JTF officer accused of raping four-year-old girl in Plateau
One James Ikraga (not real names), a member of the Special Task Force, STF, in Plateau state has been accused of raping a four-year-old girl in Kassa village, Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of the state.
Residents claimed that Ikraga was in the habit of raping minors as this was the third time he would be caught in the dastard act.
The Chairman of the Local Government, Emmanuel Loman, confirmed the incident, saying “a policeman attached to the STF in Barkin Ladi raped a girl at Kassa village yesterday.
“The girl has been bleeding profusely and currently hospitalised at the Barkin Ladi General Hospital.”
He added that. “it is sad that some security personnel posted to restore law and order have abandoned their duties for something else. What has restoring order got to do with defiling a minor?”
Loman called on the Commander of STF, Major General David Enetie, to ensure that the suspect does not go unpunished, just as he vowed that local government would not allow the case to be swept under the carpet.
The Medical Officer of Barkin Ladi General Hospital, Bapigang Audu, said, “A minor of about four years was, yesterday, rushed to the hospital and from results conducted so far, there was forceful penetration as her hymen was broken.”
