A carpenter, Mr Casmir Eze, from Umugoji Orba in Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu State, is the subject of an investigation by the Enugu State Police Command.
Mr Eze had allegedly raped a 15-year-old minor at gun point. Mr Ebere Amaraizu, the command’s spokesman, revealed this in Enugu on Tuesday in a signed statement.
The statement alleged that the suspect, a carpenter, Mr Casmir Eze, had on Sunday at about 2 a.m., gained entrance into the compound of the victim by scaling the fence. He had thereafter, forced the victim to open the door or risk being killed. He had then committed the act on the girl, pointing a gun at her after having her switch off the light.
The statement read:
“When the victim, who was warned not to shout, opened the door the suspect who allegedly was covering his face with scarf went into the room and allegedly pointed a gun at the victim. The suspect then commanded her to switch off the light and thereafter forcefully pounced on the victim and had carnal knowledge of her. Angered by this and unknown to the suspect that he was identified by the victim, the victim reported to her relations who assisted her to report to the police. This led to the police arresting the suspect, who is now helping the police operatives in their investigation into the matter.”
