The FCT police Command said it had set up a team to probe allegations of rape against some of its personnel.

The alleged rape was said to have occurred on  April 27, 2019 when some suspected commercial sex workers were raided at Caramelo Night Club by the FCTA Joint Task Team.

Some of the commercial sex workers alleged that they were harassed, molested and assaulted by some policemen.

Following the allegation, the Command’s Deputy Spokesman, ASP Gajere Tanimu, in a statement in Abuja yesterday said the Command had sent out invitations to some individuals that may assist in the investigation.

The statement reads: “The attention of FCT Police Command has been drawn to serious allegations of rape against some of its members on social, print and electronic media. This was said to have occurred on April 27, when some suspected commercial sex workers were raided by the FCTA Joint Task Team comprising of the Department of Development Control, Abuja Environment Protection Board (AEPB) and the Social Development Secretariat at Caramelo Night Club, Utako, and also while they were kept at Utako Division.

“The command, as a responsible corporate citizen, views the allegations seriously. Consequently, a high-powered team was constituted to investigate the veracity of the allegation.

“In this regard, invitations were sent out to relevant individuals that may assist in getting to the root of the matter.

“The command wishes to assure members of the public of its zero tolerance for unprofessional disregard to human rights and stiff punishments will be meted out to erring officers.”
