Anambra State Police Commissioner, Rabiu Ladodo, confirmed this to our correspondent in a telephone chat.

He said the suspect has been arrested and detained.

Ladodo said the matter had been transferred to the state’s Criminal Investigation Department for proper handling.

While promising that the findings of the investigation will be made public, Ladodo assured that the suspect will face necessary punishment if found guilty.

Our correspondent gathered that the policeman allegedly raped a 35-year-old woman in a commercial bank premises in Awka, the Anambra State capital.

The victim (name withheld), it was learnt, had gone to make some transactions at the ATM at night when the incident occurred.

An eyewitness who pleaded anonymity told our correspondent that the victim refused the advances, until she was threatened with a gun by the suspect.

“The following day, the lady came to the bank with some policemen who arrested the suspect,” the witness stated.
