We gathered that the NSCDC officer raped the two the girls, aged 10 and 12, multiple times in his apartment before the case was reported to the police in the area.
The victims’ mother, who reported the case, said the incident was already causing the children psychological trauma.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Diri-Ogbere Solomon, in a statement over the weekend, confirmed that it received a report regarding the alleged defilement of two underage sisters in Nembe by one of its personnel.
Solomon stated that the NSCDC was investigating the matter and that if the information was found to be correct about the alleged crime, the suspect would face the full wrath of the law.
He stated that the situation was being handled appropriately as disciplinary measures were being instituted, adding that the agency would not hide any of its personnel found to have committed such a crime.
