A lawyer with the Centre for Basic Rights Protection and Accountability Campaign, Festus Bomwin, has called on the Rivers State Police Command led by CP Friday Eboka to begin a thorough investigation of the complainant and the alleged rapist cop involved a sex scandal.

He also advised the accused policeman to submit himself to authorities for questioning.

A 17-year-old girl simply identified as Binla had alleged that a policeman stripped her and her friend, took their nude videos and raped them, after accusing them of stealing his N500,000 in Port Harcourt.

The teenager claimed that the officer, Salihu Kazeem, took her and her friend into a room in his house and teargassed them before having carnal knowledge of them till the following morning.

Speaking to journalists in Port Harcourt, the girl said her life is now in danger since the alleged rapist started trailing her after she reported the matter to the Rumokpakani police station, near the metropolis, adding that the cop had sex with them on three other occasions.

She explained that a friend introduced her to Kazeem while looking for job sometime in March, 2022, and expressed surprise that the policeman accused her of stealing after they returned his Automated Teller Machine card, which she said the policeman gave to them to go get something to eat.
“He claimed that he was receiving many debit alerts and we asked him the amount. Recently he told us it was up to N500,000. He discharged my friend and kept me and the girl that went to buy food in his house. He called his boys and told them that we were thieves. He asked us to take off our dresses. He recorded (video) us as we were naked. He now told us that if we didn’t cooperate with him, he was going to spread the nude videos. Then he took us to a room and poured us teargas. He then slept with us till the next morning. After one month he has been coming, like three times now.”

The teenager explained how she met the policeman while job-hunting and how they got to his house.
“I was discussing with my friend that I was looking for a job. She told me that she was going to visit her friend and asked me to join her. When I saw the man, I talked with him. He asked about my age I told him I was 17 years old. He said okay, he would see what he could do. He asked if we have had something to eat, we said no. He gave us his ATM card, that we should go and get anything we wanted to eat. We bought food and came back and returned the ATM card to him”.

Reacting to the allegation, the policeman (Kazeem) denied the act, describing the girls as “hook-up girls” who consented to the sexual act.

He further explained that the girls used his ATM card to make several withdrawals after one of the hook ups.
“They came to my house, I gave Elizabeth my ATM (card) that they should go and buy food. They left with the ATM card. I didn’t see them till 11pm to midnight. None of them called me. None of them said anything to me. The only thing i was receiving was debit alert. I tried to reach Elizabeth that her friend gave me her number for hook up. She now told me that she gave my ATM to Binla, that I should not be offended. That the following day she (Binla) would come and see me. Then, who is now using the ATM that I have been receiving alert? She said the lady that was together with them in my house. I asked how did my ATM get to Binla?”

When contacted, the Rivers State Police Command spokesperson, Iringe-Koko, said the Commissioner of Police had invited both parties, adding that after hearing from them, discreet investigation will begin, and the outcome will be made known to the public, while whoever is found culpable will face the law.
