A riot policeman attached to the Special Task Force was on Wednesday  arrested for raping a four-year old girl in Jos, Plateau State.

The girl, identified simply as Helen, was allegedly raped by the policeman, said to be a 32-year corporal, serving under STF at Rapum in Kassa, Barakin Ladi Local Government Area.

Our correspondent gathered that the little girl was first treated for bleeding at the Barakin Ladi General Hospital and later discharged.
However, by the following morning, the bleeding became so severe that she had to be rushed back to the hospital.

It was gathered that the policeman, who was recently posted to the area, was known as Dogo by the locals. He was said to have covered his name and rank with his cardigan.

The parents of the girl were said to have reported the incident to the sector commander in Barakin Ladi and the policeman was promptly arrested.

As of the time of this report, the father of the girl was said to be making a statement at the office of the sector commander, while doctors were battling to save the girl’s life.

It was learnt that the suspect would soon be transferred to the STF headquarters for interrogation.

STF Media Officer, Capt. Salisu Mustapah, confirmed the story. He said the policeman would be tried according to the law.

He said, “This is an isolated case and I must tell you that we don’t condone this kind of attitude.

“The suspect is now in our custody and if at the end of the day he is found guilty, I assure you that he will never go scot free.”
